Operating out of the Hyatt Ziva in the Hotel Zone, Delphinus Punta Cancún allows visitors to swim with dolphins. The facility offers multiple programs, each focused on a different type of interaction with the dolphins. For example, the "Dolphin Ride" program allows visitors to swim with the dolphins, while "The One" allows swimmers to get to know one specific dolphin over the course of 45 minutes. 

Recent visitors raved about their experience and said it's particularly well suited to children 5 years and older. Along with the interaction with the animals, visitors are also given a short presentation on the animals and their environment. The only complaint among past visitors pertained to the prices (especially for photos), which some described as "ridiculous." 

Delphinus is based in the Hyatt Ziva. Schedules and prices vary depending on which program you choose: For example, "The One" costs $424.15 if booked online and $499 if booked on-site, while the "Dolphin Ride" costs $92.65 if booked online and $109 if booked on-site. Transportation from other properties within the Hotel Zone is available for an additional fee. The attraction welcomes visitors daily from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information, visit Delphinus' website.
