The recently-opened “Los Delfines Water & Entertainment Park” is the largest of its kind in the Caribbean.
The park, built with an initial investment of US$13 million by Russian investors, is situated some 30 minutes east of Santo Domingo and 15 minutes from Las Americas International Airport.
It is also one hour west of La Romana, the easternmost city that is home to Casa de Campo, one of the Caribbean’s most exclusive resorts. The park, built on 44,000 square-meters of land, features 80-feet tall water slides.
The park is situated alongside the highway that links Santo Domingo to the Punta Cana and La Romana tourism regions.
Currently built on 44,000 square meters, the park will eventually occupy 65,000 square meters in its second phase of construction.
Fun With Slides
The park features 17 different water slides of various lengths and heights. The pools are purified by using modern purification systems. In total, the park has nine pools, three major water slides – one is 82 feet tall – and a playground with six slides and other fun water attractions.
The park is open Wednesday thru Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The entrance fee is US$47 for adults and US$37.50 for children.
In its second phase, the project will feature a 400-room hotel and beach apartments that will be distributed in three, eight-story buildings.
