  • The dolphin swim adventure was very enjoyable. There were numerous opportunities to per the dolphin, swim with it and even be pushed by one. The downside is that this place is very overpriced. You are not able to take your own photos of this wonderful activity. A DVD of photos will set a family of 4 back $220. That is a complete rip off in my opinion. There should be options to purchase some of the photos for a lower price. Also the restaurant on site has terrible food. The boat ride which is included is very short as well.
  • We really enjoyed the two dolphin experience. Our trainer was terrific and the dolphins were amazing. I could believe that they actually pushed my 300+ frame completely out of the water! It's a once in a lifetime experience and they definitely like to take advantage of that with the price of the photos. Expect to pay around $200 for your photos. WAY OVER PRICED. We went on the ATV rides in Cabo and it was $30 for the same amount of photos on a DVD. Cruisers be warned!!!!! They said that they included a speed boat and meal as part of the package, but that all of a sudden disappeared at the end of the dolphin experience. When our group complained they said it was a time issue but miraculously they got another group from the ship there, through the dolphin experience and back to the ship after our group left. The guy just didn't want to pay for another bus to get us all back to the ship. Very shady. I told the guy that I would submit an account of this but he didn't seem concerned. Be warned! I would recommend going with the dolphin experience in the harbor. It looks very clean, professional, and it is very convenient off the ship. I give this a 3 star purely based on the dolphins and our trainer who were great.
  • Professional trainers that appear to love the animals they care for. Amazing experience. Only downsides were the expense of the photos and they ran out of towels. Still, would recommend this experience and this company.
  • Great experience... Definitely worth doing the Royal plus package. No personal cameras allowed, pictures are expensive!!! $70 per person.
  • Really enjoyed the dolphins and the instructor was great. But, the cost for photos was over priced , wanted one picture with me and my friend, they wanted a $100, because it had 2 people in the picture. When I declined they tried to deal, I was so mad , we just left.

Where to stay in San Jose del Cabo

If you're after sun, sand, and surf, head straight for Zona Hotelera, the shorefront district brimming with large hotels, expansive beach resorts, and the occasional humble "posada" (inn). For a more genuine atmosphere and proximity to the town's charming historical center, as well as views over the nearby estuary, look for a boutique hotel or posada within the town itself, just back from the coast. If you want to split the difference, check out the selection of private rentals lying between the beach and the township.
