Visit Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park

Writer at Desk

Lanzarote, a 🏝 Spanish Island and a destination that I was unfamiliar with until I received an 📧 email from my collaborating guest author; Todd, who is associated with a wonderful holiday resort in 🏖 Playa Blanca on this amazing island.

It’s called the …

🌺 Rancho Texas Lanzarote Theme Park 🌺

Below, is Todd’s take on this park, which is just one of the many popular attractions on the island suited for the whole family.

Rancho Texas Lanzarote – Canary Islands

Lanzarote is situated in the 🏝 Canary Islands {Spanish archipelago} and is located about 125 kilometers off the coast of Africa. The town of Playa Blanca, once a tiny fishing village, has evolved into a very popular family friendly 🏖 beach holiday resort.

🗺 Be sure to check out the {Google Map} box at the bottom of this post for exact location. 🗺

I have visited locations on the south tip of Spain, but now wished I had journeyed a little further into the Canary Islands. Our daughter and her boyfriend also visited Lanzarote a few seasons ago and said it was stunning!

I have included a few of her 📸 photos in this post which were taken during their visit. 🙂

There are plenty of ways to enjoy this expansive attraction for the entire day.  Indulge in some leisure time and/or take part in the many activities available throughout the entire day.

The park is home to an exotic collection of species that inhabit spacious areas, which are recreated to represent their natural habitats.

The mammals count sea lions, raccoons and the majestic 🐯 white tiger to name just a few. While the separate farm area is perfect for the little ones.

It’s just like a picture 📖 book with rabbits, hens, goats, pigs and donkeys playing in clean and comfortable surroundings.

For the braver visitor, the 🦎 Reptilarium is a real highlight.

Spread over more than 1000 square meters, the park is beautifully designed. There’s winding passageways, caves and lagoons that host a breathtaking collection of creatures.

🐢 Giant tortoises reside here alongside boa constrictors, pythons, bearded dragons and chameleons.
There latest addition is in the form of the 🐉 Komodo Dragons – the largest 🦎 lizards in the world and a very special sight!

The Indian lagoon is another great location, with its 🌊 waterfalls and windmill. There’s the chance to canoe in the rivers or take a 🐴 pony ride along the riverside, surrounded by a village of; wigwams.

Elsewhere, the central lake is a sight to behold with 🐊 crocodiles swimming in its shallow waters.

Rancho Texas Lanzarote – Afternoon Attractions

Rancho Texas Lanzarote

When lunchtime rolls around, there’s plenty of options to satisfy even the hungriest of bellies. The popular fast food restaurant has all the usual fare; pizzas, burgers, spaghetti, chicken nuggets and onion rings are all available.

For a Texan themed meal, head on over to the 🐴 Wild Horse Saloon to sample treats from its delicious barbecue-style cuisine.

After lunch, you can continue to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. Perhaps by heading over to the swimming area for a chill out. The recreational pool and water game section is overlooked by two water slides.

One 82 meters long and the other is 100 meters!

The slides 🐍 snake their way around rocky slopes and plant-filled terrain for a fun and exciting ride!

There is constant lifeguard supervision around the slides, allowing the adults to relax and sunbathe while the kids enjoy their swim.

There are changing rooms with 🚻 toilets and showers for guests. The shaded ‘splash and pool terrace’ is an ideal place for the family to enjoy a spot of lunch or a snack.

The beautifully landscaped outdoor space invites a lazy afternoon for you to enjoy in the sunshine.

Another real highlight of the park is its sheer wealth of color. This is perhaps seen most beautifully with the 🦜 exotic birds. The park is home to an abundance of bird life including;

parrots;  hawks;  cockatoos;  bald eagle;  owls;  vultures.

At the daily birds of prey show, visitors can experience these majestic winged creatures flying right overhead – and we mean RIGHT overhead!

Don’t forget to look out for the Condor, which is the largest flying bird in the world.

The 🦜 parrot and cockatoo exhibition is also great fun and children will love seeing the birds showing off their abilities on stage with games and sports.

And it’s not just the birds that have their own show.

The sea lions love the spotlight and the Sea Lion Interaction is one of the Park’s most popular events.

Visitors can get up close and personal with these playful animals and may even get to see them leap through the waters to a distance of nearly two meters.

After hours, the fun continues at Rancho Texas. Held twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays from 7-11 pm, the Country Nights are packed full of music, dance and Wild West-themed hi-jinks. Visitors are greeted by {Cowboys and Indians} on horseback and will be welcomed into the ranch by even more colorful characters.

Tickets are all-inclusive, so it’s the ideal time to just let go and have fun. Sangria and beer will be flowing for the adults and soft drinks for the kids.

There’s a comedy show, all-you-can-eat BBQ buffet, a dance team and a whip and lasso duo who just love to show off their moves.

A live band play country and western favorites and the kids will be provided with their very own entertainment. Line dancing and a rodeo bull complete this fantastic Texan-themed night.

Entrance fee to the park was at 20 euros for adults and 15 for children (aged 2-14), a few seasons ago. If you’d like to buy tickets to the Sea Lion Interaction too, the total cost is 70 euros for adults and 65 for children. The Country Nights are priced at 42 euros for adults and 22 for children.

Prices may vary by season or there may be special offers, so it’s always best to check the Rancho Texas website, for the most up to date prices before you travel.
