For sure I've visited more than 30 dolphin places worldwide, be that the water aquariums, shows, encounters to swim with them, etc... By far this is the worst one. On a limited land stretch they built this dolphins bathtub (speaking from dolphins point of view), as they had to leave more space for the big pool and bars around to gain more tourist money. From the prisoners point of view (again dolphins) it's not only the captivity, but it rather refers to solitary confinement - the pool is so small and shallow for this lively and fast mammals, and worse than that water was brownish, seemed so dirty. Like everything else in port of Costa Maya, this business is oriented to collect cruise passenger's easy money, so think twice before you become a part of this animal abuse. Go instead to explore the terrific Chacchoben ruins or kayak at Bacalar lagoon, there are so many better places than this one. If you're for dolphin encounters and swims, there are many places you can enjoy this in a more human way for them.

I have seen many dolphins in captivity and this was the absolute worst! The tank is a small concrete pool right next to the ocean. It is incredibly small and my jaw dropped when I saw how dirty the water was. The absolute worst conditions I’ve seen dolphins in. If you want to swim with dolphins DON’T DO IT HERE!!! Please don’t support this terrible place.

We took our two young kids (8 & 6) recently for the dolphin encounter. We didn’t do the swim since we were worried about the kids being big enough. Watching the other groups we made the right decision for our kids. Simple and fun trip. Individual’s each got their own encounter as part of a larger group (9 people). Was a long time in cool ocean water for our young kids who were shivering by the end. Free lockers were provided. Hug, kiss, pet and high five the dolphins.
