Aquarium of the Americas will go Mayan in first major renovation since Katrina

For more than two decades, the initial “wow” moment for visitors to the Aquarium of the Americas has been the neck-twisting stroll through the 30-foot-long Caribbean Reef tunnel, with its panoramic view of a world brimming with sharks, angelfish and stingrays.
