We had the most amazing time you could have, the souvenir photos and the shop are expensive but it is something you just have to have so be prepared for that. Everything there was fantastic, love birds eating out of your hair and being kissed by a parrot in the bird enclosure!! meeting the dolphins is something we will never forget and well worth the money.
