Siam Park and Loro Parque, two of Tenerife’s most popular theme parks, have been honoured in TripAdvisor’s highly-acclaimed 2017 Travellers’ Choice Awards. The island’s Thai-themed water kingdom, Siam Park, has claimed the pole position as the world’s ‘Best Water Park’, for the fourth consecutive year, while animal paradise Loro Parque has also claimed the top spot as the world’s ‘Best Zoological Park’. The popular Travellers’ Choice Awards celebrate the best attractions across the globe based on the reviews of millions of travellers.
Loro Parque is a 13.5-hectare zoo on the outskirts of Puerto de la Cruz in Tenerife, which houses the most extensive and diverse reserve of animal and plant species. Earlier this year, Loro Parque received a ‘Humane Certified’ certificate from the renowned animal welfare organisation American Humane for its humane treatment of the animals, making it the first zoo in Europe to achieve this standard. Loro Parque’s efforts in the matters of the conservation of biodiversity were again recognised when it received a certificate for confirming 100% compliance to the Global Welfare for Animals in Tourism guidelines, which were set out by the Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA).
Siam Park, which is set against a backdrop of spectacular Thai architecture, is located in Costa Adeje, in the south of Tenerife. It recently unveiled its newest ride, Singha, which sees a three-man float propelled uphill and downhill through water before being catapulted along a winding 200 metre tunnel.
Holiday makers who are interested in visiting both Siam Park and Loro Parque while on holiday in Tenerife can take advantage of great savings by purchasing a “twin ticket” to access both parks. Prices start from £55 for adults and £38 for children (6-11 years old).
Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and one of the most popular and easily accessible holiday destinations for UK travellers. Guaranteed sunshine, diverse landscapes, idyllic beaches and charming villages make the island an ideal holiday choice all year round, while its vast array of fantastic activities, from year-round whale watching and stargazing on Spain’s tallest peak to caving adventures inside Europe’s largest lava tubes, ensure that the island’s variety of experiences are as unforgettable as its flavours and friendly people.
