This is a beautiful park but I wish they would close the zoo. It is a bit sad. The animals don't look that well cared for.

I've been here before and stayed in the cabins. It's an excellent place, so different. The food in the cafe is really good too. Cabins are a little uncomfortable but the kids love the 'house on the prairie' feel of it. Pool is really good...More

To get there you need to travel 11.5km along a challenging road with multiple hairpin bends and inclines probably close to 1:6 in steepness at times. If not used to driving on the right you might find it a bit scary. Once there the views...More

This drive is great for scenery and to eat mountain game - you get an idea of inland Costa Tropical and some of the villages and fruit deposits, instead of being just a beach-bum. If you don't like twisty roads, you may prefer not to...More

This park is high up and secluded after just a short and beautiful, if rather disorientating drive from Almunecar. Despite having come from warmer places the animals seem to love it there. It might help that they don't get many visitors, at least not in...More
