Something fun for the kids and perfect for family days out, Mundomar is a popular tropical-themed animal park in Benidorm. Usually open from February to December, it is home to more than 80 different species of animal. Whilst the main focus is on the marine animals like dolphins, sea lions and penguins, there are also many types of birds including parrots and toucans, plus meerkats, lemurs and porcupines.

There’s more to this park than just the animals, the surrounding gardens are a show stopper too. They feature a whole host of lush plants and colourful flowers, complete with man-made waterfalls and ponds.

To keep the kids occupied in between seeing the animals, there’s a playground for them to run around. There are a couple of slides and a climbing frame that will have your little ones burning off some of their energy.
