The park was very nice. They had Dolphins to swim with, as well as Sting Rays and nurse sharks (this was ok, except it is in a shallow swimming pool) The reason why I say minimum of 4 is because they have a tube ride that has to be full to ride it (full is yes you guessed it 4 people). I went with my wife and then had to wait for another couple to finally go down this slide, which was pretty cool. They also have this very high swing drop thing, they lift you up about 60 feet in the air and let you drop, you are tied up in a swing suit of course it looks like fun, but I did not try it mabey next time, which will be this oct 2002. I do recomend this it is fun with a group so this time I am heading there with 6 people, you know to have a couple spares for those who chicken out.

We go there every year we visit Cancun and have always enjoyed it.

I agree that for the first time visitor it is a surprise to find that you have to rent the tubes to use in the lazy river and towels while your in the park. But for the most part I understand, it's either that way or higher entrance fees. Although i think they should publish that in their brochures and such.

The lines to the slides move quick and are well maintained and safe. The big tube ride mentioned in a review before does require 4 people and if your kids are too small to ride it can lend itself to be a disappointment. The Kamakazee slide is a RUSH...... and on the same tower is a 2 person tube ride that snakes left and right and lots of fun to ride. They also have another slide attraction called the "Space Bowl", the boys and I ride that until the point of exhaustion; you enter a tube that is pitch black and right at the end you'll find youself circling around in a bowl, round and round you go until your speed slows enough where you drop out the bottom.

The food court is good for the most part but if you order pizza keep an open mind. It is nothing like what you would expect, needless to say I'll stick with hot dogs.

The kiddie water attraction was very popular with our 1 year old, it was hard to get him to leave that deal. Now that he is 2..... oh boy.

I just completed a trip to Cancun with my 12 yr old daughter (April 07). She really wanted to swim with the dolphins, and I had found the dolphin program at Wet n Wild Cancun on line and was about to book when I happened to read some of the older reviews on this website. It made me not pre-book the activity. Once we were on the ground in Cancun, I drove by the park, and asked several hotel reps about it. Nothing seemed to be wrong with it, so we went ahead and spent the money. Here is what we found. The Dolphin experience which is roughly the same price at 3 different locations in the area, also includes park admission, so along with your dolphin swim, you get a whole day in the park. I bought a general admission ticket for myself.. and it turns out that it included a $10.00 food coupon... so my $39.00 admission was actually only $29.00 if you account for the food included. We'd read that the park was in disrepair, but didn't find that to be the case. Every ride was open.. some other prices.. locker rental is $2.50 with a $5.00US deposit. Ice Cream is $2.00US. You can rent an innertube for the lazy river..but you can also do the lazy river without a tube. Tubes are now provided for the rides that require them.. no additional rental is needed. The two money saving tips I'll pass along are.... Pre-buy your admission ticket from your hotel or somewhere on the strip. by doing this.. you pay about half the walk up price.. and it includes the food coupon. ... and don't plan to purchase anything in the gift shop. swimsuits and t-shirts were roughly twice the price ($72.00US for a child swimsuit) that they were in our hotel gift shop which was already extremely inflated over street pricing. Other then being nervous because of the previous reviews.. our visit really went off without a hitch! We did every ride.. some twice.. it wave very very fun, clean, well run, and the cost seemed very reasonable (especially by US park standards).

This park really doesn’t have much about it, yes there are slides and a large wave pool, but to use the lazy river you have to pay to rent a rubber ring which would be unheard of at a park like this in Orlando (which has far better water rides than this place). If you’re visiting Cancun, this experience really won’t be one of the highlights you’ll talk about to friends back home. As Cancun is a premier holiday destination I expected its only water park to at least be as good as Brits might be used to finding in Spain, like Aqua Park, Aqualand etc etc, but this wasn’t the case. We took the earlier bus back to the hotel.

We come every time we are in Cancun. It never feels crowded. We have done the dolphin swim 3 times and love the lazy River and water slides. Great value. The bartender at the dolphin pool was fabulous!!

A party of 6 of us went to Parque Nizuc for the dolphin trainer for the day all inclusive package, which cost around 185UDS. On entry to the park at 9am, our group were given a free t-shirt and pop/water and cakes to eat before we went to see the dolphins. Our trainer took us in the water in pairs where we got to ask the dolphin to perform requests, if he completed it correctly, he would get a fish. After this, we were shown some dolphins who were pregnant or had recently given birth. The baby dolphins were really cute and were trying to do jumps. We spent more time in the water with dolphins afterwards then had lunch. You could chose from 4 options, I chose a cheeseburger, which was very big and included fries and a salad and a massive drink.
We then had an hour to go on the various water slides or in the pools. We had more interaction with the dolphins after lunch and were shown where all the fish are prepared and the trainer office then we got in a pool next to the sea lion enclosure and a gigantic male sea lion was brought out and we all got a kiss from him and to hold him. A female sea lion then showed us some tricks too.
Lastly, we went back to the dolphins and got a dorsalfin pull, foot push, kisses and they were photographed and videoed. We bought the dvd for 33USD and you get 3 free photographs and only have to pay for the kiss one if you want. I would really recommend this trip.

Were took our two children ages 7 and 8 to this park on the recomendation of our tour representative. To be fair, the kids loved swimming with the dolphins, but they would have enjoyed that no matter what. The park was seriously understaffed, with one poor guy running from the snack bar to the rental desk and back again. We were not aware that outside food and drinks were forbiddedn, so the food and beveridges we brought were kept and we only got them back when we left. This was a problem because one of our kids has food allergies but no amount of explaining could change the minds of the park employees.
As far as the dolphin swim, everything they did was geared to trying to get more money out of you by selling you back a cheesy video and pictures of your swim. The water was very cold, and the kids had to get out before it was done. The waterpark was okay, but it is only a waterpark and it alone hardly justifies the cost of entry.
We should have spent the few extra dollars and gone to Xcaret, at least we would have had a better park to hang around after the dolphin show.

I applied for this tour with the intention to swimming soley with Dolphins. The whole Dolphin experience last approxiamately and hour and a half. Once we finished we were then granted full access to the whole water park for the remainder of the day.

The Dolphin Swim is an out of this world experience - one which I am so pleased to be able to say I have done...and the video that you can buy for 30 dollars at the end of the day is well worth the money for an amazing piece of memrobelia.

Excellent Day Out

The dolphin swimming was a great time. There are some hidden charges for Wet n' Wild, you pay the entrance fee but you also have to rent the tubes to go on the rides. So your fee to enter the park doesn't take care of that. I wish I would of known that earlier. Great place, but bring some extra money for deposits also.

It starts by accessing the parking lot through the exit (there is no "Entrance" sign.

If you are a local, you stand in a line where the sign actually says you and your kids go in free...while no one could possibly believe this, they should at least put the price of entry on the sign.

Once I got in, it took them 20 minutes to go find a box of park guides...

If you have small kids, this isn't the place to go. They obviously can't get on the big slides. Even for adults, I saw a lady fall about 3 steps on the steps leading to the highest water slide. The wave pool is ok, buy very slippery where you get in. Tiles are not well grouted, so watch out for cutting your feet. Get this, the "Activity Pool", for which a sign says it is for all to enjoy, if you go in it you will have 2 life guards bark at you to get out because that water is later used for the dolphins! Finally, at the kiddie pool, they have the music so loud, that if anyone cried "help" there would be absolutely no way one could here their child.

Misleading signs, lack of correct information on those that do exist, and pretty shoddy maintenance (when going up to access the bigger water slides, don't look up to see the busted and rusted pipe holders).
