Voted the number one thing to do in Maspalomas on TripAdvisor is Palmitos Park. It's a paradise for families and nature lovers complete with bird displays, beautiful rare plants and different species of monkeys. There's also a huge aquarium with two sections of fresh water and salt water species. Dolphins are a huge part of the Palmitos Park experience, head for the dolphinarium and you'll see these beautiful creatures in action. The park also offers an interactive experience with dolphins, which is your chance to get up close to them as you're able to go to the water's edge and stroke them. More importantly it offers an education into the life of a dolphin at Palmitos Park, the care it takes to look after them and the conservation efforts that the park does to help protect the species Other attractions include a butterfly house and a cactus garden; you could spend a whole day wandering around the attractions, it promises a fun-filled and educational family day out.
