    Great for soul searching! I am a teacher and needed this getaway. Very relaxing and fell in love with the beauty of the dolphin. They were so gentle and a joy to watch them entertain us. Nice little b...  more »

    We went to the Dolphin discovery Cozumel in the place is organized, have lockers, restaurant. Swimming with dolphins is cool, but I think it's worth especially for children. But we've had a meeting with sea lion, which was amazing, are very smart and well trained, besides the instructor Gabriel gave us a lesson on these marine animals, was really amazing!

    The worst and cheaters. Stay away and do not go. I wish I can find no star category. They will rip you off, specially if you go from USA. Buying photo is the biggest rip off. Every customer walks out from the photo shop will be paying different prices. It will depend how good you are for negotiation. The supervisor is even worst. If you ask question, they will tell you that are you the one going to change the law of Mexico. If you pay by credit card, they will give you two receipts and some one good negotiator pay by cash, they will give you only one receipt, so you can never compare your stuff with other customer. I saw the tourist were paying $280 to $300 for the garbage CD they offer to some other people paid only $100.00 in cash. When you compare yourself with other people, they are very smart and since credit card payment get two receipt and cash is like nothing happen and may be under the table. Since most of the tourist goes with the cruise line, it seems like the tour guide is also gets commission from this people. They know that your cruise will be leaving and you can not fight much with these cheaters, they will continue to do this. I am going to reach out to the cruise line and file a official complaint against this people. May be the cruise line can cut this place as a part of their shore excursions. Stay away, rather go to Sea world or other places in USA.

    Good deal. Don't book through the cruise line. Book only one package. They will give you a good deal on upgrading to others when you get there.

    Amazing but EXPENSIVE - we were so excited only to be disappointed. Our experience was supposed to start at 1:15pm but delayed until 2:15pm, unorganized and with over 70 participants waiting. We were lined up by package - encounter $99, adventure $139, then combined into one group. BUT...all participants did the adventure package. I notified the front desk and was told no they paid for the adventure package on the ship...NOT! I noticed when we lined up we were by group, encounter then adventure...our group was not only adventure - it was only 4 of us..I was told I was wrong with the exception I was there and participated ....Pictures....amazing but EXPENSIVE...negotiate...they made an amazing experience disappointing...

    Friendly and professional staff. Clean facility, lunch buffet, and able to explore the rest of the park after our time with the dolphins. Hope to go back in the future!

    Amazing experience. I have been here twice (and yes, I am from the USA). Both experiences were amazing and the animals (dolphins, crocodiles, birds, and sea lions). We did the push, pull, swim with dolphin and free buffet both times. The buffet was good for being a free one and were allowed free soft drinks and alcohol. We also were allowed to explore the whole park for free after our dolphin experience. We even had time to see the sea Lion show, which allowed people to kiss a sea Lion at the end of the presentation. We always go here when we visit Cozumel on cruises, and will likely continue to do so. This place includes pools (freshwater and saltwater), free tequila tasting, free show, lagoon, zip lining, aviary, and more. The only small complaint I have is the pricing of the photos. The photos are in great quality, but they usually run for $35 per photo, which may be expensive to some individuals. If you are concerned with the pricing, the workers will give you tons of deals (i.e. My deal was all of my photos on CD and for download for $75 ). Overall, this is a fun and rare experience.

Where to stay in Cozumel

Most accommodations in Cozumel line the island's western shoreline, offering excellent beach access and the airport. Avenida Rafael E. Melgar provides the widest range of hotels and private rentals, with some of the more spacious and relaxed options sitting around 10 km (6.2 mi) south of the town center. Budget-conscious travelers should look to the main township, where a selection of smaller guesthouses and pensions can be found just a few streets back from the beach.
