Our swim with dolphins with Vallarta Adventures was one of the highlights of our trip! The only negative aspect was the painfully long drive from the ship to Nuevo Vallarta, the location of the dolphin swim. There is a military checkpoint between Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta at the Nayarit/Jalisco state border, and it took us an hour to go what should have taken 15 minutes. Luckily, our time with the dolphins wasn't cut short.
I had my concerns that I'd be displeased with the health of the dolphins, or with the way they were treated by their handlers. I could not have been more impressed with the apparent quality of the facility, and with the level of love shared between the dolphins and their handlers. The dolphins seem truly happy to play with and perform for people!
We had our seven year old son and two 70-something grandmas in our party, and they all had an amazing time! Highly recommended for anyone of any age.
