If on Isla this is a MUST. Both kids and adults have lots of fun. Swimming with Dolphins is unforgettable experience. Just be aware they will try to gouge on pictures. Prices are absolutely ridiculous. Food was great though.

I'm writing this review to target the owners of this resort. Action needs to be taken to stop ripping customers off. The excursion itself costs £300 (around $375 USD at the time of writing). When you arrive at the port they go through various upgrades. We paid for VIP (around $30 USD extra) and then began our journey on the... More

We spent the day with 8 of us at Dolphin Discovery at Isla Mujeres and it was wonderful. We had access to VIP cabanas and got incredible pictures. But, what made the day incredible was their staff member David. We had a confusion that was an issue on my vacation planners side and David went above and beyond any service... More

I booked this on Viator, Trip Advisor's new app selling excursions. For starters, the directions of where to get the ferry were wrong and if we had not left extra time and had a smart driver, we would have been hosed. No excuse! The ferry was chaos. Upselling all kinds of stuff that should have sold previously. I bought a... More
