Unbelievable interactive experience! Petting, foot push, swim, tricks, teeth brushing... Would go again and again. Purchase tickets at the park and save a $30. broker fee.

This was a fun activity, and they treat their dolphins much better than in other places in Cancun, they have a much bigger living and playing area, and the staff has a more animal friendly attitute.

This is the only reason we went to Xcaret. We had a memorable experience and it's clear that the staff and trainers care very much for the dolphins. Our experience (max 4 people, 45 mins) was worth the money as I got an online deal. What does let it down is the rip-off prices for photos and a video. £70... More

My daughter and I participated in the dolphin encounter at Xcaret a few days ago. We did the longer, more expensive encounter where you are in the water with them for 45 min and you get the foot push experience as well. Once we were in the water, it was pretty chaotic. There were several other groups of people doing... More

We had a quick ride from Hardrock Riviera Maya. It was a beautiful day. The Dolphin adventure was perfect. We did the upgrade where we were in a group of 4. We got to do many activities with the Dolphins. Lots of video and pictures were taken. Activities like these are all about making memories. We had lots of memories... More

We have visited this place two times- in January 2015 and in August 2016. We have purchased the most expensive package for my husband, me and our 5 year old (including video and photos). Show is well done and dynamic. We all loved it. On our wayback, in 2015 we have picked up our video and photo materials just to... More

We visited as a family of 4, our children are 6yrs and 7yrs. We did the 'Boogie Surf' package and our dolphin handler was Juan Jose and he was great. We were with Luana the dolphin and she was really lovely. The place is laid out well with toilets, showers and lockers available. We wore long sleeve rashies and were... More

We decided to pay a little more for the couples only swim due to it being our honeymoon. The swim was amazing and the trainer (Maria), was fantastic. The experience was great and due to us having the full 45mins on our own we were able to have more interaction with the dolphin. Can't fault the swim at all. However...the... More

It cost us more to remember the experience than it did to actually swim with the Dolphins which isthmian reason I would give this one star. Swimming with the actual dolphin was a dream come true for me, although it's sad to know they are in captivity but I mean being so close to such a beautiful love animal was... More
