Hello to all you lovely travellers! ;D
I’m new to this forum, and I already love it! I’ve been reading just about every post I can find on Punta Cana as I’ll be there from Oct 24-31, staying at the Ocean Bavaro Spa & Beach Resort.
Anyway, it’s always been my dream to swim with dolphins. I was hoping to go to Ocean World, but when we booked in Punta Cana that dream was shot. Then I started doing research on Manati Park. It sounds nice, but I read a lot of nasty things about it on another forum. But unfortunately the posts mostly consisted of “Don’t go there, they treat their dolphins poorly” But no other details or proof.
Now I’m worried. I don’t want to support an aqaurium/establishment that abuses it’s dolphins.
Can you folks shed some light on this situation for me? Should I support this place? Is it even worth it? (For those of you who have been there & swam with the dolphins)
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!
