Zoos in Estepona
Selwo Aventura
Choosing a day in the calendar and dedicating it to see animal species which can not be seen in your environment is always a great idea in my opinion. We may not like that the animals can not be free, but the Zoo has changed so much that it is a pleasure to discover how they have improved its habitats. These parks are ideal for teaching children to respect, love and admire nature, trees, animals ... In the picture I show you an impressive Crowned Crane, I do not think you will ever see one of this near your home ...

Sonora Beach
Definitely one of my favorite spots between Estepona and San Pedro Alcántara. The location is amazing, a place to chill-out and enjoy Mojitos (hmmm). There is a DJ playing music and Balinese beds on the beach so you can not be better off... Well yes, during the evening performances the atmosphere is even better - if that's possible. You can also have a snack. A great place to spend sunny days and sunsets.
