Jungle Park is close to Los Cristianos, in the south of Tenerife. Visitors can walk through among cactuses, palms, various flowering trees and shrubs. Kids can visit caves, walk on hanging bridges, and just stay on playgrounds. You can meet monkeys, penguins, hippos, crocodiles and many other animals including amazing birds of prey. You can also take a bobsled ride or walk through rope obstacle course (Jungle Raid).
Monkey Park on Tenerife is small but very interesting. There you can feed and pet furry green monkeys and lemurs, and watch other animals such turtles and parrots. Children love this park! It is better to come in the morning or in the evening because monkeys and lemurs are asleep during the day.
Siam Water Park is a great place for thrill-seekers. The park has the steepest slide, the most extreme slide, the longest slide, large swimming pool and white sand beach, in winter the water is heated to 24 degrees. Also the park attracts many surfers. It has the biggest artificial wave reaching three meters. Kids can have fun in the children’s corner of The Lost City, which has small slides and waterfalls. The park is huge, and it would take you the whole day to go around. You can watch various performances including sea lions shows. Just do not forget the sun protection (sunscreen, panama, etc.) because there is a lot of sun even during winter months.
Not far from the large water park “Siam” you can find Aqualand. It has some water slides even for little kids. It runs a dolphin show that is recognized to be the best in the world, which starts daily at 3:30 pm. There are free shuttles from hotels in Playa de las Américas and Los Cristianos
