Owner description: 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!

About a month before my trip to Cancun, I researched dolphin swims as I knew my daughter wanted to do this. After considering my options, I chose Dolphinarius because they offered a great discount if you purchased ahead on-line. Because I could not find any specific information on-line regarding their policies on pregnant swimmers, I called the customer service line... More

My children (ages 11 & 16) enjoyed the experience overall. Swimming with the dolphin lasted about 5 seconds! You are only allowed to observe from the observation deck and if your kids are swimming in the side pool, you will hardly be able to see them at all! This made me very unhappy and disappointed that I wasn't able to... More

Great show with Dolphins.You are not allowed to bring your cameras. But the packages that they are offering are pretty reasonable prize. But be aware that after show you can spend another 15 min and you done.

My 4 and 6 year olds loved it. But 58 dollars at the end for 2 pictures or 105 dollars for 15. So beware the price of the experience do not include pictures

We had to wait and finally talked Them into upgrading us for what we actually paid for at the hotel. In the end we ended... More
