We traveled from NJ and got complementary tickets from the Grand Oasis. Our 4 and 6 yr. old enjoyed the dolphin show. Although small, the aquarium its nice and they let kids touch a few animals and learn about them. I remember touching a star fish and a sting ray. If you can afford the 'swimming with the dolphins' its... More

La Isla offers an Americanized shopping district. The biggest and best find is this Aquarium. It was $14 to get into, for the basic admission. They had a decent selection of exhibits inside, including fossils for your perusal. The outside exhibits are where it is at. They have a 'petting zoo' which is great. There is a the basic pool...

Being able to touch the sting rays was a highlight for my 3 yr old. The tank has clear plastic walls, so you can see their adorable little faces when they swim up to the edge. As you go around the outdoor exhibit, you come to a little bridge that allows you to overlook the dolphin pool. You can watch... More

In the La Isla Mall. you can swim with various wild life right in the middle of the mall. A family can actually split up, the shoppers hit the mall stores while the non shoppers hit the aquarium. It's a good time and a break if you need it from the beach and sun.

wonderful to interact with the sweet and friendly dolphins. it was the highlight of my 5yo daughter's experience there. she was on cloud nine to "train" a dolphin. I have concerns about the small tank they seemed to be confined to 24/7. I don't know anything about what dolphins need to stay mentally sound.

This is not really an acquarium but a dolphin show. It is conveniently located at La Isla mall and the best part is the Dolphin Show which is about a half hour. But that alone is worth the $12 per person admission charge. If your are in the area with kids this is worth checking out but don't make a... More

The interactive aquarium has a beautiful dolphin facility where you can swim with the dolphins. It also has several different aquariums with a variety of different species. They also have a shark tank that is 2 stories tall that not only can you stand in front of it, but you can also be lowered into it inside of a cage... More

We watched the dolphins interacting with guests. I'd say our favorite part was touching the stingrays!! I was disappointed we didn't get to see the sea lions...but we had a fabulous day anyway!

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
