What people are saying about Arona, Tenerife

The activity was fabulous - I've been to Tenerife annually for the last decade and this was the first time at Loro Parque - I could have stayed there 3 days, not just the 1! :-) I'd highly recommend the guided tour when you get in too. The only downside was the time to get there - we were one of the latter pick ups and it still took 2 hours - worth baring in mind if you've 'little ones' as there's no loo on the bus.

Fantastic! Don’t wear a cap because it won’t stay on for long! We did the 2hr experience and we each had our own jet ski. I’m 56 and I wasn’t judged, didn’t feel intimidated and wasn’t expected to keep up. However, I did keep up haha. Do it! And to top it all we had 3 dolphins swim alongside us for 2 minutes. It was worth every penny! I’ll certainly do it next time we come to Tenerife

1 double scooter. Revelation, 2h trip at 9:15 am we were the only ones. So we felt divine. no one disturbed us. The steersman was in a separate boat. He took lots of great photos of us. It was time to dive. temporarily it came out over 2 hours. I recommend highly!

A fantastic experience, really really fun, super recommended for adrenaline and adventure lovers. The super good guide explained everything to us. Includes photos and videos which are a beautiful memory to take home.

Great guide! A perfect moment to really enjoy, have fun safely
