A group of us went while visiting Mexico and we loved it. The dolphins are so friendly. The short trip to the park was great and once inside it was an easy process. The staff tell you everything you need to know and the trainers are wonderful. The trainers make sure everyone has time with the Dolphins and the pictures... More

KIds loved it. Clean and if you book online in advance you can get good deals and even get better deals on picture packages. Don't book through hotel or wait till you get there.

Harry and Schnook were great! Harry was super informative and Schnook was such a great dolphin and had a great temperament. We did the Couples Experience and it was well worth the money! Didn't have to share and felt like we had plenty of time with Schnook. Would definitely go back again if in the area!

My husband and I both swam with the dolphins for the first time at Dolphinaris. The building itself is pretty nice, the bathrooms could use some maintenance as some of the stall doors didn't open and some toilets didn't have any seats on them. The trainers were nice and dolphins were mostly in good appearance. We had a promo code... More

The experience was average. A lot of money for a small amount of time in the water with the dolphins. They divided you into groups and I have to say they do not consider what language you speak. My husband and myself or the only English speaking in a group so it was very hard to interact with others as... More
