We enjoyed our trip to Palmitos park. It’s high up in a valley and has some impressive views.

The bird show was awesome, they let some eagles fly free for the show and at the end they returned perfectly timed. It really was impressive.

The view from the platform for the bird show is absolutely breathtaking! I would deffinately recommend visiting if you’re looking for something quite nice to do for some time.

I say some time… we went for opening time, we used the bus to get there which was €4.40 each. The park is an average size. If you’re like us, we enjoy a walk around a zoo. Sadly the park isn’t really that big, we got to the park about 10am but had seen most things by 2pm. We didn’t watch the second bird show. For this reason it I only gave it 4 stars.

In terms of cost of food etc which people mention a lot. I would say it’s as expected. It’s not cheap, but I wouldn’t say it’s excessively expensive. It’s reasonable if you consider where you are and what you’d expect the food and drink to cost.

A great zoo, but it’s worth the entry for the birds of prey and dolphin show alone.

The bird of prey show is high up at the top of the hill so I’d recommend a hat, as it’s a bit of a sun trap. They have two of the biggest vultures I’ve ever seen, and they fly between the trainers what seems like inches above your head.

The dolphin show is amazing, get there early before it starts if you want a seat in the shade. A photo with the dolphin is 20e or two photos (same person) for 30e. If you want the photo on your phone, you can stand just beside the professional photographer and take your own, he didn’t stop me, I think because you pay beforehand they probably don’t care at that point if you take your own as well.

Drinks are 5e for 750ml cup and the bottle water is 3.50e out the machine.

While I prefer seeing dolphins out in the Atlantic, the dolphins used in this show have all been rescued and would have died if left to fend for themselves. There is an obvious bond between dolphin and trainer.

Only complaint is queuing up for food for 20 minutes to then be told "oh we don't actually have any food today" and being sent to another restaurant. Food is very very expensive so be warned.

Easy enough to get to on the bus from Puerto Rico but buses quite sporadic for the return leg or 30ish euros for a taxi

Lovely park when we went it was extremely hot the park itself has some lovely animals owls monkeys, dolthins,birds, little bit disappointed they wasn't a bigger variety of animals as there was no tigers or lions ect. Quite the walk to especially on a baking hot day we found the prices too high for a bottle of coke it was 3.90 euro and the disappointing thing is most of the snack bars shut early for some reason so if your choking for a drink you can go to the restaurant either at the start or end of map, we went in the restaurant told to sit and somebody will come and serve u after 15 minutes nobody came to we left. Overall it was a great day out personally don't think it's a day out as can finish in about 3 hours

We visited as two families with 6 children between us, ages ranging from 2-11 years.

We got a taxi from our hotel, which cost around €15 each way from Playa des Ingles.

Important to note that you get discounted tickets if booked online, but you have to do this at least a day in advance, you can't do it on the day of the trip. Adults are from 11 and over.

When we arrived, the youngest member needed a change of nappy, and we were told there were no baby changing facilities on site, so we had to try and make do, which wasn't ideal and something that should be addressed.

As for the park itself, it has a good range of animals and the kids all loved it. There are a few shows to watch, and we saw the birds of prey show and then the dolphin show. It would be a good idea to check the times of these before you go, to avoid any long waits.

While the birds of prey show was very good and interesting, with some very large eagles swooping over our heads, it was the dolphin show that really made it. I am told that the dolphins are rescued and would not have survived in the wild, so not bred in captivity. This is something I was concerned about.

The dolphins are incredible and the show is 30 minutes that my kids will be talking about for a long time. It made the visit very worthwhile, and without it, I do think that the park wouldn't be anywhere near as good.

It was expensive, costing around €110 for our family of 5, and that was booked the day before with the discount, so I would imagine 10% more on the day if you didn't pre-book. The shows are included in the entry price.

From the reviews on here before, I noted that the food was expensive, and so we didn't have anything other than ice creams (€3.80 each), and waited to eat back at the hotel.

reduce the entrance fee of 33e dramatically , this experience left a bitter sweet taste , super birds , if not all about the birds,
Sat in a full restaurent for over 40 minutes hoping to eat and have soft drink , ended up leaving as no one came to take order and impossible to get either one of the waiters attention.
all food drinks , and machine drinks highly priced (3.50e ) that's just for a small bottle of water.
After having spent 2 hours getting.g their at yes you guessed it , enty of euros, we had seen everything in just over an hour , really speaking nothing at this park that special .been to many at half the entrance cost and so much better.
other concerning things were the perthetically small pens most creatures were in with many showing nasty wounds.
would definitely NOT go back
maybe if you do go , see the dolphins show , we didn't want to , so didn't. but did see them
really bri.gs home the morality of these money spinning places , made us think twice , and I. future wi rather spend 66e on something worth whe maybe go and see dolphins in the wild , the ocean where they should be , , can do this fro puerto rico marina for 25e.

Great place, something for all ages. Very clean, animal enclosures are very close to natural habitat, clean and food for animals was fresh, animals looked healthy and well cared for. Strongly recommend the birds of prey show, lovely to see the birds flying free in the mountains.
CAUTION: If travelling there by taxi, pre book to come home as taxis do not like to travel there after 5pm, as the park closes.
Staff friendly and helpful. 2 members of staff ( I think from the dolphin show) kindly took our party of 6 in their own cars to yhe nearest taxi rank as after 3 calls for a taxi and a 40 min wait, no taxi came.
Views are amazing, beautiful gardens along the way, totally worth the trip.

Overall experience was good! Birds of prey & dolphin shows were amazing! You could tell the animals are treated very well & the staff are great with them! The day out for us was only half a day as its not big enough for a full day out
My only problem was customer service, we bought 2 over priced dolphin drinks 1 of which had a hole in the straw. We only wanted to swap the straw, as we could not drink from the straw & it splashed all over us when attempting to drunk. Dolphin staff said we needed to talk with staff from the park as they are separate 🤷🏻‍♀️ even though we bought the drink from them before the show started. Park kiosk said we had to go back to the dolphin staff 🙄 for the sake of €7 for 1 drink we left it.

A lovely zoo with a great dophin show. I wondered how long we would be there but we were there 10-3pm. The bird of prey show was ace and the presenter was great and funny (shows are in Spanish and English) but there's no shade and your really need to be seated 20 mins before to get a good seat. The dolphin show was excellent, the dolphins are rescues so no need to worry about them, there is a lovely shady area to watch the dolphins do tricks and jumps etc.
The rest of the zoo has a lot of birds (which don't do much for me personally), a komodo dragon which my kids loved, emus your can feed (although they peck really hard so it's not much fun to feed them!), and quite a range of other animals. Def. Worth a visit. Not much food offerings and pricy as these things are - bought 4 ice creams which had clearly been melted and refrozen, and 1 coke and it came to €18. We took a packed lunch!

Probably my most favourite family day out ever! This park is stunning, easy to get to and very well maintained. The dolphin show was absolutely outstanding and we paid 20 euros to have a photo each with them which was well worth it. The work that has gone into the show and training of the dolphins must be unreal. The dolphins looked very happy and well cared for too. A photo opportunity with the exotic birds is so fun - 10 euros for a printed photo with them which is quite reasonable I thought. The birds themselves are beautiful and again very well trained. The other animals again appeared very well cared for too and albeit a hot summer day in a tourist resort there was no crowding or fighting to get a good view of any of the animals. We have had the best day here and would absolutely recommend a visit if you can!!
