your experience

If action and speed are your thing, then the Royal Swim Plus program in Riviera Maya Puerto Aventuras is the perfect addition to your holiday bucket list! What makes this program worthwhile is its dynamic episodes. You will not only get the exclusive chance to swim with dolphins but also interact with other gregarious and underwater species like manatees and sea lions. Once you’re in the water, you will experience the famous foot push, where a friendly flipper will push the sole of your feet up the undulating water surface. After that, enjoy a speedy and exhilarating ride in the waters as you grab onto their dorsal fins. You will also enjoy some friendly playtime with all the creatures, giving you a first-hand impression of their character and behaviors. After the program, relax and unwind as you make use of the top-notch facilities.
