At Delfiniti Ixtapa, dolphins in a huge pool interact with paying customers—giving "kisses" and "hugs" and short rides (you hang onto their fins as they paddle around on their backs)—in exchange for food treats. Sessions are $160, and are organized by the age of customers (three–adult). Reservations are highly recommended—you can book online—especially if you have kids under 7, as there are limited time slots available. Blvd. Ixtapa s/n, next to Best Western Posada del Real, Zihuatanejo, 40880. 775/553–2707. www.delfiniti.com.
