Madrid with family or friends
Whoever said that Madrid is boring is lying and here I will show you some of the best plans to enjoy your holidays with your family or surrounded by your friends.
The Zip Lines of Cercedilla
A plan for the most intrepid adventurers, in the heart of the Madrid mountains in the municipality of Cercedilla you will find the Amazonia Cercedilla adventure park, one of the largest in Europe, where you will have obstacle courses in up to seven different scenarios with more than one hundred and fourteen different activities, zip lines of up to four hundred and seventy meters in length and endless activities full of adrenaline supervised by a monitor, just remember this, HOLD ON HARD!
Madrid Amusement Park
For the funniest and most unbridled there is a choice. Located in the Batán area is the Madrid Amusement Park with access by car or public transport and a price of approximately twenty euros. It is a perfect plan for the hot months where you can enjoy a calm atmosphere or stronger emotions. to the taste of the consumer.
In it you have picnic areas, restaurants and of course, a total of thirty-two common attractions, four water and seven roller coasters, yes, you heard right SEVEN! The question is, do you dare to enter his chilling house of terror?
On the other hand, there is the Warner Park, it is atribute to the characters of WARNER BROS AND DC COMICS, located in San Martin de la Vega, this park offers fun and shows at close range. Its theme and setting will make you look like a little Hollywood. If you are fearful let me tell you that this theme park holds the title of the safest in Spain, if you are a fan of Warner Bros you can take a picture with Bugs Bunny and if you are one of the most unbridled you are in luck, here is the fifth fall attraction world’s largest free.
Faunia Madrid and Zoo Aquarium
Penguins in Madrid? In summer? Definitely yes. And lions, giraffes, rhinos, sharks, bears, orangutans, sea seals and even dolphins! These two spaces are completely dedicated to animals, simulating their natural habitats and offering a unique experience to visitors.
The older ones will enjoy seeing the faces of the little ones and they will be able to see from the most adorable animals to the fiercest up close. On the contrary, the little ones will be speechless and hallucinate, they will learn about the animal world and boast of having a thousand anecdotes to tell their friends. Here’s a piece of advice: wear a raincoat at the dolphin show.
In Las Rozas de Madrid is one of the best karting in Europe. Founded by the two-time world champion rally driver Carlos Sainz from whom it is named. You can feel like a real driver and live the experience of racing on the track as if it were a Grand Prix. It is a perfect plan for friends or for a family that is fond of the motor world. In the summer months you have the Carlos Sainz camp full of activities for the little ones in the house and driving courses for the older fans.
Beat the heat in Madrid
The San Juan reservoir is one of the favorite destinations on Saturdays in Madrid. With six hundred and fifty hectares of fresh water, a blue flag beach, water activities and even the possibility of sailing, this reservoir is the ideal place to cool off in the hot summer months. You have a sandy beach and beach bars to eat or drink that cold beer that we like so much. The fastest way to get there is by car, on the M501 road, in an hour you will be nailing the umbrella.
If what you want is to mix fun with aquatic plans, you have to visit the Aquopolis of Madrid, located in Villanueva de la Cañada, it is the largest aquatic theme park in Europe, it has a total of 21 attractions for both adults and children. . It has a large children’s area, green rest areas, a VIP area and the jewel in the crown, Malibu Beach, a large beach of fine white sand of more than two thousand square meters in the purest Caribbean style with Hawaiian touches, in it You can enjoy the sun’s rays or the shade in the comfort provided by the available Balinese beds. I DO NOT LOSE IT!
Manual tourist leisure
If you are what is called a textbook tourist who likes to get lost in the city and discover the secret corners, Madrid is still your city. You can take your camera and lose yourself in the Madrid of the Austrians, where you will visit unique enclaves such as the Royal Palace of Madrid (one of the largest in the world, and the largest in Europe), the Plaza de Oriente, the Teatro Real, the Monastery of the Incarnation, the Church of San Ginés, the iconic and unmistakable Plaza Mayor (where the squid sandwich is a tradition) and many monuments and buildings full of history.
Madrid, summer and lots of love
For those who decide to spend their holidays as a couple in the city of Madrid, there is a great leisure offer. Lovers can visit trendy restaurants and terraces (I recommend the RIU Madrid terrace), have an ice cream in old Madrid, enjoy one of the best sunsets at the Debod Temple viewpoint, very close to this location. There is the Madrid Cable Car where you can see the city from the air, another option is to walk through the retreat or the country house or even take a boat in one of its lakes.
Another alternative is a romantic getaway, I recommend Nomading Camp Sierra de Gredos, feel in the middle of nature and have the comforts that a hotel offers if possible, and, if we add to that a panoramic roof where you can see the stars, it becomes a Idyllic place to disconnect from everything as a couple. Its private garden and outdoor Jacuzzi are the icing on the cake to convince you of this getaway. Enjoy the firmament lovebirds!
It is clear that the capital of Spain offers plans and activities for the summer months that adapt to all tastes, needs and situations, whether alone, as a couple, with your family or surrounded by your friends. If you decide to spend your holidays in Madrid this summer, remember to do some of the activities that we have suggested here. You will not regret!
