Fantastic experience Booked a private session for the 4 of us The Dolphins are well looked after and appear extremely happy, especially as you get into the water with them. If they wanted they can leave at any time as they are in sections with gates or low sides that can easily be jumped. 1 of the dolphins did actually... More

We had the best time seeing the dolphins, sadly they were refurbishing the actual park so we didn't see the sealions etc but we did spend a lot of time in the water with the dolphins and loved every minute of it. We visited as part of a catamaran snorkeling trip which was fantastic also.

Have visited this fantastic park over the past 9 years and we are still impressed by it. Horse riding takes place over a number of routes, all with a knowledgable guide, usually within small groups (sometimes just the two of us) and with quite incredible views, especially from the mountain paths. There is a range of fishing, either among the... More

While in Holguin, do not miss swimming with the dolphins (great for kids!) even considering the premium price, about $75 per person. Touch these cetaceans, they are intelligent mammals (like you and me). If you have a philosophical objection to animal exploitation, consider this an information module. Do not think of it as supporting an evil tourist enterprise; it is... More

Took my daughter and it was fantastic they brought her and the other kids and parents to another pool to meet Brenda the dolphin. Was fantastic but they never mentioned if you want the dolphin to do tricks with your kids for extra money at the time. I found this out after we had already returned, was a little disappointed....

Dolphins really are magical and the ones here were in excellent condition and seemed genuinely happy. The staff were extremely knowledgable and great with the Dolphins and visitors. It was so nice for the staff to take pictures and videos of us with the Dolphins with our own cameras at no extra cost. I was happy to give them a... More

We've just got back after getting married in Cuba but that's another story. 7 of us booked through our tour reps (Thomas Cook - UK) for the 'Dine with Dolphins' trip. Having read a couple of other reviews if you have the swim with or Dine with options choose the latter (It's 10CUC more). The trip was 99CUC for adults... More

I paid 75 CUC to float in a life jacket with two dolphins and about 12 other people. My husband who did not participate paid 39 CUC just so he could come with me, I didn't want to venture off the resort on my own. The lunch provided, was a piece of ham and cheese on bread. I felt this... More

My Mum and I came here as part of a girly day trip. It's such a beautiful place, serene, clean & obviously all the staff care deeply for the animals. With no hint of commercialism. Having swum with dolphins before, I was keen for my Mum to experience the grace of these amazing creatures. She's not a strong swimmer &... More
