5. Costa Adeje, SpainWhirl down the amazing slides in Siam Water Park

Lastminute.com reviewer Elle says, “We visited Siam Water Park twice – it is a must do. The slides are amazing, best water park we have ever visited and cost of food and entry was great value for money. Only a 5 minute drive from Costa Adeje or can be walked. This is an excellent day-[out]. Would recommend arriving 10 minutes before opening time and going to the LEFT when entering. Some of the best rides are on the left, most people go to the right to set up near the wave pool, therefore you can get loads of slides done quickly with literally no queues.”Read more
