Went with my daughter and grand daughter and it was a full and fun day :) They laughed and screamed while going down fast winding water slides, while I, a chicken, waited at the bottom of the slides watching the expressions on their faces :) We floated on inner tubes along the lazy river, trying to push each other under the overhead water jets hehe. There are various shows you can watch too, like Sea Lion Show and Dolphin show. This is where you can also swim with dolphins (must book and discount for booking ahead online). It was a wonderful experience! You get to the touch and stroke the dolphins and best of all swim with them :) The dolphins lie on their back and you hold onto their fins and they swim you along, also you lie on a boogie board and they push the bottom of your feet with their noses, and what speed!! Unfortunately you are not allowed to take photo's but there is a photographer who takes pics of you and you can purchase at the end. Ticket admittance includes a snack and drink, just basic but enough. There are free lockers to store your gear but if wanting a towel you must hire them. It's cheaper to pay in Mexican money than US. I'd recommend this for families.

They had the nerve to open up after a rain storm and not tell anyone .We bought the tickets for 5 and when we got to the park the water was brown .This place is not maintained at all The whole family got blue chips of paint on their face and in te hair because this place is falling apart. The manager aftr an hour was asked if a refund was possible and laughed to another guy in the customer service office. The manager was a short fat guy wearing a while shirt. Peope save your money I wouldnt walk my dog in this park if it was for free Beware: Save your money
Happy Vacationing :)

Nothing compared to atlantis or disney park but if your kids are under 15 years of age, they will love it!

“Depends on age of your kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Our group had 2, 4, 5, and 6 year olds. The shallow area was great for the 2-5 year olds but the 6 year old was ready for more. However, due to age and weight restrictions, it was very limiting. For example, if over 156 pounds, you couldn't go on about 1/3 of the slides. And if younger than 7 or 10, you couldn't go on about 2/3 of the slides. The park overall seemed a little old and outdated. A few of the slides weren't even operating. I believe it's $25 entry fee but you can work with your hotel concierge to work you a deal. We were able to get a few passes for $9 entry fee.
