LORO PARQUE

  • My sister has just booked twin tickets for Siam Park and the above. However she didn't realise just how far away it was. I know you can get the bus 325 to Puerto de la Cruz, I was wondering how far the park was from here, or does the bus stop outside. Also roughly how much is the fare and how long?

  • A bit of a long trek from Los Gigantes.  Bus takes around an hour and three quarters.  You have to get off at the bus station, cross the road and get a taxi.  Return fare around ?10, but not too sure.

    Might be worth going into one of the hotels, or excursion centres, and asking about transport to the Loro Parque as they are arranging trips all the time.

  • Depending on who's going - it will probably be cheaper and easier to hire a car.

    No doubt a quick search of this site, starting on the front page will assist.

  • A transfer coach company based in Playa San Juan have taken us to Loro Parque, it could be worth contacting Elmar Services.

    What about a Los Gigantes taxi excursion. They advertise on this site.

  • There is a "train" that runs from Puerto de la Cruz to Loro Parque. I think that it is free but I don't know exactly where it runs from.

  • Thanks for the replies, they actually ended up getting the bus, took an hour and a half, said it was journey from hell !!! They got a taxi back.  Yes you are right, there is a train takes you to Loro Parque but when they got off the bus they all felt so ill that they walked, took tem about 10 mins. They loved Loro Parque and would highly recommend it BUT would definately hire a car next time.

  • I'm amazed they found it "the journey from hell." I find it a beautiful journey, fantastic scenery. It's fascinating to see the vegetation change as you go further north.

  • I do agree _ it is a really interesting bus journey, and for the distance very reasonable.
    However it is a long one.....a quick glance at the bus timetable will tell you that.
    If you have been over to Puerto de la Cruz in a car you are obviously aware of all the twists and turns on the road.

  • don't think they looked at the scenery -  they were all travel sick, to them it was the 'journey from hell' !! I did tell them that the journey would be 'twisty' and 'turny' but they had already booked the trip before they realised, that's why they got txi back as they couldn't face the bus again. Maybe next time IN THE CAR the scenery  will be more appreciated.

  • The  good thing about that route is it makes you realise that tenerife is more than british bars
    it shows the beauty the island has to offer hope they appreciated it overall. :)
