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!

Myself and my good lady went swimming with the dolphins last Friday. What an experience... I can't describe how exhilarating it was touching them and having a foot push. I'd definitely do this again.

Spent an hour or so interacting with Sofia, a beautiful 20 month old bottlenose dolphin with a gorgeous smile :) Considering the bucket list status that this has for many people, it was money well spent. One point to consider is that you cannot take your own photos but need to buy theirs.

Woest experience ever planned this trip for me and my fiance and was told noo phones or cameras inside. We enjoyed every experience with the dolphins until it came time to purchase the pictures. They wanted to us to pay an additional 365 for pictures on top of the 160 we paid up front. I was very disappointed because it... More

I've now done 2 dolphin interaction programs and this one was good, but it felt a bit cramped in the set up. The facilities look well kept, but it seems a bit on the small end for these beautiful dolphins. My major complaint is how expensive the pictures are and you don't really get that many. My friend and I... More

It was an awesome experience to be able to interact with these gentle creatures! The staff was very pleasant and answered any questions about the Dolphins that we had. We got to do a couple of tricks with them, and hang on to them while they swam from one end of the pool the other! One of the dolphins just... More

Very expensive to swim with the dolphins, no picture taking - you have to buy theirs. Spent more time waiting. It was a cool experience, but won't do it again.
