smart, graceful and so darn adorable - who can't resist dolphins?
Watching these beautiful creatures from behind a glass wall
in an aquarium is fine, but swimming
with dolphins, now there's an adventure that you'll always remember.
Fortunately, there are several facilities in Cuba
that present entertaining dolphin shows, then allow visitors to swim
with the dolphins. Most dolphin swims cost $30 or more and last around
15 to 20 minutes.
Aquarium at Bahia de Naranjo Nature Park
The biggest facility in Cuba, this aquarium has large ocean pens where guests can swim with the dolphins. Pay a little extra, and the dolphins will even push you through the water.

Delfinario at Playa Rancho Luna
The newest addition to Cuba's dolphin swimming market, this facility is fresh and spiffy, if a bit smaller than some of the others. Constructed around a natural cove, the delfinario also has shows and photo sessions with dolphins for those who don't want to get in the water.
