Selvatica has a reputation

What is it?

Well, we, ourselves, could tell you…

Our reputation is that of being the best in the business. Hands down.

But would you believe us?

Sure. A lot of companies say they’re the best.

It’s why Selvatica is Trip Advisor’s # 1 outdoor activity in Cancun.

Polaris ATV

That’s why we love the Polaris ATV.

The Polaris brand represents the peak of ATV tours in Cancun. When it comes to offroading in Cancun, you better have a Polaris.

But you may be wondering…

Aren’t all ATVs just the same thing?

That would be like saying all cars are built the same. Clearly, there are huge differences. The same goes for ATVs.

What to expect with a Polaris ATV when offroading in Cancun

Maybe there’s someone in your group thinking…

I don’t know. Isn’t off-roading really rough?  I don’t think I can handle an ATV tour in Cancun.

If this is the case, reassure them. Polaris ATVs are a completely different breed. Sure. If you WANT things to be rough… a Polaris all-terrain vehicle will handle anything you throw at it.

But sometimes people prefer are a more gentle ride. Don’t be surprised if after riding a Polaris ATV, they say…

I wish my car handled like a Polaris!

Want to know what specifically makes a Polaris ATV the best in the business?

Here are 5 reasons to go with a Polaris ATV when offroading in Cancun

Polaris all terrain vehicle- atv tour in cancun at selvatica

  1. Polaris engineers, don’t just build the ATVs; they are ATV enthusiasts. The final product reflects this.
  2. With the most responsive power steering available, you always have complete control. You’ll never get steering fatigue.
  3. Perhaps the best part of a Polaris ATV is its unrivaled suspension. Prepare yourself for the SMOOTHEST ride you’ve ever had in a vehicle, period.
  4. With a high ground clearance and independent rear suspension, you won’t have to worry about getting stuck in any potholes.
  5. Just tap the gas pedal for commanding power to dominate any terrain you find in the Mayan jungle.

The bottom line is when you take a Cancun ATV tour…

Ventura Park Lowers Prices for Local & Mexican Visitors

Ventura Park Now Has New Prices for Local & National Mexican Visitors

Ventura Park - Cancun amusement park perfect for families

What’s new with Ventura Park?

Ventura Park, the best waterpark in Cancun, just made some big changes to their national/local pricing scheme.

In order to reward the Mexican tourists from all over the country who make their way to Cancun, Ventura Park has made things MUCH less expensive.

The first big change to Ventura Park’s prices

Well, the first change is, Mexican’s don’t need to exchange their MXN pesos into American Dollars USD. It’s not a secret the exchange rate has been changing rapidly.

This causes unnecessary complications for Mexican tourists.

So, if you’re Mexican, you can buy your tickets to Ventura Park with pesos. This gives your vacation budget some much needed clarity and certainty.

The second big change to Ventura Park’s prices

If you’re a Mexican national, the adult entry price is 750 MXN pesos. That’s it!

This gives you access to these Ventura Park Worlds + food & non-alcoholic beverages

  1. Aaahventura
  2. Wet’n Wild
  3. Fun World

Access to Dolphinaris, Grand Prix, and Underworld are sold separately.

The best part?

Mexican children only pay 500 MXN pesos!

This allows the whole family to have a magical time at the only theme park in the Hotel Zone.

The third big change to Ventura Park’s prices

If you are an adult resident of Quintana Roo, things are getting EVEN less expensive.

You get the same deal mentioned above, except you only pay 499 MXN pesos for adults. That’s an absolute steal!

For children from Quintana Roo, the price is a shockingly low 350 MXN pesos.

“With this new pricing scheme, we seek to simplify our offer and at the same time bring a unique experience to a larger share of potential visitors, to both the local market and the tourism market.

This one-of-a-kind offer for our multi-attraction park, plus the advantages that the Mexican public will find using our national currency, we believe this positions us as a very unique and attractive option in this beautiful destination”

2017: Dolphinaris Foundation Participates in Laguna de Términos en Campeche Project

2017: Dolphinaris Foundation Participates in Laguna de Términos en Campeche Project

dolphinaris-foundation-conservation-campeche

 

For the 3rd consecutive year, Dolphinaris participated in the Laguna de Terminos Project in Campeche. Dolphinaris had the pleasure of partnering with Universidad Autónoma del Carmen (UNACAR).

