This amazing animal park in the north of the island is Tenerife's top attraction. The entrance fee is not cheap but considering you get a a full day out, the ticket is good value. The dolphin and orca show is particularly thrilling and the penguins even have their own glacier to cavort on. There are also sea lions, gorillas and tigers to see, each in a lovingly maintained micro-climate. Loro Parque just might be the most entertaining and ecologically sound zoo you will ever visit. For those planning on going to Siam Park, a combined ticket is available that provides a good discount on entry. Tip: bring your own food and drink; and catch the free train from Puerto De La Cruz.
