Wow that was really special. The cost of the fun time was $14. per person. It was so great to be able to swim and to be so close to a dolphin. I had only swam before with wild ones. These are Mexico's best kept secret.

As others have mentioned, the aquarium is smallish and rather limited. However it is interesting and a nice way to pass time. I was very pleased with the restaurant. There is a bridge seating area. You can order food and drinks and watch the dolphin encounter without getting wet;-) I enjoyed the place. I've been to first class aquariums...clearly this... More

It is very sad to see the dolphins and sea lion on a so small area. Places like this should be closed as what they do with the animals is just unacceptable.

Quite expensive for so little. No Sea turtles- perhaps because law prohibits it but we were bummed that there were none. Not worth $14

Excellent value for money, basic entry even allows you to feel stingrays! Very well set up, lots to see and lots of useful information. Should sell swimming kit at start not in end shop though so can do dolphin/shark swim if forgotten swim kit.

We choose to do the Interactive Aquarium, what they provided was not what they offered in their brochures. It looked a lot nicer with a lot more interactives. There were a lot of additional charges and the place was small for the price.

Don't expect to find the biggest aquarium in town. It will take you like half an hour to check all the species they have. The dolphins show is about 30 mins. Prices for tourists are expensive as always. Prices for locals are only half if you show them your ID. You will have a great moment, though. Swimming with dolphins... More

After reading the very positive TripAdvisor reviews, I thought this would be a great way to spend a couple of hours in Cancun before dinner. The dolphin captivity area is very small and the aquarium itself didn't have many exhibits or fish. The entire facility is badly in need of a facelift. As a scuba diver, I really felt the... More
