My husband and I swam, played, and interacted with the dolphins at Delphinus Xcaret while we were on our honeymoon in Mexico. The transportation at our resort was slightly delayed, however Delphinus reimbursed us and we were very pleased. The experience with the dolphins is something we will never forget! The trainers were very knowledgeable and made the experience fun... More

To start with a positive, the actual experience of swimming with a dolphin was incredible. It's obvious the dolphins are well cared for and happy; their enclosure area is quite big and is clean, they are always being fed plenty of fish by the trainers. The basic dolphin swimming package at Xcaret is $99 per person, but we managed to... More

I have to say that with regret I left feeling incredibly let down and utterly shocked. I bought the package for my friend and I to have a "once in a life time" experience swimming with dolphins. As much as when we actually had a chance to swim with the dolphins as enjoyable as it was, I feel the rest... More

Unbelievable. Our two dolphins, Miranda and Maqual, were only youngsters in training but behaved impeccably and things couldn't have gone smoother. Our trainer, Andrea, was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable, and the two dolphins obviously had a connection with her because they never misbehaved once. Andrea even made provision for my wife's slight disability in that she can only lift... More

Unbelievable interactive experience! Petting, foot push, swim, tricks, teeth brushing... Would go again and again. Purchase tickets at the park and save a $30. broker fee.

This was a fun activity, and they treat their dolphins much better than in other places in Cancun, they have a much bigger living and playing area, and the staff has a more animal friendly attitute.

This is the only reason we went to Xcaret. We had a memorable experience and it's clear that the staff and trainers care very much for the dolphins. Our experience (max 4 people, 45 mins) was worth the money as I got an online deal. What does let it down is the rip-off prices for photos and a video. £70... More
