We stumbled across this beautiful place whilst trying to find somewhere to camp out in our motor home near to Santander ferry port for our ferry the next day. The camping here is free and it's a lovely place to stay! Elephants are so entertaining to watch and a really unique thing to come across in Spain. Lots of shops... More

Lovely park where animals live in big spaces. It is very well planed, the landscape is stunning. They give you maps in the entrance. Plenty of parking space in the diferent stops so you can walk to watch the animals. You can take your dogs. The gorilla space is big and you can see the family of gorillas trough a... More

I have visited the park many times in the past but I think It has got better with the pass of time. If you like photography this is a great place. Don´t forget to visit the "Birds of Prey" exhibition, It´s awesome.

Cabarceno was a delight to visit, ideal for both young and old. As someone who is not a fan of zoos Cabarceno offers both the animals and their visitors miles of open spaces in which to roam. The gorillas are undeniable highlight for most visitors (I'd prefer to see them in the wild), however most of the other animals, especially... More

Had a day with a coach tour. Very impressed indeed with both the animal areas and the natural landscape itself. Understand it can get crowded in high season but on a slightly cool and overcast September day there were no queues. Plenty of room for picnics and space for children to let of steam in between viewing the animals. The... More

Liked: scenery, beautiful backdrop of the Picos de Europa, Elephants looking so happy, Black Panthers and the wonderful birds of prey show. Disliked: the cost - nearly 100 euros for a family of five - but then again a highlight of the holiday for the children.

It is really quite different from the typical conception of a zoo... This people took care of the animals life quality from the beginning... Have fun discovering unbelievable geological structures everywere in the area. The laberinth is also amazing... As a drawback: price of tickets... too expensive in my opinion

We had arrived in Santander by overnight ferry from Plymouth and we visited the Parque the following day. The area was once a vast quarry, in excess of 750 acres (we were told) and is a mixture of rugged terrain, large open grassed areas and well treed. What a beautiful place for the animals to have such freedom. We got... More
