Since our resort was beside the Delfinario, we walked over to 'see the show'. The dolphins were truly amazing; however, you pay about $20 for a 30 minute (or so) show. If you want to 'swim' with the dolphins, the cost is over $100 Cdn!...More

You have to pay extra for the video (a little expensive for my taste). The water looked awfully dirty and my souvenir from the shack broke in 3 days.... but I got to kiss a dolphin

The dolphin swim and tricks was amazing but its all about making money. 180 pesos to go and then 80 pesos to get the picture and videos..

The Dolphins are nicely educated. However the show needs some improvements to better entertain the audience.

We came a few minutes early and the place was dead. Same trinkets you get everywhere in Varedero. The water is murky and you cannot see the dolphins under the water,, it looks dirty. The dolphins look sad. The water is nothing like what i...More

Hello, On Monday 25th July 16 we booked to go to the dolphin park and swim with Dolphins which was amazing. After we swam with them, our turn was at 11.30, we went to purchase the cd of the show and of me and my husband (Adam) with the Dolphins for 35 CUC. The cd however was to be delivered and left at the hotel reception the next day. We got home yesterday to discover that the cd we had been given wasn't of me and my husband but of a different group of people altogether! As you can imagine we are truly disappointed! I have tried to phone using the number on the website however it won't connect! Please would you be able to help us to get the correct dvd or at least our money back?! I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards Ruth Freer Sent from my iPhone
