1. Jolly Roger Pirate Show

What child would not love to see an epic battle between pirates? They will fight with swords, cannons explode, there will be pyrotechnics, they will do fantastic stunts and comedy. This interactive show takes place in a replica of the caravel Santa María. The experience will not only be incredible for the children; adults will also have fun with the show, the open bar and the delicious dinner (they offer lobster!). And for the little ones they have the super pirate menu!

4. Dolphinaris

As the name suggests, this is a dolphinarium where people of any age can experience swimming with dolphins. The coaches are patient and if children get scared, they take the time little by little to introduce them to the activities with the beautiful animals and they will never pressure your children to rush to get the next child. Here they let you spend a long time with the dolphins, unlike other places. You can even book a private hour with a trainer and two dolphins!

There are many pools with special areas for children that include jacuzzis, children's club where they offer activities such as gastronomy, crafts, soccer, surfing in the pool, trivia, theater shows, magician, a game room... it is impossible for a child to get bored here! In addition, the people who work there are trained to make sure that children are never at risk as well as being very friendly.
