We took our 2 year old for the dolphin encounter and it was amazing. I was shocked at how cost effective it was and th amount of personal time we got with the dolphin and the trainer. Plus we got lunch and access to the water park with our purchase. We highly recommend checking this out!

Everything about the dolphin experience was absolutely fun. The attentive and friendly staff was always on point. Felt the price of the pictures were ridiculously over priced.

Loved swimming with the dolphins...however, I did not and didn't want to do the water park. Staff is great and the animals are well treated. Going again in 3 weeks.

Monday was the only day we could visit the dolphins which meant that the water park was closed. We weren't that interested in rides anyway, mainly wanted to swim with the dolphins. Our trainers were amazing! Because the park is closed on Monday they spent extra time with us and let us do some extra things that you wouldn't be... More

We went to this park and it sucked! The staff and management limited your movement with ridiculous over the top rules. I would warn you it is expensive and boring. The lazy river was okay but that was about it. Don't do it -

Staff who could speak English were good. But we were to have have individual family show which they did not allow, limited our time yo 30 mins instead of 40, and had overpriced pictures in the DVDs. Thx

We have done both Dolphins in Puerto Vallarta and this one is the best! We did the sea lion adventure and it was great! We didn't do the water park due to time limits but, it looked good. We plan to return.
