Convenient space where you can enjoy with kids and family on the different activities besides water slides and pools. Dolphin activities are extremely relaxing and satisfying. Good price/performance balance.More

Sounds like most people book once they are there in Puerto Vallarta, and not in advance. Is there potential for better package pricing on the spot? Also, it will be myself, my husband, and our 3 year old and 6 year old. I was told you would need three adults total to do anything more than the Dolphin Encounter with kids of that age, but I'm also reading couples with two young children having done the Swim Adventure or Royal Swim--is this possible?
