Loro Parque (Spanish for "parrot park") or 'Loro Park' is a 13.5-hectare (33-acre) zoo on the outskirts of Puerto de la Cruz on Tenerife, Spain where it houses an extensive and diverse reserve of animal and plant species. The park was conceived as a paradise for parrots and has developed over the years into one of the biggest attractions of the Canary Islands, with over 40 million visitors. The park keeps orcas, which has attracted criticism from some organisations.
Since 1972 when the park was founded by Wolfgang Kiessling and opened on 1.3 hectares (3.2 acres) with 150 parrots, it has grown to 13.5 hectares (33 acres) and is home to some 4000 parrots representing 350 species and sub-species, as well as many other animals. This parrot collection is the largest in the world and makes the park one of the main references in the study and conservation of these animals worldwide.

The place is too crowded, to hard to see the exhibits. The park is very small for the amount of people that is in. The prices are to high in food ad gifts. Birds looks in bad conditions compare to the orcas. Some of the animals looks in bad conditions healthy talking and the dolphin trainers yield the dolphins during the show. Shows are very poor, sea lions show last 17 minutes and no coordination, and lack of professionalism. The dolphin show was very boring, the dolphins spend more time without control that in the show. I heard the trainers yielding the dolphins and trying to get the attention back hitting the water very rough... I can imagine the trainers hitting them on the back. The orca show was amazing but take to much time to get in, is too crowded and bad planned. The information on the displays say almost nothing about the animals... No educative at all. I don't recommend this place at all. I hope they change some for the good of the animals and make it more educative, organize and clean.

Superb entertaining whales show Five wonderful things about the show 1. Quite informative as well 2. Water splashes by whales 3. Ambiance, sitting and overall arrangements 4. Best part was the live video screening before the show, they make it really interactive and funny 5. While coming to Orca ocean you have to cross SeaLives museums, that exhibits jelly fishes ... kind of bonus with orca ocean

Orcas, sea lions and dolphins are the pearls of Loropark! So cute :) Way of communication between trainers and animals is remarkable - seems the is really no violence, only positive motivation. I was happy like a child!!!

The whole family enjoyed the show, something a bit different from the usual. We sat in the splash zone a bit further back - still came away drenched! (Getting wet was the only bit small person did not like).
