As the name suggests this is a park dedicated to crocodiles where you and the family can see a wide variety of crocodiles, alligators and turtles up close and safely observe these magnificent creatures. Don’t miss seeing Paco – the biggest crocodile in Europe!
You can take a guided tour in English with the very experienced and knowledgeable keepers, this is a great way to learn all about crocodiles and make the most of the park. There are also shows every day, which we would highly recommend. From October to June, they take place at 12.30, 2.30 and 4.30, every afternoon. You can also hold a baby crocodile and get your picture taken if you’re brave enough.
Entrance is 16€ for an adult, 12€ for children from 5-10 and 6€ for 3-4 olds. Booking online is recommended, as there’s a good discount on the ticket price. It is open from 11am to 5pm in the winter, 11am to 6pm October, May and June and 11.00am to 7pm in July, August and September. Find out more on TripAdvisor.
Insider’s Tip – This is quite a small park, so you only need one or two hours to explore the whole thing, so make sure you time it right to take in the show, as this is a highlight. We’d recommend heading to the botanical gardens before or after your visit, as it’s very close by and is a beautiful place to explore and is only 1€ to go in.
The Crocodile Park is in Torremolinos, next door to the great water park Aqualand Torremolinos. If you are visiting in the summer season, you can get one ticket to cover both attractions, which is excellent value for money. This is one of the biggest water parks on the coast and great fun for all the family, with a kids’ zone, a chill out area, sun loungers and of course loads of slides and rides.
Torremolinos also boasts the lovely Parque de la Bateria, which is a must for a family holiday. The kids will love this local park with its First World War cannons, play area and space to run around, parents will love the views and peace. A highlight is the lake with rowing boats and fountains and it’s very well maintained – a great place for a family afternoon out.
