We had 4 people in our group and we spent about 1 hr in the water. I am not a very good swimmer, but I can honestly say it was well worth the money. Photo packages are expensive, but you get 3 choices. We didn't take much money with us, but they delivered to our hotel. Seems a very caring,... More

Dolphins are such amazing intelligent creatures. A chance to interact or even touch them felt so heavenly. Our dolphin was a 24 year old female, called Chiche? Umm, I don't remember the name but we felt in love with her, that's for sure. It was a memorable 45 minutes. Delphinus is located inside Xcaret Park so you need to pay... More

We did the Silver experience as a family and really enjoyed the event, we not only swam, touched, stroked, had a foot push ride but also got up close with the trainers and their dolpins on the pontoons to listen to and understand how passionate these trainers were with their animals. It was a bit cheesy in places but overall... More
