AAA Editor Notes

Ocean World is 3 mi. (5 km) w. on the Carretera 5 (C-5) to Cofresí Beach following signs. Comprising a series of artificial lagoons and aquariums constructed along the Atlantic shore, the adventure park is home to bottlenose dolphins, sea lions, sharks, stingrays, tropical birds and other exotic animals. Park admission includes snorkeling in a tropical reef aquarium and swimming in Pirate's Pool. The highlight of the park is its dolphin, sea lion and shark encounter programs, which allow guests to interact with these intelligent marine mammals; age restrictions may apply. Visitors can also walk through bird aviaries and a rain forest, be in close contact with baby dolphins at the nursery, enjoy waterslides and relax on a sandy beach. Guests also can enjoy other forms of entertainment in the complex, including sunset dinners overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and a trendy bar with high-definition televisions. During “Bravissimo Show,” an international dinner dance show, performers in vibrant costumes take the audience on an enchanted Caribbean journey through interpretive dance; reservations are required. Guests should wear swimwear under clothes and bring a towel and sunscreen. Food is available. Time: Allow 4 hours minimum.
