Terra Natura has a promising collection - there is a decent variety of species kept at the park - and although the majority of the facilities are adequate, a number of the major exhibits are not.

The cat facilities in particular were awful, with Sumatran Tiger, Asian Lion, Jaguar and Ocelot in small enclosures devoid of enrichment. The Bengal Tiger facility was a minor improvement but was still rather uninspiring.

The whole place, whilst branding itself as 'immersive', is very barren and un-inventive. With such a large site and influx of visitors from the resort of Benidorm, there was potential to build something great here - of a similar calibre to Bioparc Valencia (1 hr 30 up the road, significantly cheaper and well worth a visit) - but the whole place seems to be thrown together, more about quantity of species than quality of facilities.

A special mention must also be given to the dreadful catering: the only restaurant offering a vegetarian main course was closed on our visit.

Lots to see at this zoo with various shows including the birds of prey show. You could spend a full day here quiet happily.
The elephants looked a little demented bashing their heads off doors but all in all a good day out. Very reasonable priced.

Nestled in the mountains overlooking Benidorm are several theme parks one of which is the lovely Terra Natura. We arrived as the park was opening at ten am and the parking was easy. We strolled around the park following the yellow arrows painted on the paths guiding you through the lands of America, Asia and Europe. The whole place including the animals looks well kept and there are boards explaining everything about the animals and plants you are looking at. We ate at Terraceratops snack bar at lunchtime.....only disappointment was that it didn't open till 12.30...Why??? and my 20 month old grandson wanted his lunch at 12. The other eating places looked just as good and the toilet facilities were well signed and clean. The children's play area had some unusual play things including some interactive ones and even fun ones for daft photo opportunities. We were there till four pm and wished we had had enough time to take advantage of the aqua park as it was very hot and it looked very inviting but we will come prepared next time...and living just 30 minutes north of Benidorm there will definitely be a next time and many more. I just wonder why for the last fifteen years we have never been here before?
