Loro Parque information
Travelling around Tenerife, the Loro Parque flag is so ubiquitous that you could be forgiven for thinking they sponsor Tenerife. But we’ll give them their dues because where else can you see over 350 species of parrots (the world’s largest collection) at once? Today its animal portfolio has grown to include tigers, gorillas and chimpanzees. Note that the park also keeps captive orcas and dolphins, which perform in shows; however, research indicates such captivity is debilitating and stressful for these creatures, and is exacerbated by human interaction.
Other exhibits include a penguin house complete with ‘real’ snow and a subterranean aquarium with the world’s longest submarine tunnel. There is also a variety of other attractions including an HD cinema. You could walk here from town, but it’s much easier to hop on the free train that leaves every 20 minutes from outside McDonalds on Plaza Reyes Católicos.
