Lonely Planet review

Travelling around Tenerife you’ll encounter so many posters, flags and stickers advertising the Loro Parque 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 different species (and sub-species) of parrots (the world’s largest collection) all in one place? But while parrots are the raison d’être of the park, today its animal portfolio has grown to include tigers, gorillas and chimpanzees, but for many people the real highlights are the penguin house complete with ‘real’ snow, the subterranean aquarium with the world’s longest submarine tunnel and the dolphin and orca shows. There are also a variety of other attractions including a new HD cinema. The park is undeniably a highly impressive day out, but in our opinion it’s more of a theme park than a serious conservation effort (although they do have the Loro Parque Fundacion, which supports conservation projects around the world). 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.
