  • The park is great although not all attractions were available due to Covid. We saw twice the dolphin show which is fantastic. Palmitos Park is one of the best places to visit in Gran Canaria.  more »

  • This was a fantastic place to go with the family. The bird show was great and the birds were great to see flying out. The dolphin show was so well put together and rehearsed that it was faultless. Parrot show was a great laugh and again was faultless. Alot of time spent by the keepers and there is a great variety of other animals to see. The shop wasn't badly priced either again with a good selection to choose from.
  • I absolutely loved Palmitos Park! It's a great place for both families with children and singles. There's an opportunity to attend various animal shows such as parrot, Eagle or dolphin show which were excellent. I really liked the way you could enter a caged green area where parrots were and observe them from the close. Food was good too. I would highly recommend a visit to Palmitos Park for those who love wildlife and a bit of exotic greenery too!
