The Submarine was a lot of fun, but getting to the experience takes about a half hour. Then when we asked if we would be dropped off in the same area we were picked up at they said yes. This is NOT what happened. We got dropped off at their office and had to walk all the way back to the port. This is not a very clean part of town and good luck finding a restroom. The first one was all locked up; when we came to the 2nd one it was open but very unclean. When my husband was coming out of the men's room some guy was waiting at the door with a bag of stuff (probably drugs) as soon as my husband walked out the guy shut the door and locked it (this was a 6 stall bathroom). We walked back to the port and got on the ship.
Horrible experience, these poor dolphins have a terrible life. They are in a concrete pool (which is pretty dirty) and they can't go very far. A couple of the dolphins were bleeding on the around their snouts. They had to switch them for kisses. It was so sad to see. I wish we would have never done this. We only did it for our 4 year old. It is NOT worth the money for this.
If you want a good experience go to discovery cove in Orlando. At least the dolphins have huge areas that are not concrete. When there dolphins need a break they put them in a different pool and give them the rest of the day off.
Costa Maya works the same dolphins all day everyday and this is not fair to the dolphins.
This island is beautiful. We had Cabana #15 and it was a nice and relaxing thing to have. You don't have to share the beach with anyone but the people who are in the Cabana's. The BBQ Lunch was really good. The beach was very nice, and the water was as clear as could be and you could see everything.
