Three Top Waterparks in Tenerife

There are many reasons to visit Tenerife. Great beaches, busy resorts, a picturesque landscape and waterparks! The latter reason has and continues to make this Canary Island immensely popular with families.

There are three waterparks that are worth taking a closer look at – they all offer something different but they are all great for a family day out when on holiday on Tenerife.

Lago Martianez

This isn’t a typical waterpark, in fact it is more a set of swimming pools, but that doesn’t really do them justice. Fountains, different pools and even saltwater pools make this an ideal venue for a family day out as there is something for everyone.

It is also quite eye-catching, even at night when fountain displays can be quite breathtaking.

Like Lago Martianez, Aqualand has something for everyone including a wildlife park. There are many pools to cater for all ages but it is the live dolphin shows that prove to be such a hit.

There is even a floating giant tap that the kids will love.

It’s not all about dolphins though as there is plenty of marine life to see and even birds of prey.

Siam Park

But we just had to save the best ‘til last – Siam Water Park. It is world renowned and rightly so.

Oriental décor stretches everywhere in this hug waterpark with paths lead to numerous pools.

There are many different activities too like walking on water (or zorbing as it is officially known).

Holidaymakers staying at the Hotel Bitacora and Waterpark in Playa de Las Americas can, from this summer (2013), enjoy unlimited daily access to the waterpark!
