Day trips recommended with a 5 year old !

Hello fellow TA's,

We are staying for 5 nights from may 05 in Marbella. Please can you suggest which day trips would you recommend. we are planning to hire a car for the stay. Not really interested in the cathedrals etc. Would love to explore towns,beaches, small villages and unique places

Is seville and cordoba good option?

Please suggest

Best

One trip your 5 year old is sure to enjoy is a visit to the Bioparc in Fuengirola. How about taking a trip to Mijas first and then on to the Bioparc and maybe the beach after?

Or go up to Estepona to Selwo Aventura - a safari type park

They also have Selwo marina in Benalmadena and the Telecabina ride up the mountain where there are birds of prey displays and stunning views. They sometimes do special deals to cover all three attractions.

Next to Selwo Marina is the lovely Paloma Parque - its free and has rabbits and sometimes guinea pigs running free, its a lovely way to spend a few hours, play areas for the children, cafes and a lake as well.

There is also Tivoli World in Benalmadena which is an evening attraction so it might be a bit late if you are in Marbella but worth checking to see what's on.
