Loro Park (Loro Parque)
Tenerife’s Loro Park (Loro Parque), one of the island’s biggest attractions, is home to an all-star lineup of animals, including tigers, chimpanzees, sloths, otters, sea lions, and one of the world’s largest collections of parrots. Plants lovers will enjoy the Orchidarium—home to more than 1,000 orchids year-round.
It’s hard to visit Tenerife without seeing the Loro Park flag fluttering around the island. Choose from among a few ticket options, including a basic admission ticket, a Premium ticket with included Discovery Tour and reserved show seats, or a dual-admission ticket to Loro Park and the nearby Siam Park water park. For a hassle-free day, book a ticket with roundtrip transfer from your Tenerife hotel. Those pressed for time can opt for a full-day tour of the island that includes both Loro Park and Teide National Park.
