Water Parks in Lanzarote
In Lanzarote there are two important water parks for a guaranteed entertainment. These are Aqualava Water Park and Aquapark Costa Teguise.
Aqualava Water Park
The first one, Aqualava Water Park is placed in Playa Blanca, which is located within the Relaxia Lanzasur Club apartment complex, southern Lanzarote. Here you will be able to arrive by car, bus or even ferry from Corralejo, if you are instead in the island Fuerteventura.
Luckily, Aqualava’s park is open all year round, with pools even heated by geothermal energy. Actually, many of its facilities are a model of sustainability and suitable for all ages. In fact, this park counts with fun pools where buckets of water rotate to empty their content over the most unsuspecting visitors passing underneath, causing the hilarious laughter of children but also adults.
Additionally, Aqualava has water slides with dizzying curves to float down, as well as a wave pool that both adults and children will be able to enjoy.
And follow our advice: take advantage of your trip and visit Playa Blanca, you won’t want to miss it out if you are in Lanzarote.
