your experience

As one of Cancun’s top 10 best beaches, Playa Maroma is a simply wonderful place to explore stunning landscapes made up of white sand beaches, a beautiful turquoise sea, and to soak in the warm climate that you can only find in the Caribbean. Located in this beach paradise is Dolphin Discovery, where you have the unique opportunity of swimming with dolphins. The Royal Swim Program experience begins with you standing on a submerged platform, where the dolphins swim close enough to you for you to touch, hug and kiss!

What’s exciting is when you do fun activities with two dolphins, who are always eager to play with you. First, you will have to swim a certain distance so that the dolphins can swim towards you and you can hold on to their dorsal fins to be pulled by the water. Then, you will be static in the water and they will push you to rise above the water - a truly out-of-this-world experience!
