It was an entertaining opportunity for my son (5 yrs old). Initially, my plan was to take my daughter (3 yrs old), but she got scared after putting the life jacket on and started screaming to get out. At the last moment (5 min before the scheduled start time), they allowed us to switch the kids. My son had plenty... More

Amazing! Doesn't need any other words really! I love the fact that there is a clear ecological and conservationists programme here too. Transport staff and staff onsite were brilliant!

After having one disappointing out at a different dolphin park we talked to the staff here and we are very glad we did. It was great experience having the dolphins actually swim with us and to be able to touch them when we wanted, not when a trainer gave permission.

It felt like paparazzi. Constantly posing for the camera and less about the experience. The worst part of it, we decided to give into the tourist picture trap and purchase the photo package that was advertised to include ALL photos from the experience. Our package was missing half of our photos, even though we were assured they would all be... More

My wife and I enjoyed a belated honeymoon, staying at the Hard Rock Riviera Maya (It rocks!) and our vacation planning expert Luis set us up with an awesome couples swim with the dolphins. It was the highlight of our trip. We could not get the smiles off of our faces. Of course we had to buy the video and... More

We did the Primax swim which was a great experience. We were in a small group of 6 and got lots of interaction with the Dolphin over a 50 minute period. The trainer Bernice was very friendly and excellent with the dolphin. The Primax is worth doing for the few quid extra as the dolphin foot push at the end... More
