They are just amazing and you cannot imagine how intelligent they are. The royal swim is very expensive but I don't regret paying it. It is really impressive. We swam and we did different exercises with two of the female dolpnihs. I didn't want to go out. I liked them very much. Our coach Pamela was also very nice.

Bucket list check!! Adrian was fantastic to work with to ensure that we had the best possible experience. He was able to keep us in a small group of four and ensured that we had a true experience of actually swimming with the dolphins, not just standing in a row on a platform. Carla, the dolphin trainer was awesome, both... More

We had a group of 5-2 adults and 3 kids (one was 5y old). There was a 'special' for the day for $100, we got to have time with the manatees, sea lion and dolphin. This was perfect for our group (kids are 10,9,5). We paid $100 each and the 5y was free, since a paying adult had to be... More

The trainers were talented and seemed to love what they do. However, you are not allowed to bring your cameras into any of the areas (we even had a special underwater one for the occasion). We didn't even want many of the photos taken by the "official photo team" but the lowest price they could do was $130 for the... More

A must visit whilst in Mexico and you're not short of destination. Personally I picked this venue because it seemed the most natural setting and I thought that would look best on the photographs. Speaking of which, let's get that subject out of the way, yes they're expensive!! No getting away from that, even after haggling for the usb including... More
