  • A horrible case of animal abuse is going on here. The pool is nowhere near appropriately sized for dolphins, ignoring the fact that they shouldn't be held captive at all let alone be used for "rides". These intelligent creatures deserve so much better than to sit around in a filthy kiddie pool waiting for the next fat drunken tourist to ride them. Shame on this company for exploiting wildlife and shame on anyone and everyone who patrons this business. How any of you sleep soundly at night is beyond me.
  • Nice place to swim with the dolphins. First of all, it is close to the cruise ternimal. And second of all - it is cheaper than in other places. If you dont want to pay - you can always watch the dolphins for free. That what I actually did. There are also a lot of bars where you can taste real mexican food and drinks. And you can swim in the pool by this area. There are also pink flamingos and beautiful parrots you can see for free.
  • Very nice lots to do. Shopping and eating. But be sure to haggle!
  • Great place to see dolphins. Nice program but place is very busy and prici.
  • Had a wonderful experience at the turtle farm. Also friends attended the dolphin discovery and found that most fascinating
