The Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa in Tulum - Akumal is the location of Dolphin Discovery’s latest marine attraction: Dolphin Akumal. The recently inaugurated dolphinarium features a saltwater lagoon - home to four Atlantic bottlenose dolphins - where visitors can get up close and personal with the marine mammals while standing on an underwater platform, observation deck or while floating in the lagoon.
“We are very happy about this collaboration with the world’s leading company of dolphinariums," said Don Abel Matutes, President of Sirenis Hotels & Resorts at the recent inaugural ceremony.
"Swimming with dolphins is an unforgettable one-of-a-kind vacation experience for resort guests and represents a bonus to any guest staying at our hotel.”
“Through a partnership with one the most important Hotel Groups from Spain, the development of this habitat allows us to offer the experience of swimming with dolphins to tourist at Akumal and Tulúm hotels," added Eduardo Albor, Dolphin Discovery Group CEO. "We are sure that it will be a total success since we have the support of several commercial partners.”
