Had an excellent day with Andre as our trainer. We bought the Trainer for a Day package, as a couple, and I am not exaggerating when I say we were with the dolphins from 11 am till 4 pm with short breaks in between. It was so worthwhile, just for the foot push alone, and the photos we bought were... More

The dive with the dolphins was great, but they take advantage of this unique moment to exploit people. At the end of the dive, when you think you have the record of this moment, they assail you: $ 39 for a photo, $ 179 for 12 photos and $ 220 for all the photos, while the dive is $ 79.... More

This would be a 5 (was our unanimous fav trip) if not a bit disappointed by the video ( read below). Family of 4 booked via Thomson on silver package. Lots of time with dolphins (about an hour in the water), staff superb and the foot push a real treat. If you ever fancied this, Delphinus are fab. The photo... More

We came here on our honeymoon and paid a bit extra for the silver package. It was well worth it. We spent an hour in the water with a dolphin my husband and I.it was a magical experience. Loved every minute. I would defos recommend. The dolphins are very well looked after.

Let me start off by saying the Primax package is amazing. The dolphins are phenomenal, the trainers are very knowledgeable and caring, but the photograph package was excessively expensive! We arrived at the lagoon during a rainstorm and when there was a break in the clouds we entered the lagoon to swim with the dolphins. Once on the dock we... More

We did the couples dream swim at Xcaret (not in the park we came through a separate way just for the dolphins). The swim was great, our dolphin was very nice and looked happy. All the dolphins were given great care (our swim was stopped to make sure our dolphin got medical care for a small injury she had on... More

We had a great time; the Dolphins and trainers were truly amazing. The Dolphins are clearly very well looked after and from their behaviour you can see how happy and relaxed they are. We picked this complex after seeing just how much better their large natural pools were compared to some of the other swimming pool style ones in the... More

The price is unbelievably high. I bought it in my resort (Grand Mayan Riviera Maya) and they charged me supposedly 169 USD with rate 13.3 and refunded 40 USD after visit at rate of 11USD. So, the price was not as p[promised 139 USD considering difference in exchange rate. Delphinus Xcaret personnel keeps observers so far from where your relatives... More

Great experience but totally over priced and they then try to make more money out of you by charging an absolute fortune for the pictures.I think the basic picture package started at $160 US dollars. The dolphins were great and we had a lovely time but just felt a bit ripped off by the whole experience!
