Whether you want a family holiday full of relaxation or one full of adventure, Costa del Sol has it. From water parks to crocodile parks to cable car rides, your kids will not be bored on this trip.

Here are some Costa del Sol attractions that will be a hit with the kids and adults alike on your next trip to Spain.




Costa del Sol Attractions

Costa del Sol is a family-friendly spot for a holiday that has something for everyone. You can spend one day flying down the water slides at one of the many water parks, and take another day (or two or three!) checking out all of the animal parks and sanctuaries.

Then, visit castles and historic sites, and try other adventures like parasailing, sea kayaking, and making your own chocolate bars.

1. Water Parks

If it's water slides, lazy rivers, and wave pools that your family desires, Costa del Sol delivers. There are several water parks to choose from, including Aqualand, Aquamijas, Aquavelis, and Costa Water Park.

Check out these parks online ahead of time as many offer discounts if you purchase your tickets before arriving at the park.

2. Animals, Animals, and More Animals

Costa del Sol has spots where you can see almost any animals you want. From the Crocodile Park to the Selwo Marina, there is a list of choices. If you want a traditional zoo, the BioParc Zoo is for you. Not only is it a zoo, but it's also a breeding centre for endangered species, like tigers.

If it's marine life you seek, the Sea Life Aquarium and the Selwo Marina have sharks, dolphins, penguins, sea lions, and more for you and your family to see. You can also check out the Wolf Park and the Donkey Sanctuary to round out your animal activities.

3. Adventure

If it's adrenaline-producing adventure your family seeks, these activities are for you! A cable car ride up Mount Calamorro puts you so far above sea level, you can see the African coast on a clear day.

Sea kayaking offers waterfalls, crystal clear water, hidden beaches, and pristine coastline with sugar sand beaches. If amusement parks are your thing, Tivoli World has carousels, rides, go-karts, shows, shopping, and more. 

Aventura Amazonia should be your choice if your family loves zip lines, challenge courses, and a kids area. If you want to experience the tallest zip line in Andalucia, don't leave a trip to Aventura Amazonia off of your to-do list!

Cap out your adventures with a trip to a tiny chocolate factory, Mayan Monkey Mijas, where you can make your own milk, dark, or white chocolate bars to enjoy at home.

Not only can you enjoy delicious chocolate, but you can also feel good about your treats knowing that the chocolate that is harvested and makes its way to the factory is responsibly grown/sourced and is eco-friendly.
