We chose to go to Terra Natura whilst staying in Spain because the weather was uncharacteristically cloudy with a threat of rain, so not pool or beach weather. We went at the end of August and were very pleasantly surprised by how quiet it was. No queues!! This also meant there was no need to hire our own floats as there were plenty we could use that were free.
Our children are 10 and 12; perfect ages for Terra Natura. They went on all the slides and made some use of the lazy river and swimming pool. We didn't go in the lazy river again as there was something floating in it that wasn't very pleasant!!
There is a lovely family atmosphere at Terra Natura and the staff were welcoming and friendly.
It cost us 90 euros on the first day and we had the option to go back on 2 consecutive days. We came back the next day to go to the zoo. This was laid out brilliantly and we bought food to feed some of them with. We stopped for a drink at the Lunatic express which is a very impressive looking new restaurant over looking the animals. Unfortunately the menu was very limited and far too expensive for us to stay for something to eat. We took a picnic on both days we were there. We liked the fact there was a dedicated picnic area which meant that there wasn't food on the floor around where you were swimming or sunbathing.
The highlight of the two days was swimming with the Sea lions - a very special experience for the kids. We were told on entry to the park that our ticket included everything and when we showed our ticket at the Sea lions we were let in. But, when we turned up the next day we were told it was an extra 30 euros each!! The photos of you with a Sea lion was another 6 euros.
Because of the weather we didn't hire sun loungers and we were busy all the time we were there so they would have been a waste of money.
I wouldn't necessarily recommend the park to families with children under 120cm as this would mean not being able to go on any slides and the other swimming activities were limited. They would love the zoo though.
We would go again and it was the highlight of our kids holiday!
