1. Aventura Amazonia

This is probably one of the best things you can do with your kids in Marbella. Aventura Amazonia Marbella is the largest adventure park in Andalusia. It reopens its doors on Saturday June 13 2021 with a multitude of leisure and sports activities for young and old. The fact that it is outdoors provides greater health safety, in addition to the hygiene and distancing measures that have been adopted for this season.

Families can enjoy 26 zip lines in its 94 games that take place in the treetops. Fun activities in the middle of nature, which are distributed over 22,000 square meters.

In addition, to ensure greater safety, Aventura Amazonia will have a reduced capacity.

The use of masks will also be mandatory, both for visitors and employees.

3. Eco Reserve in Ojen

This Eco Reserve is just 10 minutes from Marbella. It is undoubtedly one of the most original plans to enjoy with the family in the middle of nature. Here, kids can see the animals up close, walk with them (deer, wild boars…) and even feed them. It has 100 hectares that both parents and children can go through in a 4×4 or, for the more active ones, on foot. Good clothing is the key to this adventure.

This activity is suitable for any age, but it should be noted that the terrain will make it difficult to use a stroller.
