  • My family and I purchased a package for dolphin encounter, went to playa maroma and the place really very large from the entrance you begin to channel so do not miss, the parking is a bit secluded but worth going have a restaurant in which you can consume in what you expect to enter with the dolphins , you enter only your swimsuit and a vest life are 30 min. And the instructor accommodates you in the best way so you saludes and them a kiss the dolphin are wonderful animals... so take you the photo, photos that you take sell them to you at the end in the shop of amenities.

  • I've walked past this every day for a week and my girlfriend is a huge animal lover who desperately wants to have a great experience with these animals but... (I'll disclaim the next bit by saying I'm no marine biologist) animals that can swim that fast should not be in cages (there's no other way to describe them) that small. Swimming with dolphins in the ocean is one thing, this is quite another.
  • Better to go see the Dolphins in the morning as they will swim up to see you than pay big $$# to be in the water.
  • It very good. Kids have a great time swimming with dolphins
  • One pays for the dolphins, but can't have your own camera. They sell the pictures they have taken for an extra $150!!!
  • Good
