The PortAventura Park combines different areas themed to symbolise different regions and cultures of the world. There are many rides to experience, from gentle jungle swings for the kids to full-on 135km/h adrenaline coasters. Shows are the second biggest attraction to PortAventura, and there are a wide variety throughout the day from precise acrobatics to card tricks and magicians, everyone will enjoy. When you get peckish you are spoilt for choice of where to refuel, each land has a wide variety of restaurants and food outlets, ranging from a la carte menus to grab-and-go fast food for those who just want to keep going! Children are also well catered for with specially adapted menus.
The Costa Caribe Aquatic Park, formerly known as Caribe Aquatic Park, is less than a stones throw from the main Park and has its own entrance. The vibe is very much a chilled out Caribbean feel, reggae music fills the air whilst kids and adults fill the water. Plenty of shade is provided by towering palm trees and beach huts which also serve up ice cold beverages as well as delicious food. An array of single flumes, double dingy flumes, water rapids and wave pools are scattered across park as well as a lazy river which meanders comfortably in an effortless circuit around the park. Special areas for younger children to play in are designed with fun but also safety in mind.
In 2013, the Costa Caribe Aquatic Park will offer a new child-friendly area, complete with the tallest toboggan in Europe and a host of fun attractions - enjoy the pirate ship in the children's pool, or have fun in the kid's splash pad.
