Costa Caribe Aquatic Park - 10 Second Summary
The Costa Caribe Aquatic Park is an intricately themed water park featuring waterfalls, huge pools, lush greens and reggae music set on a tropical island of 50,000 square meters. With a total of 14 attractions including the King Khajuna, one of the tallest slides in the continent, Rapid Race with its 6 lane slides, the heavenly pools of Playa Paraíso and the exciting Triángulo de las Bermudas where the waves don’t stop, you're destined to have a fabulous day under the Spanish sun here.

Soak up the fun, listen to reggae music and relax at the park's "Bahama Beach" in its most relaxing form in a tropical environment.
The Best of Caribe Aquatic Park
King Khajuna is undoubtedly the most intense ride at the Caribe Aquatic Park. The overwhelming structure of King Khajuna reflects the magnanimity of the legend on which it is based. The slide is 31 meters in height and features a bewildering 55 degree drop. The result is you reach a speed of more than 20 kilometers an hour. Not many have the spunk to handle King Khajuna. Do you?
El Triángulo de las Bermudas
Taking it up a few notches, Caribe Aquatic Park turns to the attraction that recalls the dark legend of the Bermuda Triangle. For years the mystery of this part of the Earth had overrun scientists, just as the enormous waves of the pool would do to you in this attraction. If you escape the waves, there are water cannons to knock you over. Will you overcome these? There is only one way to find out.
Caribe Aquatic Park is also about soaking you in a cool Caribbean ambience with a generous share of adrenaline. Mambo Limbo stays true to that by bringing to you and your kids the rhythm of reggae along with a 12 meter high water slide. Relax and gently glide down one of the slides while letting the tropical setting refresh you to the very bone. This is your chance to take it all in.
El Galeón Pirata
Moving on to bit of an advanced ride, El Galeón Pirata features a small pirate galleon within Caribe Aquatic Park specially designed for the mini pirates. The kids can plunge into the pool from the ship via number of slides of varying height. The galleon itself is populated with characters from Sesame Street. This is one of the new rides at the Caribe Aquatic Park and definitely one your kids will love.
El Gran Caribe - Zona Indoor
A great thing about Caribe Aquatic Park is that you will never run out of things to do here. At Zona Indoor, your kids will be able to go on a ride in a full-scale aircraft under your supervision. It also has a shallow pool with water guns, jets, slides, and many other attractions. The adults, in the meantime, can take a breather on a sun lounger.
We know that taking your kids to an aquatic park can be a bit unnerving, given the obvious safety concern. Not at Cayo Cookie, though. This new attraction at the Caribe Aquatic Park features jet streams of water that appear randomly. The kids might even spot the cookie monster somewhere around. And if at any point you get the urge of joining in, just go ahead. Wholesome and safe family fun, isn’t that the dream?
Caribe Aquatic Park Salou Reviews
Having been to several waterparks before, this one is notably smaller with less rides. However, we were there from 10am til 8pm and were never bored. We went on every ride once, queues time wasn't longer than would be expected, there was live entertainment, and I think the price was very fair! We travelled from Barcelona which was 1hr 30 drive. The music provided a good atmosphere and I feel people of all ages would enjoy this park. I would visit again happily!

We went here on a very hot day and it was really good. The queues for some of the rides were huge but mainly worth the wait! I suggest getting there when the park opens as it’s easy to find a sun lounger and the queues are so much shorter. There are lots of slides for little children,families and for adults. Be prepared to queue for a while if you go on a really hot day!
