My partner and I went to Palmitos park after seeing the brochures in the hotel we were staying at. We are a sedate couple who like to relax and just meander about. We weren't expecting a great amount when we took the trip, but boy were we surprised by just how beautiful the place is. We caught the bus direct to the park, which took us right to the entrance after again the hotels advice. We are very glad we did because this place is in the middle of nowhere. It just appears out of the mountains, down a very small road. Don't be put off by this road, what's waiting at the end is just spectacular!
If you love just ambling about and taking photographs and adoring the local wildlife and fauna, this place is for you. I'm not sure I would take small kids here, the weather is extremely warm, due to the altitude and well, all year round sunshine and to be fair, it's a very sedate place with vegetation and sturdy walks. But if the kids like lizards, tropical animals and the outstanding surroundings, then do it. There's lots and lots of shaded areas to sit in and just relax though so don't let this out you off. We managed to catch the dolphin show whilst there and it was absolutely mind blowing. The stadium is massive and the dolphins are just brilliant, it's a must see if you do visit (which you should!). All the staff we met were very friendly and very helpful.
The aquarium is just breathtaking, I've never seen anything like it. It's built into a cave and the natural light highlights the tanks and fish.
We did have some food whilst there and yes, it wasn't wonderful. But hell, you're on holiday, live a little!
We've put this on a list to be our first place to visit this year again, I can't wait.
