Despite calling ahead twice, we were sorely mislead. My friends and I (including a Venezuelan friend) called ahead to pre-arrange a time to swim with dolphins. We were assured that because it was the elections time, that we had no need for an appointment. We got the price for a half hour swim, thanked them, and said that we would... More

You don't have to know how to swim to do it. And it's very pleasant get int touch with this amazing animals and once you're in the water it gets magical.

This was a really nice experience! Well organized and rhe memories are pricełess!! Make reservations ahead of time using their web page and be there an hour before your scheduled time! Pay the little extra to do the swimming instead of just encounter. It is worthy!!!

Really nice experience plus the trainers and employees really make you feel comfortable providing information and all equipment necessary. I really had a great time, it was my first experience, it's an old place that needs to be painted and other little things but other than everything was really awesome!

Any such park should be avoided, it is ALWAYS harmful for the animals kept, no matter how much effort people put into the park. And Venezuelans are not known for taking care of their animals.... or humans...
