The Vallarta staff is fantastic, and works very hard to educate about the animals they care for, as well as provide a "bucket-list" experience for the whole family. For the Dolphin Trainer for a Day program, you may need to call well in advance. The prices are excellent for the experience. They also have professional photographers constantly taking pictures of... More

This water park is certified by the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks and Aquariums for the way they keep and protect their dolphins. This is something good because you know they are taken well care of. Recommended.

Brilliant stay, apart from the hard sunbeds and the predictable food. But these are small things. The drinks are brilliant and the barmaid Theresa is brilliant, worth 5 people. Good trips to Vellarta dnthe Tequilla distillery and the catmaran for snorkelling.Henry and Meriel.
