“Lovely family day out - dolphin show a must see”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Really lovely wildlife park with a good variety of shows the dolphin show is a must see and for 20 euros you can have a photo taken with a dolphin, also very good exotic bird and parrot shows, very scenic walk with lots of shade for the hot days apart from when at the dolphin show and bird shows.

“fantastic”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Loved everything and dolphins were beautiful.Do the parrot show as soon as you enter to your right because the raptor show is at the top of the ravine, the dolphins on far end and there is little time to get between the timed shows unless you plan ahead.It is a much bigger place than you think.Take a bottle of water,a hat and sunscreen because you are out in the full sun at raptor and dolphin shows.

“Sunshine and lots to see”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Quite a drive out from Maspalomas but well worth it. Lots to see and do. The scenery when you reach the top is fantastic and watching the bird of prey display from there is a must. Spent most of the day there. Quite dry and was also quite glad to get back to the pool as it was a hot day.

“Lovely excursion”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The shows are brilliant, birds of prey was very impressive. i've never seen a bald eagle spread it's wings flying over a canyon, brought tears to my eyes. If you see the dolphin show, be sure to also get a "kiss the dolphin picture" for 5 Euros. Just be VERY aware that the poolfloor you step out on, is VERY VERY slippery and don't discovered that the hard way, like I did and had to go to the ER with my wrist. Still, I consider it worth it as I got the best dolphin kissing picture! The zoo itself is maybe not THAT impressive, but it's a nice day out. It's very hilly and un-even, so if you're disabled it might be a bit trying to get to the top.

“Parrot show is a must”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Second time for us in the park and enjoyed it as much as first trip. The shows are timed well for smaller children as you can move from one to the next without too much time hanging around in between. Kids enjoyed the dolphins, but loved the parrot show. Enjoyed the aquarium and the rest of the animals. It's an enjoyable half day out - took public bus from Puerto Rico and booked tickets online about €140 for 5 adults, 2 kids and infant so it's not cheap. For kids, it's a nice day away from pool/beach. It's a bit of a workout pushing buggy through hilly areas. Drinks and ice-creams way overpriced and too much distance between areas to purchase drinks when kids are complaining they are thirsty! In saying that, we would return.
