  • Enjoyed the dolphin show and a lovely lunch at the Dolphinarium Cayo Santa Maria. Also saw a very large sea lion asleep on the side of the pool at the Dolphinarium. Washrooms were lovely and clean. Wo...  more »
  • To begin with, that there is something to compare. Were in the Dolphinarium in the Dominican Republic, this is Earth and sky! Pay for two €178 to swim in the stinking water with opaque obodrannym Dolphin Valley! In the Dominican Republic for the money I swam in the clear ocean water not only with the dolphins, but also with the sharks. And we had dinner on the island with coconuts and huge whole lobster with drinks all inclusive! Here you can enjoy everything too, only in the budget version! Dolphins all tortured, stripped, show program standard that with cat that with dolphins, typical lunch buffet of chicken rice and French fries, but if you ask, will bring not roasted lobster! You just don't forget to ask, and they may not bring! Don't waste your money if you do not want to be disappointed! And if you take this tour plus catamaran, be careful with the weather, a catamaran have nowhere to hide from the rain and wind, all people arriving in the Dolphinarium were soaked and frozen! In December, the weather is changeable.
