Take a Dip With the Dolphins

Take a Dip With the Dolphins

June 01, 2014

We may be partial to our picturesque playas, but we think the Caribbean's friendliest dolphins call the Riviera Maya home. Don't waste a minute getting to know them during the Dolphin Royal Swim at Puerto Aventuras, a gated resort community just a few minutes from the Reef Playacar. Our friends at Mayaland Tours will arrange a date with these sweet sea creatures, giving you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to swim and play with one of nature's most intelligent (and acrobatic) mammals. From dorsal tows to the legendary foot push to hugs and kisses, your dip with the dolphins will spoil you for all other animal encounters. Mayaland arranges all the details, including transportation to the marina, an hour of playtime, buffet lunch and, afterwards, a chance to relax and unwind at pretty Puerto Aventuras.
