Owner description: Bioparc Fuengirola champions a new model of park based on respect for nature and the preservation of natural species, a model which has already established itself as a flagship for Europe. What Bioparc Fuengirola represents is a different concept of park, a zoological park where animals live side-by-side, recreating their natural habitats, under the concept zoo-imersion. The park is home to more than 200 species, the most of them endangered or already have the risk to be endangered .Bioparc Fuengirola take them in programs to promote and guarantee the surviving of the specie. At the same time that Bioparc makes this job, visitors have the chance to discover such exclusives and uniques species like Sumatra Tiger, just there is 300 freedom specimen or Roloway monkeys, the only ones in Spain and ones of the 28 specimen that exist in captivity round the world That's why the park is one of the best parks in Europe and visit the Costa del Sol has the idea in itself of visiting this amazing park. Take breath inside of tropical forests and catch the chance to fall in love one more time with Costa del Sol with Bioparc Fuengirola.

“top quality zoo”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

This is one of the best kept zoo's I have ever been to, both the park and the enclosures are meticulously kept and was a joy to walk round. Although not the biggest zoo all the animals look content and well looked after, the café is clean and well stocked not very cheap but you expect this my only complaint is the cost of entry at 80 euros for two adults and a child ouch.
Finally we where pleasantly surprised at the cost of photos taken on entry just 10 euros for three pictures well done.

“Lovely small zoo.”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

Nice Zoo but not so big. Loved the chimps and the big silver back.
Get clise to the crocs at the glass window.
Typical Spain though as they try to take your pic for extra cash.
Could be round it pretty quick so take your time and meander round.

“A fantastic place for all the family”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Had not been to the Fuengirola Bioparc since the 1980s/1990s with my children so it was quite a novelty to take my grandchildren there.
We arrived around 12.00hrs and there was a bit of a queue to get the entrance tickets but all went very smoothly (although unfortunately with the cost of the tickets at 17.00€ for adults it must impact on the number of visitors). There is however a season ticket that can be purchased for locals.
There is a photographer at the entrance and you can view and purchase the images when leaving for approx. 5€. The park is very well laid out and offers something for everyone...the park seems to do their best to provide a good environment for the animals and yet still allow visitors to get reasonably close to them. The park offers a show with a message at 13.00hrs in the forest clearing which the children and adults alike absolutely loved...and had everyone fully attentive for the 20 minutes duration. There is also a regular trip inside the big baobab tree which allows smaller groups of people to get up closer to some of the animals. There was a strolling African music group playing, a children's playground and a restaurant. During the summer the park is open during the evening and I would think it would be wonderful as during the heat of the day a few of the animals were quite smart and took refuge in the shade ! With everything from cockroaches to bats, crocodiles to gorillas and komodo dragons, tigers and monkeys this really is a fantastic place for all the family.

“Good zoo ”
Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

Good selection of animals. Was so warm most were staying to the shade and either lethargic or asleep. Maybe best to visit later in the day in the summer months when temps drop.
