The dolphin show only lasted about 20 mins. Fortunately we planned on swimming with the dolphins afterwards, but we had an hour to kill before the show (having arrived on the morning bus tour) and there was absolutely nothing to do there, other than sit and eat at the outdoor café. Its just a tiny enclosure- (though the dolphins do... More

We visited the plade during our 2 week of holiday in Cuba and had a great time. The swimming is a must, since the shows are more or less the same all around the world. Keep it up and we promise to be back.

I think that this delfinario is the one on the mainland which we didn't go to. But if you book one of the catamaran trips then you can visit the lagoon dolphin area which was fab. I was taken there on a small boat by three really friendly guys and then was allowed in the pool on a standing platform... More

Go! It is fabulous. My daughter and me visited in October after booking with our hotel which is cheaper than the 93 pesos it costs on your own without transport. We had a 30 minute 🐬 show to start with which was fantastic but the actual dolphin swimming was amazing. You actually get to touch them and they throw you... More

So we went this year to see the Dolphin show, and it was spectacular. Also rode a camel, which was interesting, but fun once I got the hang of it.

Visited here on a Tues morning reps always advise you go in a morning as the dolphins are more playful. The place itself is quite run down but so is most places in Cuba so this will not put you off. On arriving we Wer asked to change more or less straight away and then your separated into two groups... More

We went here to see the show and to swim with the dolphins afterwards. It is only semi contained so the dolphins can come and go as they please and looked to be very well treat by the people here. Great show and lots of interaction with the dolphins afterwards.
