Mundomar is a theme park inhabited by aquatic animals such as dolphins and penguins together with sea lions and tropical birds. As much as possible each species lives within an area closely resembling its natural habitat. It’s a great day out for the children who will most likely find that the dolphin show is the highlight of their day. There are two shows daily with each one lasting 30 minutes. There is a large amphitheatre to watch the show from or alternatively it’s great to watch it from one of the underwater viewing points which provide a unique sight of these delightful creatures in action. During every show two children are selected to go in the boat that the dolphin pulls. You can order Mundomar tickets online then print them out before travelling.
The sea lions and the seals also put on an entertaining show that the kids will love. The parrots on roller skates provide no end of amusement though the person conducting the show is speaking Spanish so you won’t understand everything that’s going on. There is also a show of exotic birds flying which is a very colourful display. All of these shows are on twice daily but times tend to vary from year to year so you should find out the times as soon as you get there.
As a lovely souvenir of the day you can have your photo taken with the dolphins, sea lions, parrots or the lemurs. Again there are set times for this which you will find when you get there or on the official website.
Although a bit on the pricey side an amazing option is to swim with either the dolphins or the sea lions and this is something which you will not forget in a hurry. You get to spend 30 minutes with the dolphins or 40 minutes with the sea lions. While both experiences are wonderful I would highly recommend the dolphin encounter as we enjoyed it immensely. You should book this at least two days before you want to do it as it gets very booked up especially in the high season.

In summer the park can be very hot but there are usually people walking around with fine sprays of water to help you keep cool and you will often be sprayed during the shows which you will probably greatly appreciate.
Away from the birds and animals there’s a children’s park with plenty slides and other amusements and a selection of cafés and restaurants should provide a welcome break to the adult contingent. There are also plenty of open areas where you can sit and relax and even enjoy a picnic if you choose to bring one.
Many people do spend the whole day in Mundomar but this will probably depend on how many of the shows you watch and how old your children are. It is a good idea to get there quite early as the first of each of the two shows are often a bit better than the later ones. If you prefer to only spend a half day in the park then you may want to combine this with a visit to the Aqualandia water park which is just next door.
How To Get to Mundomar
