Continuing on from yesterday's post, we selected Dreams Puerto Aventuras for our mother-daughter getaway, because we were intrigued by the idea of swimming with dolphins. Lucky for us, the resort boasts its only dolphin and manatee program which is offered via Dolphin Discovery, a company that oversees many of the Caribbean's dolphin interactions.
Swimming with dolphins was something once on my bucket list. In fact, I had it high on my 30 Before 30 list. It wasn't something I accomplished, and, after some thought, decided not to carry over onto my 40 Before 40 list. After some consideration and research, I wasn't sure this was something I wanted to do or make a point to do anyhow. However, after my mom mentioned wanting to swim with dolphins on this trip, I decided to induldge her.
I was apprehensive at first, but I'm so glad we did it! Our package allowed us time to interact with manatees, feed them, and pet them, as well as swim AND kayak with dolphins!
Is swimming with dolphins for you?
