Zoos & Aquariums
Monkey Park Tenerife is a small unique zoo that is located nearby Los Cristianos on the south-western coast of Tenerife island. It has a relatively long history because of being founded in 1991 as a private zoo. As you have probably guessed from its name, the park mainly focuses on preserving a great variety of monkeys and apes, which is actually its most distinctive feature due to the absence of the similar venture throughout the whole Canary archipelago.
Aside from nurturing different species of primates, Monkey Park Tenerife is engaged with breeding specific species of birds and reptiles, along with guinea pigs and boa constrictors. Perhaps the most exciting and responsible task of the zoo is to preserve not only the types of animals which are of least concern but also the endangered ones, as well as developing respect for these magnificent animals.
In Monkey Park Tenerife, the visitors get to see such rare species of primates as the lar gibbon, the mandrills, the black mangabey, the golden-headed lion tamarin, the titi monkey, the Goeldi's marmoset and more! Not only that, you can admire the various types of parrots, for example, the cockatoo, the sun parakeet, the military and blue-and-yellow macaw or even the bird species of violet turaco. Playful ring-tailed lemurs, perilous Cuban crocodile, African spurred and red-footed tortoise and Green iguana are also here to be observed and marveled at. Another one of many awesome features of Monkey Park is a chance of direct communication with the majority of the zoo's inhabitants in their natural environment: you can go through the cages, touch, and stroke the lemurs and squirrel monkeys, feed them from the palm of your hand (although some of them like to climb your head to receive the food) and experience the joy of treating the parrots flapping their wings around you! To be totally secure and to eliminate the chance of harming the animals, you can buy special food for them at the entrance. Also, some visitors advise visiting the zoo in the morning, while the animals are at the peak of their activity and will socialize with you more enthusiastically.
Monkey Park Tenerife is, without any doubt, perfect for attending with your family, especially if you have children who adore chimpanzees, guinea pigs, lizards, and lemurs the most. You can get lost in this relatively small zoo for 2 hours or even for half a day and then relax on the bench outside the park or take a memorable photo as a souvenir at the entrance of the park.
The park is open from 9:30 AM to 4 PM and the admission fee includes €10 per adult and €5 per child up to 12 years old. To conclude, Monkey Park Tenerife is a must-see for any tourist who happens to be in Los Cristianos and provides you with the invaluable experience of witnessing wildlife with your own eyes.
