PortAventura and the Costa Caribe Aquatic Park are the two fun parks par excellence in Salou. However, the city has continued to add an extremely varied range of activities, which are complemented by both traditional and daring proposals – including karting, zip line circuits, quad bike outings, jeep safaris, horse riding, Segway tours, and a jungle-inspired children’s park. Rafael López-Monné
