Palmitos Park in Gran Canaria is a lovely day out for the whole family and very educational at the same time.
There you will find lots of different and exotic animals, birds, reptiles, dolphins and species from every continent!
GCBLOG's favourites are the Meercats and the Birds and Eagles at the top of the hill and not forgetting the dolphins! The botanical gardens, butterfly house and tropical, lush surroundings give it that jungle feel.

In 2007 a fire devastated the island, which led to a refurbishment and addition of the dolphin arena, where you watch a show and even have your photograph taken with Flipper!
