Visit Tenerifes Aqua Parks
Tenerife's Aqua Parks make a fabulous day out for families. Siam Park is fairly new and has some amazing attractions. Aqualand has not got such impressive pools and rides but it has an extremely good dolphin show.

Siam Park, Tenerife
Siam Park claims to be the best water park in Europe and they are probably right. Travelling round the park the buildings and amusements as well as the lush tropical planting all have a Siamese theme and the attractions are quite spectacular. Siam Park was opened in 2008 by Her Royal Highness the Princess of Thailand.
There is a pool with waves which are the largest man made waves in the world. The picture above is of the dizzying 'Tower of Power' where you 'drop' 28 meters before plunging into the pool below. For the less adventurous meander slowly around the 'Mai Tai River' in a water tyre. There are lots of attractions so you are certain to find something to suit you. There is also a Sea-Lion island where you can watch sea-lions playing in the water.
Continuing the Thai theme there is a Thai floating market and Thai food as well as the more usual theme park fare is available in the restaurants.

Aqualand is older than Siam Park and its water rides are considerably less impressive. However it is cheaper to enter and has an extremely good dolphin show.
Dolphin land at Aqualand has been designed so that you can see the dolphins underwater as well as from the surface and there is a dolphin show every afternoon.
Like Siam Park there are lots of sunbeds, restaurants and cafes and also like Siam Park there is a free bus service from the resorts at Los Cristianos, Playa de las Americas and Costa Adeje.
