Great show. Very disappointed when it's time to buy pictures most are blurry,out of frame and heads cut off. You have to buy all of the pictures for well over one hundred USA dollars. SO VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THIS.

We had a fantastic family day in the water, interacting with dolphins, an experience we will never forget. The whole set up is efficient and friendly, the photos aren't cheap but who would not want to take the memories home with them, very highly recommended !

Awesome time to go in late winter. We went with our kids (3, 7, 10), but only the 10 yr old loved it. The others were a little too afraid to take advantage. I suggest at least the activity that lets you swim with the dolphin, you get lots of contact, a kiss, dance, swim, petting and splashing. If possible... More

wonderful experience....could have done a better job giving family/friends who are not participating to be able to view the interactions....and it is a huge cash grab but they do a great job and the experience is wonderful....

My husband and I swam, played, and interacted with the dolphins at Delphinus Xcaret while we were on our honeymoon in Mexico. The transportation at our resort was slightly delayed, however Delphinus reimbursed us and we were very pleased. The experience with the dolphins is something we will never forget! The trainers were very knowledgeable and made the experience fun... More

To start with a positive, the actual experience of swimming with a dolphin was incredible. It's obvious the dolphins are well cared for and happy; their enclosure area is quite big and is clean, they are always being fed plenty of fish by the trainers. The basic dolphin swimming package at Xcaret is $99 per person, but we managed to... More
