they use the ocean as the main attraction and charge you for it, it does what it says but not for us, if the cruise ships are in it will be so busy, did not like the Dolphins in sea water tanks, it looked like a $$ machine to extract $ with the use of Dolphins, other facilites OK but... More

There is a lot of great things to say about this place, and some of the interactions that are available are once in a lifetime opportunities. My wife and I visited for her birthday, and we went for the Royal swim with the dolphins, the swam with manatees, and we had an encounter with sea lions. There are several activities... More

Cozumel is beautiful and there are lots of things to do... This park, however is the way to go if you want peace and quiet, a beautiful beach with palapas, a drink in hand, access to a swimming pool, shopping and food... Best snorkeling in Cozumel!

A wonderful experience, but can be very pricy so be careful. We swam with dolphins and played with a manatee. My daughter (she's 7) did just fine and she loved it. We paid around $130 each for the experience which was worth it, BUT they wanted $80 PER PERSON for pictures and they won't let you bring your own camera.... More

We had an amazing time here! We swam with dolphins which had always been my dream. We did the highest package which included two dolphins, definitely worth it! You can purchase pictures or a CD afterward with pictures, it was much more expensive than I thought though. We also did a free tequila tasting which was very delicious and were... More

The park was nice enough, but the beach (or, the sand anyway) doesn't quite go to the water. The sand ends at some rock steps, on which one has to climb down into the water. I could imagine how this would be treacherous for some; water shoes are highly recommended. Small children, and/or those who aren't strong swimmers, may not... More

Entrance fee is nominal. Was able to find a chaise on the beach under a thatched roof hut. Very nice. Sand is white and fine but has rock, shell, etc...Cannot go barefoot. Getting into the water is tricky as the beach is a rock cliff. Must go down a flight of stairs. Once at the bottom, water is very deep.... More

Along with snorkeling and a fabulous beach, we got to swim with manatees. It was by far one of the best experiences that we have had on vacation. They also had a "swim with the dolphins" experience, but my kids had already done that and both said that the manatees was a better experience. The food was good, service was... More

We went on the Swim Adventure. We took the first appointment at 9:30 AM, which was terrific because the cruise ship people hadn't arrived yet and we had 2 dolphins just to the 4 of us. We had done a dolphin experience in Curacao, but this swim was $40 less! It also included a park, beach, pool, sea lion show... More
