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!

Swimming with the dolphins was a great experience and I would advise strongly to buy your photos before you go there! We paid £80 each (my friend and I) for return transportation from our hotel, swimming with dolphins which included entrance to the water park, food and drink and 8 photos on a disk and one printed photo. Which was... More

Booked online via a chat link. You will get a great price this way if you ask. Enjoyed the experience but for those that don't go in the water take a camera with zoom and take pictures using your own camera from the balcony. Their pictures are ridiculously priced. Also had access into Wet n Wild which was very quiet.... More

It was nine to see the dolphin, and did all the crazy poses with dolphin. After all said and done, we realized each paper picture costs $29. Crazy expensive! I wonder if how much this goes to the care of dolphins. We did not do riding on the dolphins, it is just mean!

The trainer for the day experience was fantastic. I highly recommend this over the standard experience. Edgar and his crew work with you throughout the day and go above and beyond what I thought they would do. Why only 4 stars? The Dolphinaris people forgot to pick us up in the morning after confirming the day before. The front office... More

Was able to meet and swim with 2 dolphins. Trainers were very informative and you gained entry into waterpark. Waterpark was clean and no lines at all. Only downside was the price for the pictures to be saved on a CD not even to print thats way more but I did buy the cd because I wanted to save those... More

The staff was amazing and helpful. We were in a pool with about 8 other people. Two instructors/guides and 2 dolphins. We were able to touch the dolphins. We gave simple commands such as hello and we were able to kiss them and have them kiss you. Beautiful experience.

One of my greatest memories was swimming with the dolphins. If you're looking this experience on a low budget, here you can do it and in some Resorts like Palace Resorts you can do it using your resort credit.
