On our latest trip to Tenerife, it was packed with so many day trips, new things to see and exciting adventures. Kadiann had stumbled upon some monkeys on Tik Tok and that was how we found the Monkey Park and had to go!. 


The Monkey Park in Tenerife is basically a breeding and refuge centre for endangered primates. The park is home to free-roaming lemurs, gibbons, squirrel monkeys and more. We were only expecting monkeys but there were birds, reptiles, big parrots and the cutest guinea pigs you have ever seen. 


under 5s are free entry 

10 euros for adults ( 12 plus )

5 euros for children ( 5 - 12 )

The park is Open daily from 9.30 until 5 pm.

On entry, you pay to get in and can purchase food for the animals here too. We bought some fresh fruit and veg boxes which are the size of your hand and cost 3 euros each. You can also pick up a cold drink from the vending machines here too.

We went straight in with no queuing. This might be different depending on school holidays or different times of the year. The first part we went through was the guinea pigs and oh my, they were adorable!. Nila was a little frightened at first as there were SO many. 

Lots of Mummy and Daddy ones with all their tiny babies, but she was so brave and was in awe with them all by the end.

We then came across the free-roaming Monkeys. We saw a man with one on his arm feeding him but wasn't lucky enough to get them as close as that which Kadiann was really sad about, but we will definitely be coming back on our next trip.

Birds and parrots too - we got pictures of the parrots on our shoulders and they were so calm, and the staff were very interactive with you and also the animals.

We then spotted some lizards which we weren't expecting and even a big baboon, which Nila pointed out their bum - kids! :)

As you go through the other gates and follow the park around, it's almost like you start and then finish where you started so it is really straightforward and easy to navigate

The park isn't huge so dont expect a big zoo but for a family-friendly and affordable day out, this was by far an absolute bargain and is one of the cheapest attractions in Tenerife. Expect to spend at least half a day here and want to return :)

Souvenirs, teddies, pens, badges and more are available to purchase.

Have you visited The Monkey Park before..
