A good theme park with a wide range of attractions for the whole family. From Dragon Khan & Hurakan Condor to Tami-Tami and the dodgems, there is something for everyone and enough to occupy a family for several days .


Resort
Portaventuras resort includes four hotels, a beach club and the Costa Caribe waterpark. The four hotels are themed and landscaped wonderfully and each has its own special features. The waterpark is very well done and includes five main slides, a lazy river, a volleyball court and a wave pool.

Location
One hour from Barcelona and ten minutes from Reus Airport (Tarragona), with its own train station and direct access from the AP-7 motorway.

Top Tips & Information
If you have bought a Portaventura Express pass, because they are not featured in the line-up of fastrack attractions, hit Furius Baco and Hurakan Condor first. Visitors from UK-USA might be surprised to see smoking is allowed in the park and the park is not as clean as those in the USA (the park now is not owned by Universal). Also watch out for rude queue jumping locals!
