We went there while on a cruise stop and found it to be a great park. The shows are excellent and the park is beautifully kept. If you find yourself in Puertpm Plata for a day, you can’t go wrong here.

My husband and son enjoyed everything - the shows, the animal exhibits and most of all the swim with the well-trained dolphins.

We went and although it was small it was fun and educational. The food there was amazing but you pay extra for it. 20 bucks for a framed pic with one of the dolphins( who was quite friendly and even pretended to "sneeze").

We had no problems at all in any area of the park using our cell phone cameras. We had a phone each for a total of 4 phones. No one said anything to us. Click away. Have fun

Taxi, Laundry and cab fares Is there a taxi stand close to Hacienda Beach resort and Spa? Is there a laundry place close to Hacienda? What will be taxi fares to the following places from Hacienda? cable car ,Open market, Haitian Village, Ocean World Adventure Park and Sosua . What is Bravissimo Show? I heard you can hire local taxi for a day for $25. Is that true? Appreciate feed back.

I don't know about laundry service but cabs are more expensive then you are thinking. To Puerto plata (cable car, hatian village, open market etc) all will be about $15-20 each way. To sosua about $35. To hire the cab for the day will depend somewhat on where you are going, but plan on $100-150 a day. For some of your local trips you might consider a gua-gua (local van) or publico (public taxi wiht up to 7 passangers) at about $1 a trip. BObK

is this the only place to swim with dolphins or is there a more natural place? my fiance doesnt really want to see them in small cages/pools and would like to see dolphins in there natural habitat. also we are staying at the ambar hotel in punta cana - she read a review saying there is a monkey near the pool but people shout at it - is it looked after? thanks

Hi As far as I am aware all the dolphin swims in PC are captive swims. Even if they are in the larger pools they are still in captivity and not free When we were in PC recently we were lucky enough to see manta rays swim past our villa at Sanctuary Cap Cana on a couple of occasions and it was just amazing to see them in their natural habitat

Note: Not enough space in the Subject but I meant other than beaches and malls. Hello, So I have been researching things to do and see all over DR and it seems there are some interesting places to visit in PC. However, I feel so disappointed that none of those places can be visited by independent travelers without a tour. We will have a rental car and we are a family of four. Paying ridiculous amount of like $65 / pp is totally not what we want to do. Why PC is so commercialized? Even in...More
