Riding dolphins!
Riding dolphins! Need I say more? Bring a ton of cash if you want to buy pictures. Crazy expensive so we did not purchase those. We will never forget it though!

Excellent for small kids, perfect experience.
Excellent for small kids, perfect experience. Highly recommend this! A MUST DO is the dolphin swim, where you are holding onto the dolphin and swimming belly to belly!

This was one of the highlights of the trip.
This was one of the highlights of the trip. Just walk off the ship and you are at the park. The photos are expensive, but no way around it. After that took the tram into the town, which is small. Walked around and it was fun.

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.

Excellent experience!
Excellent experience! Our advice would be to take a later time. The crowds from the ships in the morning flood the dolphin center to capacity. In the afternoon, no one was swimming with the dolphins. I bet you will have more one on one ... Read More
