Swimming with dolphins in Cienfuegos

Wow, what I day this was. I went to the dolphin show in Cienfuegos, because our guide said this show was much better and cheaper that that in Guardelavaca. It was unbelievable and unforgettable. The ones who did this, should never forget it. First there just was a dolphin show you can see in every zoo, with balls and everything, ideal for kids and shooting photo's. And than, if you wanted to (and 5 of our group including me did), swimming with the dolphins. But we could not expect what it did with us! The swimming is in a river, and these dolphins love the do it. You could see that the other dolphins in the basin looked there heads to watch it. First you swim with them, touch them, they swim to you.

You can even put your head in there mouths. Then the group form a line, and the dolphins jump right over you. I have never seen it in other shows.

Than the must incredable thing in the entire vacation happined. We watched it in the group before us, our mouths wide open. This can be possible! But it happens. Everybody apart, one by one, swim forward. Than 'lie' in the water. The 2 dolphins come to you, jump over you and than swim behind you and turn around. Then they swim to you and with every nose lift you up under you foot. You actually standing with your 2 foot in 2 dolphins noses, who lift you up from the water and take you for 100 metres and than you dive of them. It looks even unbelievable! But it happens to you. The feeling when you are lift up from the water by 2 dolphins, and after 100 m dive off them is unbelievable. I never saw it ever in another dolphin show. Everybody who did this would say the same, this was the most incredable moment of the vacation. The people who stayed at the hotel in Cienfuegos, really missed something!!!!!
