Port Aventura Weather
Nestled in the heart of the vibrant resort of Salou, Port Aventura enjoys the same dry, sunny climate that defines the Costa Dorada. Summer temperatures typically range from 28 to 32° Celsius May to August, so shorts and tee shirts all round – especially on the log flume!
Despite the water rides and air conditioning, the sun can be quite severe in the height of summer, especially when queuing for the most popular rides, so don’t forget plenty of sun lotion to stay safe on your Port Aventura holidays.
Things To Do on Port Aventura Holidays
Not only is Port Aventura is home to the only eight-loop rollercoaster in the world, Dragon Kahn, there are literally hundreds of rides and attractions spread over the five world zones; the Far West, China, Mediterranean, Polynesia and Mexico, all offering their own regional flavour of excitement. From the Wild West cattle rampages of the Far West zone to the exotic Tutuki Splash log flume in Polynesia, the park offers enough entertainment and rides to keep the most energetic kids satisfied throughout your Port Aventura holidays!
In addition to the hundreds of rides and shows on offer, Port Aventura also puts on special seasonal shows for Christmas and Halloween, such as La Mina de Diablo – although an all-year round ride, a special horror walk was erected in 2006 to add a little spook to the queues for the rides! In addition to the seasonal flavour of some shows, the atmosphere of Port Aventura is very family-oriented, with a relaxed, easy going vibe throughout the whole park.
Much more than just a theme park, Port Aventura has three hotel complexes, one directly inside the park grounds, all with their own restaurants and bars to enjoy a relaxing meal and glass of wine after a thrilling day on the rides.
