If you have Kids, this is a must go. The Dolphin show is amazing...we had so much fun. Even if you don't swim with the dolphins, the kids will have a lot of fun just watching them

In La isla mall close to hotels . Did not go this trip but went two times. I liked it better than the swim with the dolphins at wet and wild. Very organized and safe while having fun

Came here with 2 children under 5 and they had a great time petting the shark and the rays. They also loved the sea stars and the other hands on activities. The dolphins are fun even if the show is not on. There are dozens of tanks with a variety of Caribbean fish. The price is about $14 and it... More

We came here for the shark encounter and were very impressed. We showed up about an hour early as instructed. The aquarium was short and sweet. We watched the Dolphins as we waited, they were very playful. The shark encounter was worth the money and got your adrenaline pumping.

I had nothing planned for the day, I had thought about swimming with dolphins even before coming on vacation and while wandering around the mall I decided to check out the deals they had. I went with the up to 4 people dolphin swim. The first 5-10 minutes I was the only one and then another lady came and joined.... More

Its not a very big place and where the dolphins were kept is very small for animals of their size, it seemed quite cruel. You are able to touch manta rays there but one of the rays in the tank had a chunk missing out of it, the sea cucumber and star fish weren't handled with as much care as... More

This is a small aquarium that is situated at the mall. It's got a few hands on things - like you can touch the stingrays, etc. They have dolphins and sharks. It's not huge, but a good way to spend an hour or so.

You can swim with the dolphin's, sting rays, snorkel, lots to see and enjoy they have good restaurant's, and bars and lots of food, parrots, what we disliked was it takes hour and half to get there and it takes all day and you don't get back to the hotel until 7:30-8:00 PM that makes for a very long day.

This is a small aquarium, possibly even calling it an aquarium is a bit of a stretch but you can see and touch the rays and the dolphins and there is a shark tank as well. It took us about an hour to go round but that involved about 20-30 mins of us watching the dolphins. I would not make... More
