Palmitos Park Maspalomas Gran Canaria

Barranco de los Palmitos, Maspalomas, Gran Canaria
Palmitos Park – Maspalomas

The Zoological Palmitos Park Maspalomas Gran Canaria is one of those activities you have to do at least one time while on holiday in Gran Canaria. If you live here, like us, you will probably go at least once or twice per year, usually when friends or family are visiting the island. It is a really peaceful experience looking at the animals in the lush gardens and valleys of the park. There are several shows, like bird shows, dolphin show, and a parrot show you should not miss while there. You will probably need at least 4 hours to see it all. You can take sandwiches along or simply eat at one of the restaurants or stands.

Brilliant day out, worth every penny! Fantastic bird show and dolphin show was great! Staff very friendly and welcoming! Very hilly so I’d advise comfy footwear. Lots of different animals to see. Food is quite pricey but very good quality and tasty! Perfect day out for all the family.

Honestly cannot fault this place. The eagle bird of prey show was fantastic and they are let free to roam the valleys until they decide to come back. Dolphin show was superb. The animals are very well looked after. It's position in the mountains looking down a valley is so beautiful. Would definitely go again.

Very nice place for a solo trip, couples, families... Everybody will find something for themselves to entertain. Clean, beautiful place, nice and helpful stuff. A lot of spots to sit and relax. Animals looked looked healthy, you can see that people care about them. I loved the dolphin show! It's amazing how the dolphin coaches communicated with those smart animals! Very entertaining! Also the Birds of prey show - beautiful animals showed in spectacular show.

As a zoo, I thought it was a neat and clean park with a landscape around the park that was one of the best I've seen. I think that some animals could have more space because the truth is that in the zoo I think there is space that is not used since they do not have a large number of animals. I would give the dolphin show a 5 out of 10, the best thing about the zoo is the bird of prey show I had never seen anything like it very well executed a 9 out of 10 . I found the butterfly area very difficult to see some. And the rest of the things in the zoo I think they can improve a lot. The best and if you like birds you can not miss the visit for the rest as I said before they can improve

Very difficult for a person in poor shape, but doable. The exotic birds show requires you to climb back up to the highest point and that was not going to happen. The birds of prey and dolphins were amazing and well worth the trek, though! If you buy your tickets online, you should download them to your phone because while my internet connection was fine my friend lost hers completely.Also you should consider taking lunch with you and eating it between the birds of prey and dolphins. There are many places on the way to sit and eat.
Really enjoyable day out. We could easily spend 4-5 hrs there with the different live displays. You can really see the ecological factor/learning that goes on with the animals and it's really nice to see the handlers with such passion for their animals.Would recommend the birds of prey show.All toilets had a baby change and were clean. Good gift shop which serves ice cream.We had a hire car but there is also a bus directly from Maspalomas.Restaurant is priced similar to the tourist locations but was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food (specifically the burger).

A great day out, especially for the amazing birds of prey show. I don't agree with the reviews suggesting the animals are badly treated as they all seemed well cared for to me. The dolphin show was fantastic but I do feel a bit unhappy about these wonderful, highly intelligent creatures being kept in captivity even in the favourable environment here. Only full meals were available in the main restaurant on my visit as the snack bar was drinks only for some reason.

Can add up to an expensive day outIf you choose to go for a dolphin experience (don't call it 'swimming with dolphins') then it can be expensive. If you were do this, then try and get an afternoon slot. If you book far enough in advance you can get to be part of the main show. The morning is busier with the stand crowded with people. We did it in the afternoon and there was only about a third of half as many people there. We paid for the ninety euro dolphin experience, and as there were fewer people doing it then our son and daughter were asked if they wanted to be part of the show! :)I can't help feeling though, that no matter how well looked after the animals and dolphins are (and you could tell the staff love their jobs and care for the animals), they don't have enough room. There was one lone wallaby in a compound by itself. I'm kinda thinking it was completely bored. A lot of the dolphins' fins were drooping to one side, which is apparently due to them not having as much room to swim about as they would have in the wild. So as much as my kids enjoyed it, I'm not sure I would want to go again.

