While staying in a condo in Puerto Aventuras it was almost impossible to not walk by the dolphins every day. We weren't planning on doing a swim with them but after 5 days of our girls seeing them and begging to swim with them, we gave in. The staff was very professional and knowledgeable. We got some amazing pictures and... More

Got to see what dolphins were about first hand. Great learning experience. They took a lot of pictures which were nice. They were pricey though.

The whole dolphin experience was indeed one of its kind and worth while. My kid and I went for the basic Intro package- that had the handshake and kiss and touch the dolphin. My kid did enjoy it. My husband took the Royal swim package and thoroughly enjoyed the foot push and swim. The setup is nice and quiet. The... More

Brilliant to be able to watch the dolphins interact with the paying guests. A lot cheaper to interact with the dolphins than Florida , spending more time with them in the water

We just spent two great weeks in Puerto Aventuras. One of our favorite breakfast places to go was The Manatee. Our favorite waiters Rene and Graciano made everything the best. We usually ordered off the menu, everything was fresh and very tasty. They also have a wonderful buffet that also is very very good. Last year we spent Super Bowl... More

Dolphins appear quite happy, content and well fed. Entertaining to say the least and we enjoyed the daily educational display. People who swam with the dolphins seemed to have a great time and the staff was very good.

The experience was as such that the different age children could do as much or as little with the activity. The guides made sure to explain the whole event. they did very well.
