What You Can Expect

Manati Park with Optional Dolphin Swim

Swim with dolphins in Punta Cana!

Once you’re picked up from your hotel in Punta Cana and arrive at Manatí Park, your knowledgeable guide leads you on a 2-hour tour of the landscaped theme park. You’ll be introduced to native fauna including orchids and other tropical plants. Stop by animal exhibits featuring fauna of the Dominican Republic such as caimans, iguanas, tropical birds, flamingos and snakes, and learn about their behaviors from the keepers.

You can opt to see several animal shows scheduled throughout the day. Watch dolphins follow the commands of their trainer, see horses perform equestrian tricks and be amused by the antics of comical parrots.

Immerse yourself in the indigenous culture of the Dominican Republic at the Taino Village. Observe the choreographed steps of Taino dances that showcase their rituals and folklore, and see craftspeople fashioning the art of their ancestors—with paintings, statues and traditional clothing on display at the museum.

The tour was amazing. Our personal tour guide, Antonio Banderes, showed us every exhibit of the park. He also made sure that we were on time for all of the shows. We also swam with the Dolphins which was an extraordinary experience. The staff was very helpful and the Dolphins were so pleasant

I enjoyed the park and it was actually better than I expected. I didn't expect to have our own park guide but it was nice and Willie was fun and with his bit of English and our bit of Spanish, we were able to communicate. The dolphin show was a bit shorter than expected but loved the unexpected parrot show. I enjoyed the experience and glad that I went. However due to the lack of communication from our bus driver he was the only person that was not tipped. He didn't even greet us after we greeted him...he looked a bit annoyed by the whole process of picking up from the various resorts and dropping us off. NoBueno

Swimming with the dolphins was awesome which makes the experience rate a 4 star. We were also given a VIP tour with Antonio Bandares who was extremely entertaining. The horse show and the Native dancing was just ok.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better November 2015

Wow, not what we were expecting. The bus will drop you off and you are trapped there for 4 hours with no way out. You're expected to go to all the animal shows which last about 15 minutes each and are spread out with time in between for wandering around looking at the animal displays. Problem is a Guide will latch onto you and steer you around to places where they very aggressively try to sell you junk.
There are some cool displays and a lot to see, but the aggressive vendors really turned us off. They will not go away until you get almost rude with them.
Be warned, I read a couple of reviews before we went and wondered how bad can it be.
IT'S PRETTY BAD, YOU ARE A TARGET AS SOON AS YOU WALK IN.
