“Pricey, but good experience”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

THe kids will never forget the experience they had up close and personal with the trained dolphins. Now, the organization wants to get you there early to take pictures with a baby leopard and birds ($$). They will not allow photos of the bird or jaguar. If you don't want to see animals manipulated, it's not for you. Yet, the show that was put on was better than the Dolphin show at sea world. If you have the funds do it! Your kids will talk about it forever. They did the show with 6 year olds to 40 year olds. You have to pay to simply observe, so not cheap.

“What a lifetime experience”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

What a great experience for the kid in you at any age. They seem to take great care of the dolphins. A little expensive for the full experience but well worth spending about an hour and a half in the water with them.

“Swimming with dolphins”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

My son had an EXTREMELY good time swimming with the dolphins! It is pricey, but looks to be cheaper if you book your appointment with Delfiniti directly instead of through your hotel excursion desk. If you don't swim they still charge you to sit there for the 'show'. Mostly it is just watching your kids/adults interact with the dolphins, but there are some trick performed. It is about $20 to just sit & watch. Sorry to say, you can't take any pictures ~ you must purchase from Delfiniti for around $8 each. They will take US$ or credit cards or pesos. The dolphins appear happy, healthy & well fed ~ lots of fresh fish treats given & happily consumed. :) Easy to have a taxi take you there.

“Swim with Dolphins?”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

It was a wonderful experience that everyone should try once. I know, Dolphins in a very large pool may seem cruel and going here may seem to encourage their captivity but it was a blast.

“Amazing experience swimming with the dolphins”
Reviewed 13 July 2013

Visited Delfiniti in our trip to Ixtapa last week. It was an amazing experience to swim and interact with the Dolphins. It is better to choose the package were you can hold them and interact more with them. The trainers are experienced and make the visit very funny. The pictures are pricey, almost $10 each..
