  • staff speaks only Spanish, from time to time he will put in a word in English. We were with a small child during the show wanted to see the parrots but the service was choosing quite someone else, no interest. after a few omissions by the staff, I could not look at the disappointment of the child.   beautiful animals, average place, I leave you your own evaluation
  • Although not a fan of captive dolphins etc. We took our kids 16 and 3 to visit selwo marina. All the demonstrations were informative and well thought out. It was obvious to see that the keepers love their animals in their charge. The talks were short and to the point. The only down side was the cleanliness of the eating areas but I can put that down to the messiness if the visitors who are more than capable of cleaning up after themselves.
