Cancun is one of the most fascinating places in Mexico. Coral reefs and other water creatures such as dolphins, sea lions, and rays thrive in the Caribbean Sea.
Delphinus’ interactive aquarium, where wildlife is conserved with care and consciousness, may be found here. Your family may take a tour of the aquarium, learn about different species, and have a gentle and loving experience swimming and interacting with dolphins inside the retail village center of La Isla, approximately 25 minutes from the airport.
Dolphins habitats are also available at the Hyatt Ziva Hotel in Punta Cancun. This semi-natural ecosystem has a favorable location in Cancun’s Hotel Zone since its waters originate straight from the Nichupté lagoon system, which is fed by underwater cenotes. There are cenotes in Cancun, too!
Playa Mujeres, on the other hand, is located in Cancun’s newest Hotel Zone, on the border between Cancun and Isla Mujeres. As a result, your dolphin encounter will take place on the beach of the famous Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort, directly in the Caribbean Sea.
Have you ever heard of Isla Mujeres? It’s a 4.5-mile-long island in the Mexican Caribbean that’s 8 miles distant from Cancun and takes 30 minutes to get to by ferry. Dolphin Discovery-Isla Mujeres is surrounded by lush green palm trees, a sandy-white beach, and deep blue and turquoise crystalline water in the island’s south. In a nutshell, it’s the perfect location for a dolphin encounter.
Getting a chance to Swim with dolphins in Cancun is a rare and often once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. There is a possibility that their company is strange for you initially, however later on you will enjoy participating in activities such as belly-riding, kissing, hugging, and even being pushed by dolphins, one of the most wonderful and intelligent animals on the planet.
Swimming alongside other marine species in their natural habitat, such as sea lions, sharks, manatees, and stingrays, can also give you a better experience. Our experts will teach you numerous details about these animals, as well as their daily specialized food and wellness regimens.
