An experience that necessarily appeals to young and old alike. A pleasant moment that the children still talk about. As a bonus, a quick show with sea lions and small tropical birds. Only downside as often on tourist activities, "the staging" to sell photos (quite expensive by the way), but that's part of the game, nothing is compulsory!!

Everything went very well - was well organized! It was a nice day not too long - we booked 1x excellence program - that was exciting. In retrospect we only ask ourselves whether the animals are treated in an appropriate way or whether it's too touristy!!!! You have to weigh that up - but it was a great experience. Met nice people from other continents

Magical moments with the dolphins. Allow a good half day because from the pick-up to the return you are guided and have to wait a lot. No photos allowed and this is more of a photo shoot than a meeting with the animals in a group. You will then have to go through the photo purchase box, shop and bar before being able to access the parakeet and sea lion shows that will sign your return to the hotel.
