Mike took such great care of us with the dolphins, who are so smart and amazing creatures. And the water park was fun too. Thanks for an awesome day!

We have been visiting this park every couple years for the last ten years or so. My son was finally old enough for the Royal Swim adventure...and loved every minute of it! My son and daughter both did the program. The staff is wonderful and patient with both the beautiful animals and the participants. The photographs are excellent, but pricey,... More

We just returned from a 3 generation Princess Cruise which included a port stop in Puerto Vallarta over Thanksgiving week. 10 of us ranging in age from 4 to 75 spent a wonderful day at Aquaventuras Park. We all did the water slides and 8 of us did the Royal swim with the dolphins. It was the highlight of our... More

Although the park was pretty much a ghosttown my daughter and I had fun. We purchased the dolphin encounter since she's only 2 1/2 and the only thing she's able to do. The price was $79 for myself and my daughter was free (I purchased beforehand from Puerto Aventuras). If you want to just have entry to the park I... More

We only had time to spend half a day here which wasn't nearly enough! We weren't planning on a dolphin encounter but the price was too good to pass up. We spent some time on the waterslides which my 7 & 9 year old loved! We saw there were ziplines (which we didn't have time to do) and a hanging... More

Learning the hand commands and seeing how she responded was fantastic. My wife had a great time and if we had the time would have done again. Be aware that if you want photo's... More

Restrictive height restrictions compared to Canada. My 45" tall daughter wasn't tall enough to ride any big slides, whereas she can ride almost all in Fallsview or Great Wolf Lodge in Niagara ON. I wasn't allowed to ride the slides because of a small (1/2 inch diameter) plastic button on the back pocket of my trunks. Attendant spoke only broken... More
