AAA Editor Notes
Delfiniti Ixtapa is at the n. end of the Hotel Zone, adjacent to the Posada Real Ixtapa hotel; from Blvd. Ixtapa, follow the driveway to the hotel and Dolphinarium. Three different encounters are offered. Visitors can stand on a submerged platform for an underwater observation, pet dolphins as they swim in front of you, or swim with them by holding onto their fins. There also is a dolphin encounter for children.
Before the dolphin encounter begins you can have your picture taken with colorful parrots. Guests are accompanied to an area with lockers and seating, and a brief instructional program about dolphin interaction is given. Photos are taken throughout the program and are available for purchase.
Dolphin encounters can be reserved by phone or booked through your hotel; a major credit card is required to hold a reservation. Programs are offered in English and Spanish. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
