NileGuide Expert Says:
A good place if you want your kids to enjoy the swim-with -dolphins trend, as it is not as expensive as in many other parts of the country, or world. Book in advance (days ideally to do this, check the web) and be prepared to fork out more money for the photos you will be offered of your youngsters snuggling with a dolphin or feeding one a little fish - worth getting to prolong the memory. Little children love this.

NileGuide Expert tip:
Arrive early, keep change for your lockers (near the entrance) and bring a brand new bottle of sunblock along as this is the place you and your family are most in danger of burning.
This is mainly a family attraction to please the children, but Cici (pronounced Si-Si - everyone knows it), near the Hard Rock cafe, can make an exhilarating, popular day out for young-at-heart adults too. Food, especially the tacos and real Mexican fare, is inexpensive and most visitors (the majority Mexican) make a day of it. Adults tend to like the sky coaster. The trip up in the "hot air balloon" (pulled down by a cable) at the sea's edge and affording fine views of Condesa beach and along the bay, is pleasant and requires no exertion apart from waiting in a line. Check the website (only in Spanish) for prices and packages, but on the whole this is an inexpensive dip into Mexican popular culture.
