Waterparks in Spain

Now that summer is well on its way here in Spain (although not yet the 40th of May – See below*) the many Waterparks in Spain are preparing to open. The season for Spanish Waterparks is usually from April / May through to September / October. During this period the water temperature will range from low 20’s up to 30+ degrees, great for having fun in the sun. Spain is a perfect country for water parks with its hot sunny climate and large numbers of tourists looking to enjoy a fun day in the sun with the opportunity to cool down and experience a wide range of rides and water fun. Here’s the current Top 10 Waterparks in Spain according to YouGoDo users:

1 - Park Aquatico Mijas - Water Park in Fuengirola

2 - Illa Fantasia water park near Barcelona

3 - Siam Park - Water Park in Tenerife

4 - Aqua Natura Water Park Murcia

5 - Aqualandia Water Park Benidorm

6 – Hidro Park water park at Alcudia, Mallorca

7 – Aqua Natura Water Park in Benidorm

8 – Western Park - water park in Mallorca

9 – Bahia Park Water Park in Algeciras

10 – Aqualand in Torremolinos

And for the rare few who have not visited a water park I’d highly recommend. They usually cater all ages with everything from baby pools to extreme wild rides. Side by side races along bumpy slippery tracks, whirlpools, half pipes, black hole type tube rides in the dark are all great fun. And like most businesses the Aqua Parks of Spain are always trying to improve by offering more each year – water pool aerobics and discos, spa and hot tub areas, massage and spa tratements and more are being added to the on site attractions. And for those that simply want to chill there is usually a great beach type area with loungers to relax while the kids tire themselves out! Remember the sun cream!

*40th May is a local Spanish saying which translates something like “do not cast off your vest until after the 40th May” – the though being that after this date there is little or no chance of cold and rain until the Autumn. After about 6 years here in the south of Spain this seems about right with a small amount of rain in early June often occurring.
