Delfiniti Ixtapa (755 553 2736). Meet the dolphins through six interactive programmes, from 45min swims (US$124/M$2070) to 20min encounters (US$82/M$1065). There are packages for families and a special programme for kids 3–7 years of age.

Mundo Mágico Acuaparque (1800 917 5292). Every kid loves a water park and though this is a small one, it delivers with fun slides and pools (entry M$100).

Parque Aventura Ixtapa (755 115 1733). Rope ladders, Himalayan rope bridges and eleven zip lines (some 250m long and 30m high; US$45/M$750) provide the thrills at this popular theme park, though it’s fairly tame by international zip standards. .
