For more than just a swimming pool, be sure to visit the nearly 90,000 square metre Aqualand Maspalomas. Located in southern Gran Canaria, it boasts more than 30 pools. Tornado, Kamikaze, Racer Twin Turbolance – as wild as the names of the attractions sound, that’s how much crazy fun can be had zipping along steep downhill and eight-lane slides on rubber tyres. For the little ones, there is a mini-park with water games and a climbing tower, while for the adults, there is a huge jacuzzi pool to relax in. Day tickets cost between €12 and €24 for children (depending on age) and €33 euros for adults. And if you simply can’t get enough, you can buy a discounted 2-day pass.
