Travel with Children

There’s plenty going on for children on the island. Several of the Manrique sights should keep them suitably gobsmacked, while the southern resorts have plenty of kiddie-geared activities. Museum-wise, try the Museo de la Piratería in Teguise. The island’s most touted attraction is Guinate Tropical Park, with its birds, aquarium, botanical garden and various shows. There are plenty of sea-themed activities, in addition to the ubiquitous glass-bottom boats. Submarine Safaris in Puerto Calero submerges to the watery depths, while high riders can contact Paracraft, which offers parascending (10 minutes, €50). If the sea starts to pall, Costa Teguise’s Aquapark has the usual assortment of rides and slides.
