Things to do
Port Aventura Park is a must on most visitors to-do lists when they visit Salou. Overwhelmingly the city’s most popular attraction, it’s fun for the whole family. You could spend your entire time in Salou here, staying at one of the hotels on site and enjoying the Aquatic Park. The Park offers a unique experience as you travel through different theme areas. Explore the lush vegetation of Polynesia, discover the beautiful buildings in China and see the ruins of Colonial Mexico without ever leaving Salou. You can enjoy six different worlds as well as popular characters of Sesame Street and amazing shows. Exciting rides will keep the entire family entertained, food is available on site and there’s a firework show to enjoy at night. If you only have one day to spend in the park, consider getting the express pass for quicker entrance onto rides.
Costa Caribe Aquatic Park has been completely renovated and extended to feature a children’s pool with two depth levels and a pirate ship filled with Sesame Street characters. Take your family to one of the top water parks in Spain where you can practice rafting, go down slides or relax in a lounger. In addition to this, kids can enjoy the splash pad while parents relax on large water beds. The park’s greatest innovation is Europe’s highest free-fall waterslide. Thrill seekers will love launching themselves from a height of 31 metres down a slope of 55 degrees. If you prefer a calmer slide, you can try the multi bumper or six-lane racer slide. Enjoy the lush Carribbean environment with more than 50 species of plants and palm trees.
