When we travel with kids we are always exposed to the feared ‘I’m bored’. Children need to change activities frequently during their free time and that free time is precisely the one us adults need to relax. Going to the beach can be very fun for the little ones but they might start to get bored in long vacations. That is why we suggest a plan for a day when you really want to impress your kids. We assure that you will have a very relaxed evening as the place that we are going to visit is famous for sucking up all the extra energy of the little ones during holidays. We suggest many different places so you can even manage a few calm and relaxed evenings.
1. Aqualand,in S’Arenal
It is the biggest water park in the island, and one of the biggest ones in Europe. It is also the oldest one in the island but it has been able to renovate and get up-to-date with water trends. You will see that it’s a place that is perfectly adapted to children. There are areas for the kids with shallow pools and small attractions so that they can also enjoy the adrenaline of the slides. Aqualand has areas for adults as well, where you will be able to rest between slides. There are restaurants, bars, picnic areas…
Attractions are also thought for adults, if you are ready for a crazy experience. The security is primordial, so you will see numerous lifeguards that will look after you and your family.
The best is to stay there for a whole day, as the prices aren’t precisely cheap. We suggest you take a backpack with sandwiches and water.

2. Hidropark, in Alcúdia
It’s one of the smallest aquatic parks in Mallorca, and that’s why we suggest it if you are only thinking about staying during the morning or the afternoon. The slides are very simple but they won’t let you down. As well, they are very well looked after and always look like new.
It is very well located, as it’s not very far from the Port in Alcúdia, an area in which travelers will be able to enjoy a nice evening after spending the morning in the water park.
