  • We vacation to several years by Algarve and I think we need only come to this zoo. I think that while little turns out to be funny for those who have small kids, but I think the ratio quality/price is exaggerated!!!!! When there is a world with krazi tickets adults who get the €6 in kiosks and zoomarine you get the €19, I don't see how that value are €16 and in kiosks to 15 ... ... I saw that they're having a pool which is also important for at least the staff refresh at the end of the tour! Moreover, like ... Plus the many animals released the past us through the Park, in particular birds etc. ..

Where to stay in Lagos

The historical city core of Lagos is packed full of colorful buildings and bustling streets, some of which date as far back as the medieval period. Though the hotels in the central district are on the expensive side, you can put yourself right in the middle of the city's best restaurants, bars, and tourist attractions by reserving a room there. The center and outlying residential neighborhoods also boast plenty of more affordable options, including smaller hotels, guesthouses, and family-run inns that offer fewer amenities but put you in good position to get out and about on foot. As Lagos is a relatively small town, you'll be within walking distance of both of its premier stretches of beach from nearly any lodging. Those with a car or transportation can get even further afield to experience other nearby coastal areas.
