One day, so much money and so much to do. When you pay a lot of money for a ticket to a park or for an attraction you want to take advantage as much as you can of that attraction to recover the value of what you pay. At the end of the day you want to feel that it was all worth it.
Three years ago we went to Discovery Cove and for a misunderstand information we were not able to enjoy the buffet lunch that was included with the price. When we went to eat after swimming with the Dolphins, at that time the buffet was closed. Even though the park closed at 5 pm but you have until 3:00 to eat, but that was our time to swim with the Dolphins. Anyway we were really disappointed, but I can not deny that we had a great time with the Dolphin experience. After that, my husband always wanted to go back, he wanted for us to enjoy the whole experience.
So we did! This time we want en to enjoy it all. We had a great time, Jorge and I know have to have fun together. We started with breakfast which is just a regular buffet, nothing of the ordinary, but it was ok. And we went for a swim at the lazy river. The water was so soothing and warm, specially that day because it was windy and cool so feeling the warm water was very nice.
Along the way while we were going down the “paradise jungle” we encounter some friendly locals…
Then they playful otters! They are adorable! Later we swam with sting rays and fishes at freezing temperatures (at least for me. Here check out a little bit of what we did.
Then we saw these two… Don’t ask me what kind of game they are playing.
This year we didn’t swim with the Dolphins but we enjoyed seen other people having fun with the gentle creatures.
To end our full Discovery Cove experience we went to have lunch much earlier than the last time. It is so sad for me to share this, but I hated the food… 😦
We were looking forward to enjoy a great lunch, all that we could eat. Well unfortunately I tried almost all the options and didn’t like any of them. The selection that they have look like frozen food cooked in the microwave. I eat that every day at work for lunch, I didn’t need one more day of it, specially after the amount of money that you pay to go here. That lunch event almost ruin my day, I was so disappointed, I guess I didn’t miss much last time.
Discovery Cove is a one time nice experience. If you are with your loved ones you can make the best of it. But please don’t have high expectations with the food. But that is just my opinion.
