Dolphins are intelligent, playful creatures that are very social. Although they live in the water, these mammals share more traits with humans than they do with fish. Mexico is one of a few countries in the world where you can swim with dolphins. A number of locations and tour companies cater to individuals interested in this amazing, and some say therapeutic, experience.
