Wasn't anything I thought I would ever get the opportunity to do, was a really amazing experience. The dolphins are simply wonderful, beautiful, gentle. The staff are brilliant, and the setting wonderful. Would really recommend anyone to try this when in Mexico.

Abel to swim alongside several of the park dolphins including the baby of the park. The park staff was knowledgeable and taught us how to communicate with the dolphins. The pictures they took of the interaction were amazing.

The dolphin swimming experience was great! The kids loved it. Would have been lovely to have a photo or two, but that's where the scam begins. You cannot take your own photos, which is fine. A photographer follows you around most of the time. When...More

I am staying in the Occidental Xcaret, can we book wise we are there to swim with the dolphins or do we need to book in advance? Also can we use our credit to pay for this?

You book when you get to Xcaret. Yes, you can use your credit card. It's a wonderful experience! Have fun!

I see the above question asking about spectators going. If we buy this for our children (ages 23 and 13) do my husband and myself have to pay for admission to the park if I buy them the Dolphinclusive or primax? We are coming in January and I am researching the best dolphin swims to purchase:) Thank you!
