  • the Encounter activity allows a 1st approach with the dolphins. Very well with children because gentle activities and contacts with the dolphins. Included in the price of one lunch (hamburger to avoid) and access to the beach club, which overlooks a beautiful beach of white sand. The photos are expensive unit (40 USD). We refused to take pictures in the dedicated area and then from another person offered a better offer (7 photos for 80 USD).
