your experience

If you didn't already know, dolphins are extremely curious and friendly by nature, so when you arrive at Dolphin Discovery-Isla Mujeres, they will not hesitate to welcome you into their natural habitat. With the Royal Swim program, you get to swim with the adorable creatures and even caress, hug and kiss them! The most fun part is when you experience the thrilling dorsal tow and foot push - this is what happens when two dolphins pull you through the water with their dorsal fins and push you on your feet so that you rise above the water. More underwater adventures await you when you go snorkeling and see stingrays, or interact with one of the world's tamest creatures, the chubby manatees! Later, you can go biking around the island and enjoy a dip in the infinity pool, or simply sprawl out on the lounge chairs and enjoy a sunbath. Your ticket includes the delights of a buffet menu and the national open bar in the VIP area.

If you've chosen it as an option, you also get to enjoy the wonderful Garrafón Reef Natural Park. Apart from snorkeling through beautiful coral reefs, and kayaking in the fine weather, you can also slide down a zip line over the Caribbean Sea. Plus, since you chose the most exclusive experience, you can enjoy the VIP amenities within the park such as the temazcal and the VIP area, featuring comfortable lounge chairs and hammocks, as well as a refreshing panoramic pool. What's more, you have access to the restaurant to enjoy the exquisite buffet menu and the international open bar!
