Family Attractions: TIVOLI WORLD theme park is located in Arroyo de la Miel . The park is designed for adults as well as children and has wonderful gardens, fountains and walkways. This park is one of the oldest established on the coast. The park is set in beautiful gardens with illuminated fountains and several squares where you can stop and watch one of the many free shows. For example, in the Western Square there is a reproduction of a Wild West Town with French Can-Can shows and Country & Western music and the Plaza de Andalucia gives you an insight into the regional culture and folklore with its Flamenco and Spanish ballet show.
Tivoli World has its own currency (Tivolino) which you use to buy rides and entrance to other amusements, so you need to change up the money you think you'll use.

SELWO AVENTURA PARK is a nature park unique in Europe where animals of the five continents coexist in semi wild conditions. The park is divided into several zones, each of which features a variety of different animals. The first remarkable area which you will encounter is the lagoon which is populated by exotic birds, including some colourful flamingos. Nearby are habitats suitable for birds and monkeys. One of the park's most striking man-made features is the bird canyon, a massive enclosed area of hills and plants, within which more than 40 different species of birds live freely. A great part of the circuit is made in all-terrain trucks, although there is lots to see on foot, so wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Also there is limited shade so summer visitors should remember to bring along a hat and sun cream. ( Website in Spanish only )
