Rancho Texas Animal Park
Rancho Texas Animal Park is bursting with a fantastic range of activities that will keep both little kids and big kids entertained all day long. It is primarily an animal centre, home to exotic birds and reptiles as well as classic farm animals. Bird of prey shows are regular throughout the day, so make sure to catch one and admire the majestic winged creatures in flight. The fun doesn’t stop there – visitors can interact up-close with friendly dolphins or sea lions during an experience booking.
If you’re keen to spend even more time in the water during your visit to this attraction, take a trip to the pool and game area, specifically built for families. Parents can enjoy soaking up the rays using the sunbeds and umbrellas, while the children take a splash in the pool and enjoy the two enormous slides which twist and turn, mimicking the volcanic Canarian landscape. Enjoy a delicious meal and refreshing drink at the multiple terrace and bar areas onsite – you can easily spend an entire day at this park!
Aquapark Costa Teguise
An absolute treat for the ‘big kids’ in the family, Aquapark Costa Teguise is the perfect day out for adrenaline junkies and thrill-seekers. Jump in to whatever takes your fancy, whether you’ve never tried it before or you’re a seasoned pro. Here are a few activities that are available:
• Paintballing • Ziplines • Obstacle course • Go-karting • Climbing wall
True to its name, the site also boasts a multitude of opportunities to get wet, including rapids, slides, jacuzzies and lakes, so don’t forget to pack your swimsuit! If you’re bringing the youngsters with you, there is a fantastic play area for toddlers featuring smaller slides and a colourful ball pool. Plus, there are several spots to grab a bite during your visit so you can keep the family satisfied throughout the day.
Aqualava Playa Blanca
Aqualava Playa Blanca is the newest of the attractions but has already earned itself a great reputation. Its innovative design takes full advantage of the fabulous volcanic scenery of the island as it shapes its slides and pools around the natural slopes and contours of the environment.
In-keeping with their objective to be respectful to the natural landscape, all pools onsite are heated using geothermal energy, and offer bus services to and from the park to save on emissions and cost. The company also strive to provide quality and healthy food in their restaurants, so you can enjoy a sustainable but endlessly fun day out.
Lanzarote Resorts Perfect for Families
After a long day of watery fun, you’ll want to head back to a comfortable holiday home to sit back and relax. Arguably one of the best Lanzarote resorts is H10 Lanzarote Princess, which sits close to the seafront and has been recently renovated. Tailored specifically to families, this hotel features a free gym, several restaurants, games rooms and even mini-disco! Pus, if you don’t fancy venturing offsite to one of the nearby adventure parks, the hotel has its very own water centre with colourful slides for the children to enjoy.
Dive in and experience what this enchanting island has to offer for your next family holiday; you’re sure to have a swimmingly good time!
