Delfinario, Varadero

3.6
#1 of 10 in Zoos & Aquariums in Cuba
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.

    The function with the dolphins very entertaining and surprising. The place is very nice is have a good time in their spaces. Swimming with dolphins very entertaining although a little expensive. It does not include services of photos and videos, you must pay it separately at a high price

    Classic spectacle of dolphin that will delight children and that, for an extra fee of 5 cuc, allows access to the platform to photograph you with dolphins. Reasonable price. Monitor that takes part of the photographs is very nice. You pass a good late; the site allows you to drink.

    🏊 the dolphinarium is really far out to sea so needs a long boat ride. The dolphins look really healthy and it was a fun swimming experience

    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.

    The swimming was amazing, the only bad experience was the expensive video/photo at the end
