When you are vacationing in Cancun, you will have many options as to how to spend your free time; there are bars, restaurants, tours and excursions aplenty… but there’s nothing quite like swimming with dolphins in Cancun. Dolphins are without a doubt some of the most intelligent and charismatic mammals you’ll come across in any lifetime and if you are lucky they will follow you, play with you and interact in a way that few animals can.
Swim with Dolphins in Cancun
When you plan your dolphin day with friends and family we would recommend that you book in small groups to get the best possible experience and most time with the dolphins – also do try to go to places where the dolphins are kept in large, deep tanks rather than small, cramped swimming pools.
What to expect when you swim with dolphins in Cancun
If you go to a dolphin park, then you will have the chance to enjoy more than one photograph taken with the dolphins, which are trained especially to do all kinds of tricks. You could also hug, kiss and be pushed along by them in the water. If you are really lucky, you might even be able to learn to communicate with them and perform tricks.
If you choose the alternative route of going with a company that specializes in finding wild dolphins then your experience will be less predictable. However, this is an experience that supersedes many others; there’s nothing quite like seeing these wonderful creatures in their natural habitat. Can you imagine a better legacy to take home with you from Cancun?
Tips for swimming with dolphins
As we’ve mentioned before it would probably be best to book in a small group so that you get as much time with the dolphins as possible – it would also be best if you did not wear sunscreen as this can contaminate the water in which they live. Show these animals kindness, understanding and respect and they will reward you tenfold with an experience you could not replicate in any other way.
