Delfinario, Varadero
(3.7/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
At Delfinario, see dolphins juggling basketballs, flying through hoops, and shooting goals in a large pool surrounded by lush vegetation. Catch one of the four daily shows between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm. After each show, you can swim with the intelligent mammals, rub their bellies, and take pictures with them. Let the dolphins take you for a ride, flip you into the air, and kiss you. Other residents you can spot roaming freely including pelicans, seagulls, and iguanas. Note that the dolphins here are kept here in captivity; if that upsets you, you may want to avoid the dolphinarium. Take a look at our Varadero trip generator to schedule your visit to Delfinario and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • We booked our trip through Thomas cook and although it was quite run down we decided to go ahead with the Dolphin swim.My partner can't swim but wanted to try the experience,and although the life jack...  more »
  • In a large natural pool lebenso to die20 dolphins that are very zutraullich. at 11:00 and 15:30, there are shows which show good and unusual feats. Swimming with dolphins is offered. The pure entrance with visit to a show cost EUR 15. The area is small and there is only a 1/2 hour prior to start of the shows there to be, because there are also shows to explore anything except a snack bar. The Zuschauertribune is totally rusted and there is already fear that it could collapse under full load.

  • My first time ever encounter with dolphins. I know there must be much better place out there, but the show was great and the fact that they allow u to go pet/kiss the dolphins is great.
  • I went with my family last year and guess what the staff was very rude and they didn't let you take pictures with your own camera! Badly costumer service.
  • The swimming was amazing, the only bad experience was the expensive video/photo at the end
  • Hello I have been to delfinario on April 20, 2015 2:30 p.m. ET i have purchase the dvd for the picture and the video of the show with me swimming with the dolphins and when I arrive at home on April 24 too look at my DVD my DVD was empty still virgin i've paid 35 CUC for it .... I going back in Varadero in may or june and i would like to get a real copy and i will bring the virgin DVD back to you :( hope you still can get the copy thanks
  • Good display the dolphins look well looked after. Worth paying extra to swim with them! Good fun! No need to take a camera buy the video or a photo afterwards.
