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!

After this good experience i had a feeling of guilt. Would never go back. Dolphins should never be in captivity

Went alone and was a little unnerved on the ride from the resort to the venue because I was the only one in the van and I don't speak a lick of Spanish. I made it ok BUT FELT THE SAME WAY at the aquarium but got through that also. The swim was actually pretty awesome. I and three others... More

We went there with our 2 young kids and the grand parents, it was ok but the pool was very small, the good thing is we had a shallow edge so we weren't continiously swimming, the bad part is the photos they wanted us to buy for around $300 U.S. which we declined of course to their surprise so he...

Our first mistake was booking this through the tour group. We paid $129 each for my parents to have 60 minutes swim with the dolphin, others in the group paid $100. The tour guide said I can see them swim and even take pictures (I just paid the entrance fee of $39). When it comes time to do it, my... More

I actually visted here 2 yrs ago and never got round to doing a review. The reason I wanted to do this review was because I was so impressed with how the dolphins were looked after. I have swam with dolphins 4 times and this was by far the best! We did the trainer for the day programme. We were... More

Always been a dream to swim with dolphins and I wasn't disappointed, the whole experience was magical and the trainers gave us lots of really interesting facts and information about the dolphins. We had the swim and ride package which was really good value for money
