Dino Park Algar
Dino Park Algar not only makes for a great day out but also the chance to spend the night under the stars. Many holidaymakers to Torrevieja, especially those with young children, enjoy visiting theme and water parks. Although Torrevieja has the superb Aquopolis Water Park, it unfortunately has no theme parks. However, in north Costa Blanca around Benidorm there are several excellent theme parks to visit. Boasting a fantastic location up in the mountains, you will find Dino Park Algar. It gets it’s name from the nearby stunning Algar Waterfalls.
