Tenerife Attractions - Loro Parque

Loro Parque started life as a Parrot park in tenerife some time ago, over the years the park has added more and more animals and shows to become one of the largest attractions in Tenerife today.

Loro Park was founded in 1972 by Wolfgang Kiessling, at this time the park was only 13,000 m² and only contained 150 parrots, the parrot show which was called "Loro Show" was the first of it's kind in Europe.

Over the year more and more animals were added and of course the park increased in size. Loro Park has a strong influence from the Disney Parks in Florida when it comes to the whale, dolphin and sea lion shows.

One of the most impressive parts to this attraction is the 'Planet Penguin'. The area is home to the largest freezer in the world and is home to many different types of Penguins.

Along with Penguins you will also be able to see dolphins, monkeys, tigers and parrots to name but a few.

The park which is surprisingly found in the middle of Puerto de la Cruz is set in rich green settings, parking is limited but there is a free 'train' that drives around the town and will pick you up and take you to the park.

Loro Parque is open to the public from 08:30 till 18:45 (last entrance is 16:00 though), the free train runs every 20 minutes from Puerto del la Cruz.

Adult: €33
