If you want a fun time out with the kids, head to Tivoli world it is without doubt the best theme park on the Costa. It is about a 15 minute drive from Marbella heading towards Malaga.

- Play areas
- Amusement games
- A log flume
- A house with live ‘ghosts’ and chainsaw wielding Spaniards inside. (The haunted house certainly isn’t for the young ones or the faint hearted. However it is a must one for the wife, the girlfriend or the teenagers. It is one of the funniest/scariest things we have ever experienced).
There are also restaurants and bars to dine or drink in if you need a bit of Dutch courage.
All in all, Tivoli World theme park does not disappoint and provides a cheap and cheerful evening for the whole family.

Bioparc Fuengirola Zoo – Marbella:
Bioparc Fuengirola has been around for a while. Originally built as a Zoo in the 1970’s, it was not a pleasant place for the animals.

The new Fuengirola Zoo was opened in 2001 and set new standards for other zoos in Europe to follow. It is now called the Bioparc Fuengirola. Most importantly they have improved the living standards for the animals, which are now very high. This also makes it a more pleasant experience for visitors.
The Bioparc is now flourishing, with over 140 species represented. There are a total of over 1,300 individual animals, therefore seemingly happy in their newly created environments. The variety of animals is huge including birds, mammals including the gorilla, hippopotamus, leopard and tiger, reptiles including the crocodile and python They also now have many fish species.
The Biopark aims not only to fascinate but also to teach and provides educational tours for adults and children.
There is also a restaurant on site
For the children there is a huge playground next door most importantly this keeps them entertained.
Also in the months of July and August, the Bioparc stays open till midnight allowing people to explore the park and its residents at night time. This is the perfect way to end an evening.
