Such an amazing experience... Definitely something you must do with your family when you are vacationing in Cuba! Lobster lunch was amazing... Althought the chicken lunch could use a little work... But great experience!

Never did we think that we could get so close to these wonderful creatures...to touch them, to interact with them...what a fantastic experience! Even for our very reluctant teen who is not very fond of the outdoors. He had a blast and I think he may have cracked a smile or two! Highly recommended, fun filled and memorable experience for...

Dolphins are smart mamals. Just an amazing experience to spend time with KIKI in the water. Although he was older, he was kind, gentle and loving. Made the vacation that much more memorable.

The dolphinarium was part of our catamaran tour. The dolphin experience was nicer than most, because you are just petting the dolphin rather than them being forced to push you around. Also less of your body is submerged, thus less sunscreens and other oils are being put in the water that the dolphins are living in. I did not like... More
