Stay right at the heart of the action
To begin with, let’s start with the hotel on the premises. In 2002, PortAventura World opened its first ever hotel in the entire complex. A milestone that paved the way to a full-service resort where you can enjoy a holiday without even leaving the premises. The hotel recreates a town on the Catalan coast with its squares, villages, bars, etc., creating a perfect and peaceful environment. All the buildings surround the lake and its shores are themed with boats, small ports, fishermen’s nets and a host of other details.
Fun in the water
There’s also the Caribe Aquatic Park. From 4 June to 11 September, you can visit Caribe Aquatic Park and experience all kinds of summer emotions. If you love to chill, then you can do that right there. It goes without saying that if you and your family also like adrenaline-charged thrills, then the mood and facilities here are also perfect. Many of Caribe Aquatic Park’s attractions are suitable for everyone.
