Our nine year old niece insisted on visiting the Oasis Park during our recent stay in Futureventra. We were staying in Correlejo and decided to catch the Oasis bus from our hotel. This was a 90 minute journey because the park is located in the south of the island.
During our trip on the bus we commented that we were expecting to see one man and his goat doing a couple of tricks, while we, his audience, swelted in 30 degree heat, before being packed on our way for the journey back to our hotel.
We were pleasantly surprised by what we found when we arrived at the Oasis Park. Essentially this is a zoo in very large grounds. The lower section of the park which contains a number of monkey species as well as reptiles such as alligators. All of this can be found in a pleasant semi tropical gardens which keeps the temperature down. As you walk around the park and you move to different areas with different animals the gardens give way to more exposed environment, more in keeping with the African savanna.
We had a brief lunch at one of the restaurants and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service was excellent. All of which was reasonably well priced, which is a far cry from anything in the UK.
There are a number of shows put on a various locations around the park. We missed most of these but we did manage to catch the sea lion show, which was very enjoyable. We had arrived early and there was an opportunity to be photographed with one of the sea lions dropping a big wet smacker on your cheek. The photos were available at the end of the day for €5, which again is more competitive than anything in the UK.
I will say that we felt that the chimpanzees could have had a better enclosure and the elephants could have done with some water in their enclosure. These were probably the low points for what we considered to be a very good zoo.
Overall, a fantastic day was had by both adults and our niece. It is well worth spending the time and money to visit.
