Welcome to the wonderful world of adventure, fun, entertainment, animals and birds – Loro Parque is one of the Canary Island’s top spots for a day trip. Located in Puerto de la Cruz in the north of Tenerife, this exciting park is packed with colourful parrots, is home to the best dolphin and orca shows on the island and houses Planet Penguin where these cute creatures splash around in Antarctic conditions.
Since opening in 1972, more than 19 million visitors have passed through its doors and it has expanded into a renowned attraction that promises a fantastic day out for all the family.
Orca Ocean was also introduced to Loro Parque in 2006 and has become one of the park’s showpieces. Working alongside Sea World in the USA, this project has successfully bred four orcas in captivity, which live in one of the most modern installations in the world consisting of 22.5 million litres of seawater. They work very closely with the orca trainers and every day they show off their skills in front of the crowds at Loro Parque. In addition, you can also watch sea lions and dolphins.
Around every corner, you will find cute animals, funny birds, amazingly talented creatures, colourful marine life and much more. Loro Parque deserves its ranking as one of Tenerife’s most visited attractions – spend a day here and you will see why.
Loro Park is open from 08:30 to 18:45 (last entrance at 16:00) all year round.
