Worlds' best dolphinariums !Dolphinaris . . . A place for you. A place for them. If you’re looking for the best place to swim with dolphins in Cancun this is the right place for you!At Dolphinaris, we provide people of all ages the opportunity to make their dreams come true. We see the evidence of this every day as we watch the faces of our guests when they meet one of our dolphins for the very first time.Located next to, but not part of the water park Wet ´n Wild and easy to get to with public transportation Dolphinaris is the best attraction for swimming with dolphins in Cancun! * We are a multimillion-dollar investment and the most advanced dolphinariums in Mexico, only in some places in the U.S.A. have the same technology we have, providing you the best quality in all aspects unlike other dolphinariums that only use a simple fishing net at the sea beach, where in addition to swimming with dolphins, you swim with algae, waves, ocean currents, ship oil and gas, you also swims with the dolphins waste, exposing you to severe skin or vital organs infections. Avoid all that... next time choose dolphinaris!

Awesome time doing the swim and ride! Trainers are very knowledgeable and good with the dolphins. Dolphins seemed to be well trained and taken care of. Shuttle that was set up was early and driver was very polite. The only negative thing about our experience was after paying $58.00 dollars for two photos they were just thrown in a bag... More

What a wonderful time we had with these amazing creatures. Gabrial was our instructor, he was pleasant, funny and overall a wonderal man. I was a bit hesitatant to do this but once in the water I didn't want to leave. I would most definately recommend this to anyone who wants a bit of interaction with these amazing dolphins.

I took my family to the Dolphinaris to swim with the dolphins, and at the end I was asked to follow a representative into the front office where he put me in front of a computer screen and showed me pictures they had taken of my wife and kids with the dolphins. The CD & DVD package were very expensive... More

We did the dolphin swim at Wet & Wild using our resort credits from our stay at the Beach Palace. Although it was basically a number of photo ops, and then they tried to sell you one picture for $35, we enjoyed the experience. I would've been disappointed if we spent full price however since there was really only one... More

My husband and I took a trip to the Dolphins whilst on our honeymoon in Cancun. I have to say, it was worth going for the platinum option. We were in a group of 6 (just us with a family of four) and got some real one on one time with the dolphins. In the platinum package you get two... More

Clean and bright dolphin area. Much more contact and activities with the dolphins than I have seen in other dolphin encounters. Included in the experience is entry into the Wet & Wild waterpark which is awesome in and of itself. Definitely plan on spending a couple of extra hours in the waterpark, before or after the dolphin encounter.
