It's amazing that the dolphin can do the tricks that you can even imagine. Remember to touch them gently.

My partner is not a strong swimmer. No problem we were able to stand up in a shallow pool. The trainers are fantastic with the dolphins, they looked happy. We loved every second.

By far the best place to see these lovely creatures in captivity. The swim was unbelievable and they are so careful with you.

Hi Scarlet, I spent over 3 weeks traveling solo across Cuba. It's absolutely safe. You get everywhere the typical Cuban catcalling but just ignore it. They are harmless. If you will stay at hotel they will have various tours... More
