Amazing experience at the dolphinarium! Resto food is good. Dolphins are amazing, got to see a show and interact with Kiki. Dolphins seems to have lots of space to swim freely and seem to be cared for well. Only minus is the photography! Horrible quality pictures at not so cheap prices for the quality offered, pictures are cut out from... More

We visited the dolphinarium as part of a catamaran day trip from our resort. The lunch at the restaurant was plentiful and delicious; the interaction with the dolphins was special. The dolphins seemed to be well cared for.

I am not a big fan of animals in captivity but since the Dolphinarium was included In our catamaran trip for lunch I went to see the Dolphins. Interesting but I would never pay especially just for a swimming with the Dolphins since I cherish too much nature and freedom.

Went to the Dolphinarium, went in the water on a cement platform up to the thigh area. Pepe our dolphin would swim by and you could pet him, then he would kiss each person and splash and jump. Very smart animals. No cameras allowed in the water. Also watched the dolphin show where 2 dolphins and their trainers danced and... More

This is a short show of about 20 minutes with 3 trainers and two Dolphins. Music great and really added to the atmosphere but a bit too loud for us. Trainers had us dancing as the Dolphins performed various tricks to an appreciative audience. The Dolphinarium also offers swimming with dolphins and a hands on experience with them. The trainers...
