At Delfinario, see dolphins juggling basketballs, flying through hoops, and shooting goals in a large pool surrounded by lush vegetation. Catch one of the four daily shows between the hours of 8 am and 5 pm. After each show, you can swim with the intelligent mammals, rub their bellies, and take pictures with them. Let the dolphins take you for a ride, flip you into the air, and kiss you. Other residents you can spot roaming freely including pelicans, seagulls, and iguanas. Note that the dolphins here are kept here in captivity; if that upsets you, you may want to avoid the dolphinarium.
