Delfinario, Varadero

(3.7/5 based on 2,200+ 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.

  • Enjoyed it but we went there on a large catamaran and people who were in smaller groups got to do a lot more. We were never offered the option to go in a smaller group from our sunwing rep  more »

  • The tour was organised by the mini-club of the Arenas Doradas rock. A show followed by a photo with dolphins, children were appreciated.

  • 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.
