The least expensive trip you can take but it was fun. There is a dolphin, seal and sea lion show, a horse show and a bird show.

We needed a break from the resort so we took our son to Manti Park for the day. It was such a great experience. We saw a Dolphin Show, which you don't see that anywhere in the US anymore, a sea lion show, a parrot show and a horse show. They also have a Taino village where you can learn... More

Unfortunately, during the swimming with the dolphins, which is the main attraction, they put you in the back side making it impossible to get good pictures. But that's the least of the problems.
