Let me start by saying that I did have a good time, and I chose this location because Delphinus is part of the Alliance of Marine Mammal Parks & Aquariums. It was important that if I were going to do a dolphin experience, that I feel the location actually takes care of its animals. My friend and I did a... More

We bought our tickets directly at Delphinus. Firstly, they put us in a BIGGER group of people than we paid for. This means we could have paid less if we knew they're gonna do that. We complained about it before and after the time spent with the dolphins, but they ignored us and said they do not do refund. Then... More

We throughly enjoyed our experience with the Dolphins and staff at Delphinus at the xcaret adventure park. The staff were knowledgable and friendly. It was a once in a lifetime experience. One that my family will never forget. But the xcaret adventure park where this is situated in was a disaster from start to finish where their main goal was... More

So Ill admit we got the tickets to swim with the dolphins by going through this sales pitch for a timeshare but it was well worth sitting through 2 hours in the hot sun having someone try to sell us a hotel suite because we got to Delphinus and after letting them know that I was a swimmer and a...

Loved being with the dolphins, did not appreciate the $40 a pic price tag at the end. Opted to pass all together since the photographer didnt take one with myself and my husband together...paid $300 for our tix as it was! I will swim with the dolphins again but unlikely to repeat it there for that reason.

In general when you go to Mexico expect to be ripped off or cheated at every point but here they doubled down from the sales pitch to the guys that ask us to just give them cash and not report it two charging us $160 for four photos I would definitely not recommend it it's definitely not worth the price

Highly highly recommend - great staff and the most beautiful facility and area. We did the couples experience so only 4 adults and 2 dolphins. Unbelievable how great this was...My wife is still smiling....and we would go back again. You are in the ocean in areas that make you feel like such a natural habitat...Dolphins very well taken care of... More
