RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – Residents and visitors to Rio will soon be able to swim with sharks and sleep under the sea at the new Aquário Marinho do Rio de Janeiro (Rio marine aquarium). The attraction was originally billed to open at the end of this year, but delays in building work have pushed its opening back until March 2016. It is due to be the largest marine aquarium in South America.
