Take the kids to Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park

A day at the Wild West themed Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park is one of the best things for families to do in Playa Blanca. It’s only half an hour’s drive away, up the coast in Puerto del Carmen, and is just the place for the kids to let off steam.

There’s all sorts of wildlife, mostly rescued, from parrots and eagles to komodo dragons and white tigers, but it’s not just a zoo. So when you’ve seen the sea lions and met the tiny horses in the petting zoo, swap your shorts for swimsuits and let loose at the water park. You could even go canoeing if you fancy it.

Don’t miss the chance to stay into the evening for one of the most fun nights out you can have in the whole of Lanzarote – the Wild West dinner show at the park’s Wild Horse Saloon. Line dancing, horse-riding cowboys, lasso tricks, a barbecue and free-flowing soft drinks, beer and sangria; what’s not to like?
