Owner description: Bioparc Fuengirola champions a new model of park based on respect for nature and the preservation of natural species, a model which has already established itself as a flagship for Europe. What Bioparc Fuengirola represents is a different concept of park, a zoological park where animals live side-by-side, recreating their natural habitats, under the concept zoo-imersion. The park is home to more than 200 species, the most of them endangered or already have the risk to be endangered .Bioparc Fuengirola take them in programs to promote and guarantee the surviving of the specie. At the same time that Bioparc makes this job, visitors have the chance to discover such exclusives and uniques species like Sumatra Tiger, just there is 300 freedom specimen or Roloway monkeys, the only ones in Spain and ones of the 28 specimen that exist in captivity round the world That's why the park is one of the best parks in Europe and visit the Costa del Sol has the idea in itself of visiting this amazing park. Take breath inside of tropical forests and catch the chance to fall in love one more time with Costa del Sol with Bioparc Fuengirola.

I visited here in July 2013. What an amazing place. Set in the heart of fuengirola town. Once inside the gates you are taken on a journey of animals that have been rescued injured and brought back to health again. The animals are happy relaxed and so well cared for . The place is spotlessly clean. The park is built with the animals natural habitat in mind.
I so enjoyed my visit to the Bioparc and would recommend it at a heartbeat
Well done staff you should be very proud :)

I thought this zoo was excellent though I haven't visited one for years..plenty to see,not too big but enough to see and do in the heat..15 Euros for one..not a bad price for the experience and plenty of photo opportunities.

Nice and good location but unsafe for children as can climb in to crocodiles, who knows what else is unsafe with those lethal animals?

Spent a very pleasant 3 hours here on a Saturday afternoon. Entry was €15 for an adult, although the sign said €17. €15 is fair value. There are 30 to 50 species to see. As a comparison Chester Zoo in the UK is a full day attraction, is huge and has over 400 different species and admission is £18.
Bioparc Fueringola is pretty small and there were not huge numbers of visitors. Cleverly all the bends and slopes make it seem to be larger than it is.
It was clear that it USED TO BE one of those shameful zoos that had miserable, unhealthy animals in cages that were regarded as exhibits.
Now the animals are housed in environmentally correct and good sized enclosures, in the correct group sizes and with enriched environments. The environments have been restricted to Madagascar, Africa and South-East Asia. There is a mini tour of the Madagascar zone where you get face to face with the ring tailed lemurs but the troop of maybe 8 ringtails kept their distance possibly as there was a juvenile. There is ongoing refurbishment.
The only animals that looked distressed as they paced back and fro and back and fro were the Leopards. All the other animals looked healthy and content. The only animals I failed to spot was the cerval cat and the baby leopard. I particularly liked the aviary with the flying foxes but am not sure they could fly freely.