The Amikoo Foundation helped by donating funds for the project.

What is the Laguna de Términos en Campeche Project?

dolphinaris-foundation-conservation-health-assessment-project-on-free-ranging-dolphins

The Laguna de Términos en Campeche Project involves examining, evaluating, and recording the health status of the bottlenose dolphins living in the area.

Why is this so important?

With this data collected, qualified scientists can infer the amount of environmental pollution in the area.

Why Laguna de Términos en Campeche?

Here you can find one of the densest populations of wild bottlenose dolphins in the world. The reason for this is, the rich abundance of resources in the lagoon. This allows the entire food-chain to flourish.

This makes it the perfect area to perform an evaluation, for not only the region, but all of Mexico.

If diseases, poor health, or significant pollution is detected in the region, or in its marine life, we can safely assume this is a warning signal for the rest of Mexico. If not the world.

In other words, this project is not only important for Campeche, but everyone else as well.

How Dolphinaris Helps

dolphinaris-aquavet-iii-ultrasonography

Dolphinaris’ participation is key in the whole process. We provide vast dolphin care experience. Our trainers and veterinarians make up our highly qualified team. We apply the same proven techniques we have used when collecting samples at our dolphinarium.

This way, we can ensure that no wild dolphin is harmed in any way.

Here’s how the procedure works

First, we implement some safety guidelines.

  1. Work with one animal at a time.
  2. Avoid groups containing offspring
  3. Go no further than 13 feet deep
  4. Monitor the dolphin’s vitals at all times
  5. Return dolphin to water whenever necessary
  6. Use only sterile equipment
  7. Implement only the least invasive procedures possible

And of course, the most important safety guideline of all: treat the mammals with professionalism and respect.

The Results

dolphinaris-foundation-conservation-dolphins-sample-collection

Thanks to these investigations, we have been able to determine that the dolphins in the region have a significant concentration of pesticides.

Unfortunately, these toxins weaken their immune and endocrine system. This leaves them vulnerable to diseases.

The good news is, now that we know, we can pass this information on to the proper scientists. They in turn, can develop a strategy that will help reduce this sort of pollution in the future.

The Future

Dolphinaris is proud to participate in this unprecedented conservation event. This research is not only important for our dolphinarium, but the ecosystem of Laguna de Términos, and of the entire state of Mexico.

Beach Cleaning by Dolphinaris

Then it should come as no surprise that this April 1, 2017, Dolphinaris spearheaded a beach-cleaning initiative in the Riviera Maya.

This is important because millions of pounds of trash can be found at beaches every day!

Where did it happen?

The Dolphinaris Team met up in the hotel zone in Cancun, at the public beach Chacmol.

What did they find?

  • Cigarette butts
  • Plastic bottles
  • Glass bottles
  • Thermal jars
  • Aluminum cans

How much trash was found?

In total the Dolphinaris Team collected over 103 pounds!

The Dolphinaris Challenge: How can you help?

Dolphinaris invites everyone to lend a helping hand in keeping the Riviera Maya beaches the most beautiful in the world.

Not only will this help everyone safely enjoy the beaches. But it will protect marine fauna from our trash.

Want to help, but not sure how to proceed?

Here are 5 ways you can keep beaches clean in the Riviera Maya

  1. Make sure you bring your own trash receptacle. Bring several large heavy-duty black trash bags.

Why? Because the beach area may not have a trash receptacle.

  1. When you come to the beach, bring a reusable plastic bottle.

Not only will it most likely keep your drink cooler for a longer period of time, but through time, it will keep the ocean cleaner.

  1. Don’t throw cigarette butts into the sand!

Try using an empty can instead.

  1. Don’t enter the water with plastic objects (like toys, frisbies, etc)

If you must, be sure that all plastic objects stay with you, and not in the ocean.

  1. Do an inventory before you leave

Be sure to ask yourself: Am I leaving with everything that I came with?
