This small zoo a short distance from the main southern resorts doesn't receive the same publicity as the bigger parks on Tenerife and subsequently can be difficult to find, but it's worth seeking out for an up close and personal experience with some cheeky chaps. Part of the zoo involves sharing a large cage with lemurs, small primates, tortoises and iguanas. Buy a couple of bags of food at the entrance; one for the zone where the monkeys roam free and one for the caged animals beyond who often miss out in the feeding stakes.
