Fodor's Review

This multimillion-dollar aquatic park in Cofresí has marine and wildlife interactive programs, including dolphin and sea lion shows and encounters, a double-dolphin swim, a tropical reef aquarium, stingrays, shark tanks, an aviary, a rain forest, and the Tiger Grotto inhabited by Bengal tigers. You must make advance reservations if you want to participate in one of the swims or encounters; children must be at least six and accompanied by an adult. The exhilarating (albeit

expensive) double-dolphin swim will produce lifelong memories. If you are brave enough for the (nurse) shark encounter, you will feed them and touch them in the shark cove; the stingray encounter is also included. A photo lab and video service can capture the moment, but there is a charge. If you're staying at nearby Lifestyle resorts, or hotels in Puerto Plata, transfers are free. If in Sosua or Cabarete, transfers are $5 per person; hotels should have the tour schedules. There’s a private beach, showers, and a locker room on-site.
