The Dolphin Encounter is our most informative program and specially designed for kids of all ages. It is the ideal family-friendly activity to enjoy in Costa Maya.
The Dolphin Encounter is a fun and safe dolphin interaction program where our especialists will share with you unique information about bottlenose dolphins and their habitat. The dolphin will offer you his kindness with a sweet kiss and a hug. You will also get to enjoy a number of games and activities.
