excellent experience for us and a little 4 year old girl who loved every minute. We asked at the ticket desk how much the photos will be once we have finished our swim with the dolphins and on two occasions we were told not to worry and that everything will be explained when we go in. The swim itself was... More

The trainers were awesome. Dolphins were extremely well trained and wonderful creatures. I cannot swim, but the experience was still awesome. You have life vests so it all works out fine for non swimmers. The pictures are very pricey though! NEGOTIATE PEOPLE!! Get in a group and split the costs of one flash drive of pictures, then negotiate the price.... More

My boyfriend & I booked this excursion, via a small stall with a man named David Gomez in the Playacar resort - we got a fantastic deal, 4000 peso (roughly £150) for both of us to do the dolphin swim package with the small group of 4 people (the Thompson package was $219 American dollars PER PERSON!) - I'd highly...

The interaction with the dolphins where great. My child and niece will remember this for life. The trainers masters the dolphins awesomely, we were pushed around the pool as we were surfing with a boogie board. Great experience for every one but very expensive photos and videos at the end of the activity was offered.

My boy friend and I were put together in a group with another couple which I thought was fine to do the group related dolphin activities ,but I later felt it was unfair we had to wait until they were done playing with the dolphin while our clock was ticking away. When it was our turn, they didn't give us... More

We had a perfect experience at Delphinus Riviera Maya. The swimming with the dolphins was amazing. We got the private experience and interacted with a female dolphin in more than 7 behaviors, including being pushed by two dolphins. The trainer was so great and demonstrated domain about his job. I highly recommend this attraction, it was an unforgettable experience. The... More

Me and my partner have just got back from Mexico and we paid for the single person swim with dolphins. We used our resort credit to pay for this trip, therefore we didn't pay as much as some. Always check at your hotel to see if you have resort credit as you only need to pay 20% tax to use... More

Pablo and the others I am bad with names were great there was a little boy in our group that was scared and they worked well with him while still taking care of the rest of us. I would recommend this for anyone... More
