Loro Parque Tenerife

tenerife zoo loro park

Loro Parque is probably one of the finest theme parks you will find in Europe, with lots of animals from different species. Visiting the park is a great idea for families with kids, but adults will enjoy it just as much. 

The park is situated in the north of Tenerife, in the city of Puerto de la Cruz.

There are lots of things to see and do in Loro Park, like exhibitions and shows, so you could opt for a 2 days ticket. This way, you can take your time during the visit and allow time for the children to spend time in the play areas.

Our opinions about the park and the shows

Our favorite attraction was the Sea Lions Show, which had very lively music and funny moments.

One of the best exhibits in Loro Parque is Planet Penguin, which claimes to be the world's largest penguinarium. It was indeed impressive and you can spend a lot of time watching the penguins without getting bored.

Katandra Treetops is another unique attraction to the park, a free-flight aviary where you enter and watch the birds up close. As you climb the stairs through the tree you see different species of birds and it's a very special experience to see them flying freely around you.

For visitors interested in Botanics and plants, there is an exhibition of Orchids, from rare types, that are very hard to see anywhere else. The entire park features vegetation specific to the Canary Islands and also ficus, ivy and palms, which can be seen in the Jungle Ara area, a true oasis inside Loro Park.

Kinderlandia is a special place dedicated to kids, where they can explore and have fun while the parents can enjoy a break at the nearby bar called Bambu bar.

If you want to see all the park and the shows, then you must arrive in the morning, because it will take you several hours to go through everything.

If you get tired you can take a break for lunch at one of the restaurants in the park. There are several places where you can eat and the food is good and at reasonable prices.

Just take the time to walk through the park and enjoy all the attractions and scenery. It's a great day out for people of all ages because the park is so well put together, with maximum attention to detail and plenty of things to do and see.
