On this trip, you’ll spend the day at the Terra Natura Waterpark and Zoo. You’ll travel with your guide to the park, which sits in the suburbs of the city of Murcia, a 40-minute drive away. Your guide will help you get your bearings, and then you’re free to head off and do what you want. There are two different areas for you to explore – the waterpark and the zoo. The latter’s a good place to start, because there are over 300 animals to see, including lions, cheetahs, zebras and hippos. During your walk around, be sure to stop off and feed some of the more family-friendly animals, like deer, giraffes and lemurs. Afterwards, the waterpark’s the perfect place to cool off. It’s themed like a prison island, and you’ll find a host of fast slides, two pools, and a lazy river spread through its 40,000-square-metre grounds. Before you head back to the port, you’ll have plenty of time to grab a bite to eat in the restaurant or snack bar. They serve everything from pizzas and burgers, to salads and ice-cream sundaes.
