    Dolphin Encounter at Dolphin Playa del Carmen

    People of all ages can participate!

    For your next vacations in the Riviera Maya, more specifically Playa del Carmen, we recommend you swimming with dolphins. This activity is perfect for you, your family and friends. This experience is one of the most coveted in the Riviera Maya region, as well as in the entire world.

    The Dolphin Encounter program will definitely bring you joy as soon as you get to see these fantastic animals. You will be able to touch and caress them in the water; however, the exciting part of this program is the possibility to hug our lovely dolphins. A charming experience indeed! You don’t have to worry if you’re not a swimmer, you’ll be standing on a submerged platform.

    Dolphin Discovery-Playa del Carmen invites you to live a life-touching experience that will give you memories you won’t soon forget. If you combine this with all the sandy white beaches, turquoise sea waters, and the wide variety of activities to do in Playa del Carmen, you will definitely get a fantastic vacation.
