This is a serious theme park, Spain's biggest and baddest, with a collection of wild rides - like Dragon Khan and Furios Baco, both clocking in at well over 100kph (65mph) - that will keep thrill junkies coming back for more. Port Aventura is the flagship park, divided into several "lands," such as the Wild West, Mexico, and China, with themed shows, restaurants, and gift shops. Though it could keep a family busy all day (or week), that's just the beginning.
In addition to Port Aventura, you could also visit several other parks - Port Aventura Aquatic Park, with dolphin shows and water slides; the Beach club, right on the Caribbean; and Golf PortAventura, with three premium golf courses. Savvy travelers can find packages that include several parks, special shows, and even discounts on hotels.
The closest airport to Port Aventura Park is Tarragona's Reus Airport (REU), with just handful of year-round direct flights to major European cities from April through September. It's about 15 minutes by bus or taxi between the airport and the park.
Renfe trains stop at the Port Aventura station, right at the park, while the AVE line's Camp de Tarragona station has regular bus service to the park. There are several hotels right next to Port Aventura, catering to park goers.
