For months, we researched numerous options for our "Once-in-a-Lifetime/Much-Anticipated" Dolphin Experiences before taking our cruise, and I must admit, I was still nervous up until we arrived to our last port and Dolphinaris Cozumel as to whether or not I had chosen the right place. However, without a doubt, our Dolphin Swim and Ride with Unlimited Food and Drink Excursion not only met, but surpassed our very high expectations!!! Dolphin Trainer Fabiola was kind, attentive, patient, clear and informative every step of the way. She was truly an inspiration for my eleven-year-old daughter who is even more convinced today that she will someday be a dolphin trainer. Our group of eight was the perfect size and we enjoyed, no only our own, personal dolphin interactions but those of all the participants in our group. We were already aware (thanks to Trip Advisor reviews) of the high cost of photos, not only at Dolphinaris, but at ALL Dolphin-Experience sites, and, to be honest, we had promised ourselves NOT to purchase any of the photos. However, after such an amazing life experience, and the interesting package of incredible photos they offered us including the DVD, we couldn't resist a small package and decided to consider it part of the cost of the whole, unforgettable experience. We were, however, disappointed not to find the dolphin kisses on the DVD, although the dolphin hugs and belly rides were included for all 8 participants as well as some extra on-site footage of the beautiful location and the playful dolphins. In addition to the dolphins, we enjoyed the included buffet and, as the only vegetarian in the family, I was also able to find a variety of options. We were surprised by the unlimited, open bar, and although we are not big drinkers, I can recommend the lemon margaritas!!! Our children also enjoyed the Virgin Strawberry Margaritas. We were able to snorkel with giant stingrays and other amazing sea life without an additional cost. Other boating (kayaks and paddle boards) options were available, and those who participated seemed to enjoy. All of the staff was friendly, helpful, and accessible. The environment is clean and Caribbean beautiful, with the open sea just beyond the very natural-looking dolphin pools. We even had time to get back and do a little shopping in the great port of Cozumel before re-boarding our ship. A very special thank you to Fabiola, Atlas, Golden Boy and all of the staff and wildlife at Dolphinaris Cozumel for helping to make our dream come true! We will never forget you!
