Difference: Dolphin Discovery Cozumel vs Isla Mujeres

Can anyone so kindly provide insight into the difference or preference of Dolphin Discovery Cozumel/ Chankanaab National Park facilities and packages versus the Dolphin Discovery Isla Mujeres/Garrafon Park?

We will be spending a few nights on Cozumel and only a day trip to Isla, so I am not sure if I should wait and go when on Cozumel or if the Isla location, package and park are worth spending the time during my visit there. It is not my first time on Isla but it will be the first for my children. The only other must do while on Isla is the Turtle Farm, the beach, and fish tacos.

Thanks in advance!

It is a risk. However, I am hopeful. :D

I'd stick with the turtle farm and the fish tacos.

It is my personal opinion, hope and suggestion that you research captive dolphin attractions before putting your children in a pen with one.

Wouldn't they be much more excited about taking a cruise and seeing them in the wild?

"Marine parks are bad news for non-human animals like dolphins. Resulting from years of boredom, swimming in circles in a pool the size of a bathtub(compared to their natural environment), captive cetaceans exhibit abnormal aggression and repetitive behaviors. Many captive cetaceans are extremely mentally distressed and resort to self-mutilation, vomiting and even suicide attempts …*shudders* This doesn’t sound like a life, does it?"

May be best to find other types of "entertainment".
