“Snorkling Day”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is a great eco water park! There is much to do that is included in your admission and many other things you can add for a little extra. It is a great place for all who can swim as most activities are in the water. The buffet and lounge were great as well.

“Good fun for the family”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We loved the activities with the dolphins and the sea aquarium. The boat ride on the so called river was a waste of time.

“Extraordinary, great option to spend a all day.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

At first, when I pay for the entrance (87 USD pp/ 64 USD buying beforehand), thought it was pricey, but at the end of the day, it worth every penny. Great park to spend a all day with friends or family,and yet a day wouldn't be enough to see all it has to offer. Imperative to arrive light, with few clothes and comfortable shoes because you'll walk a lot. If you have little kids or go with a lot of stuff, the best option is to bring or to rent a baby's car at the entrance of the park. All the facilities are clean and well organized, with several places to change clothes and lockerrooms. All people are very nice and approachable. I'll bring my own snorkel gear. Food is good and not pricey. The best: night show and facilities, The bad: The crowding in some atractions.

“Fantastic day above ground and underground”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

This is a great value day out. The underground river swimming is fantastic.
Get a package which includes the hire of towels and snorkelling equipment and the inclusive lunch. We arrived about 1000 and it was quite busy, everyone heads for the river swim first, which is much needed on a hot day.
Your swim ends by the beach. You can snorkel, relax on the beautiful beaches, visit the aquarium and see the animal life at the park. We chose the mexican restaurant for an all-inclusive lunch and it was pretty good.
Make sure you take the 360 degree tower for great views of the area.
We went back to do another river swim at 1600 and it we were the only people in the water.
A great day!
