Summer Activities perfect for All Ages.
It´s a fact that more families with children, spend their summer holidays in Gran Canaria than do in the winter months. During the winter season Gran Canaria is the ideal destination for mainly older people
because of all the health benefits. Now the summer season is right on our doorstep.
That means a slight change in the activities on offer in Gran Canaria. We have put together a list of Fun and Exciting activities for you to take part in and too bring the whole family together.
Here we have an incredibly exciting and beautiful animal park. Offering Dolphin show and bird of prey display and show.
During the big fire at Palmitos Park in 2007, where more than 50% of the Park burned down, many of the animals had to be set free to save their life. After rebuilding the Park, they managed to re capture more than 80% of the animals again.
Palmitos Park now appears as a beautiful and modern animal park, where you easily can spend a whole day enjoying seeing all the beautiful animals.

This is a true copy of a city, back in the wild west days, showing you how the good old cowboys where living.
Here you have cattle running through the city, you can experience a bank robbery, where the robbers of course are "hanged". You can´t have cowboys without Indians, gunfights between the good and the bad and much more. You find lots of shows/performances everywhere in Sioux City.
