Worlds' best dolphinariums !Dolphinaris . . . A place for you. A place for them. If you’re looking for the best place to swim with dolphins in Cancun this is the right place for you!At Dolphinaris, we provide people of all ages the opportunity to make their dreams come true. We see the evidence of this every day as we watch the faces of our guests when they meet one of our dolphins for the very first time.Located next to, but not part of the water park Wet ´n Wild and easy to get to with public transportation Dolphinaris is the best attraction for swimming with dolphins in Cancun! * We are a multimillion-dollar investment and the most advanced dolphinariums in Mexico, only in some places in the U.S.A. have the same technology we have, providing you the best quality in all aspects unlike other dolphinariums that only use a simple fishing net at the sea beach, where in addition to swimming with dolphins, you swim with algae, waves, ocean currents, ship oil and gas, you also swims with the dolphins waste, exposing you to severe skin or vital organs infections. Avoid all that... next time choose dolphinaris!

It was such a great experience, but I wish we got more time to spend in the water. For the price we paid, you would think we would get more time to interact and have a free swim with the dolphins. The experience didn't really match the description. However, we had a blast and it was a good time!

My husband and kids really enjoyed it. I am afraid of animals so just watched but even as an onlooker I enjoyed it too. The centre was well organised with times to visit the dolphins towels food and drink lockers etc. I would definitely recommend this as a trip.

We had resort credits so it helped out pricing out a lot. I am not sure how it rates to others but lets face it, this is a bucket list item that has to be done at some point. They will gouge you on the pictures, but it has be done somewhere this is really good and close in Cancun!

We've done a couple of dolphin swims before so we really weren't too excited about doing it again, but decided to go because our six grandchildren were going. Great decision! It was by far our best dolphin encounter. The other adults in our group agreed. It was their best encounter also. Daphne was our trainer and she was wonderful with... More

wonderful time with Dolphin but the trainer I had wasn't friendly. My swimming skill may not be as good as the other visitors that he had and perhaps I may ask more questions than other people. He had delayed some of the interactions that I should have with the Dolphin. When I asked him, he would say " if you... More

The swimming with the dolphins is nice. But you have to be careful because if you don't ask the right question you get cheated out of a nice experience. We paid for the interactive and thought that, that included everything but to our surprise it doesn't. Interactive only includes petting the dolphin and a kiss. We had to pay extra... More

Brilliant day with the Dolphins. Was such an experience, especially when the Dolphins lift you up in the air. Great day out.
