New inhabitants in Bioparc Fuengirola


Did you know that we have two new and exotic inhabitants in Fuengirola?

These new residents live in the town centre, in Bioparc, one of the most outstanding tourist attractions in Costa del Sol.

It really is a tropical forest, a new concept of zoo where its animals live in an open space that recreates their natural habitat.  

The park is divided in 4 big areas: Madagascar, Equatorial Africa, Indo-Pacific, and the Asian southeast; and each of them accommodates animal species and plants typical from these regions. 

The new inhabitants mentioned above are two the most popular animals in the Asian southest: a Sumatran tiger and a golden-cheeked gibbon.

The tiger is a beautiful male called Harau. He is only 2 years old and arrived to Bioparc in August so they can continue with the European breeding program for this species.

On the other hand, the new golden-cheeked gibbon is just a baby, the first ever golden-cheeked gibbon to be born in Spain and one of the only 4 gibbons born in Europe thanks to the European breeding program for this endangered species.

The tickets for Bioparc Fuengirola and other attractions in Costa del Sol can be purchased on the reception of Hotel Florida Spa at a more reduced price than if you buy them directly in Bioparc’s ticket office. The price we offer for a regular ticket is 17.90€ and 13.90€ for over 65’s, which is 2€ cheaper than their official price.

If you are on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, and you fancy meeting these two amazing new residents we recommend you not to miss a visit to Bioparc.

We are sure you will have a great time!
