We were very disappointed with this experience because we do not swim with the dolphins it is a fair supplement we can touch it very bad surprise for us when we were told that if we wanted to swim with them we had to pay more than a real one scam my child was very sad because his dream was not fulfilled as expected in addition to all this paying 120 dollars for 1 photo print and 10 by email I do not recommend this place at all we also full at their direction but a priori it was not the first time that tourists complain very unfortunate
