One of the best nature parks in Europe. Sited near to Santander it environment is simply amazing. You can enjoy several nature and animal shows, view bears, tigers, lions, and hundreds of species. Also you can taste regional cuisine in the restaurants beside the park.

Visiting a zoo is always a bitter-sweet experience, as animals are of course secluded from their original locations but are made available for us to see them. In the case of Cabárceno, it even does not publicize as a zoo but a Nature Park, as animals here are not secluded between bars, but in large open fields, sometimes as large... More

We've been to Santander three times and each time we set aside a slot in our schedule to visit Cabarceno Park which is close by. This park was originally an ancient iron mining area. It is huge in size and allows space for hundreds of diverse animal species. What is so gratifying is that the space dedicated to the various... More

We have been to northern Spain for the last 4 years and always visit this park - it is wonderful. It is a bit expensive but comparable to some of the activities local to us in the UK. You can spend the whole day there and it can be tiring. The park covers a huge area so you need to... More

A big surprise . This place is so big. You can eat there but we took a picnic. To do this place justice it takes a full day so arrive early. The area is a sight of open cast mining and they have done an awesome job creating this natural and cruelty free animal environment . My sons had their... More

The tour is very busy in the peak holiday times. But well worth visiting plenty of picnic areas. Even a baby gorilla

Amazing landscape with rocks which burst out the ground. Wonderful big enclosures for the animals who are well looked after. Great range of animals and was amazed by the huge bear enclosure set against an amazing cliff backdrop the Gorillas were also fantastic. Well worth 50 euros for both of us.

The park is fantastic. Fantastic places, views and landscapes. All is kept clean and cured. The 2 stars are just for this. But for the rest, it is completely disorganized ! No signals that could orientate the tourist in choosing one route rather than another. Moreover there was no staff for asking Infos. We thought that we could do the... More

Hello Lorenzo, We are so sorry to read you didn't like Cabárceno. As for your comment, we would like to explain some details: - There is not one route to visit the Park; each visitor chooses the one he likes using the map given at the entrance , the App on their mobile phone, on just asking at the information...
