Loved the park. Kids were excited to see the monkeys and they got to see a baby monkey that was only 1 day old. They do take your water that's visible. They never took or looked in my bag where I also had water. If you do go to the park please bring bug repellant. We got eaten alive by... More

Warning! When you enter a grumpy security guard demand that you hand over your water bottle! There was stacks of water bottles and every visitor that brought in a 500ml water bottle had to ditch it. Clever enough 5 meter ahead a guy sells water for $2. I never seen something so stupid like this, i will never go to... More

We booked this excursion so the children could swim with the dolphins. We were given a private tour guide who took us around and showed us the beautiful grounds. He was very informative, and genuine. Would definitely go back!

We purchased the tickets for 3 adults and 2 children at our hotel from a Vivían from Dolphin Tours at an affordable price. It even included for our children (ages 9 and 7) to swim with the Dolphins. We got VERY lucky with our OUTSTANDING Park Guide called GIANCARLOS whom we fell in love with and made sure we got... More

My family and I visited Manati our second day in Punta Cana. It was a great way to start our trip. The staff was extra friendly and kept trying to get you to buy their expensive products. However, the animals were beautiful and shows were great. It was extremely hot and the staff makes you wait in the sun for... More

Manati Park Bavaro is where you can swim with dolphins. The park itself is not that big ...there is a dolphin and sea lion show, a bird show and a tribal show that were all just the perfect length in terms of time. The highlight for us was swimming with the dolphins...and experience that everyone should have. The one negative... More

It was a decent experience with my three young children. The park is not too big but we enjoyed seeing the dolphins and parrots among other animals. The entrance fee is reasonable.