The "bird show" was nice.I definitely suggest to increase the size of the monkey's territory.The female one shows certain behaviour disorders. She has been sitting next to the tree and hitting her back to the tree. Or she does this next to the wall also. Visible on her back's fur.Please also check the parrots. Some of them are not in a good shape. It can be the lack of sunshine and/or vitamins.Ensure bigger Caves for the bigger birds.The dolphins.I have never visited such kind of shows ever. This was the 1st and the last time also.Definitely they're the main attraction.And DO NOT NE AFRAID to write it out in bold letters "don't touch the glass", "silence please, Do not make a noise" etc.

Both the Bird of prey and the dolphin shows were excellent. We took bus number 45 from near out hotel in Maspalomas, return was €8.80 for 2 people. We also had lunch at the restaurant and it was reasonably priced. Lots of lovely animals to see.

Great day out, we got a taxi out & back. Was very handy. Park itself is extremely enjoyable. Our wee girl especially loved the Dolphins & fishes. Well worth visiting if your in the area.

Definitely worth a visit with the kids. The trail brings you up a hill to see the birds of prey show and then head down to the dolphin show, exotic birds and aquarium. If you get there early (when it opens) you can comfortably get to see everything on the way upto the birds of prey show which is definitely worth a visit. Grab a snack at the kiosk on the way up. The shop at the top is closed at the moment. The only problem is at the top there is no shade so can be very hot especially for young kids. Once the show is over you can head down to the restaurant area which is beside the exotic birds and dolphin show. €20 to have a picture taken with the dolphin and if you haven't booked it already you can get it directly after the show.

This is an amazing place to visit with your friends or family if you want to experience a great natural park! Make sure to plan at least 3 hours or more for your visit as there is so much to see! The park has plenty of animals with a heavy focus on birds and dolphins. Both - the dolphins and the birds' show are definitely WORTH the visit just on its own. Everything else in the park is just extra. Nature is gorgeous as you make your way up to the outside theater where the bird show takes place. There is an amazing view and a great place to hang out with a self-serve soda station (PourMySoda), so you don't have to wait in line to get a drink, simply pay and pay thanks to a QR code. I love this efficiency!Near the pool with dolphins is a beautiful butterfly house and a great restaurant with a ton of options, everything from healthier salads all the way to pizza and of course, also goodies like ice cream and beer! Have a blast!

Visited here with my 11 and 5 year old daughters, I paid €270 for the dolphin experience which included 1 photo per person petting a dolphin, educational information about the dolphins and how they're trained. The additional photos cost €50 to buy but this is optional. It was an expensive day but other than tickets to purchase you could bring your own picnic, take your own photos and there are 3 free shows on you could go to (birds of prey, exotic birds and dolphin show). I thought they had a good range of animals to look at. The staff were clearly very knowledgeable about the animals and showed great care for them. I would recommend.

Wonderful park to visit. Birds of prey show was spectacular. There is also a dolphin show which is very nice to see. I recommend visiting the park to everyone. It is worth every cent

I could easily write a dictation here about this park. It's a really great park. I probably liked dolphins the most. I love all animals, but how smart they are. There were also cacti. Which I appreciate.😂🌵

Great park, loved the shows and all the animals! Only four stars because the entry fee is quite high, or at least student prices would be appreciated. (Also beware of the limited bus schedules)

The location makes the entire experience feel so natural. You get to have some real close interactions with a lot of exotic birds. The dolphin park is of course their main attraction. I would recommend anyone visiting Gran Canaria to visit this place at least once.

One of the best type of animal parks with lots of freedom and natural surrounding. Dolphin and eagles' show highly recommended. Road to it - well done despite being in the mountain. Price is quite high though, more than well-established and famous places in Europe. Recommended visit.

animal cages seem small to me, but are clean. Mainly birds. Dolphin show was nice. We had an enjoyable 5 hours with 2 toddlers.
