Rancho Texas is located on the outskirts of Puerto del Carmen as well as on one of our many trips recently, we decided to spend a day out their using the children. Rancho Texas features amongst its attractions, an Indian amphitheatre where we witnessed a stunning display in falconry, a Nature Park where our children watched and also enjoyed some of the animals, a Goldmine The location where the big water-wheel runs water to gold-bearing sands where the kids can try to look for hidden treasure and an Indian Village where they took a ride in a Indian canoes and visited the Tepees.

If you are seeking somewhere for that adults, then why return when they host one of many now legendary Rancho Texas Country and Western Nights.

We started our visit in the Nature Park, location of a wide variety of Animals and Birds. This area includes 'The Opera'- A round enclosure with a great variety of singing birds to experience amazing sounds, 'The Promenade of colour' - having its sensational variety of birds and colors, 'Liliput Farm', where the children held the worlds smallest farm animals and saw much larger ones as Turtles, Iguanas, Armadillos and Prairie dogs.

Before we're able to finish, we had been drawn to crowd gathering inside the Indian Amphitheatre (1 of 3 live shows we might witness at the time). Once we settled down, the guide entertained us with a fantastic falconry demonstration, part of involving the falcons flapping people about the head with thweir huge wings since they swoop from high gantries towards the central 'stage'.

After this, we took the youngsters to the Indian Village to calm them down somewhat. Our youngest (4 at the time) played in the Tepees, paddled a Canoes and discovered 'Treasure' having followed the lake from the big water-wheel for the gold-bearing sands. Our eldest (9 at the time) think it is too young for him but decided to 'look after his brother' and clearly enjoyed himself, although he denied it at that time.

Next i was attracted to district area as we were informed a second show would begin in Quarter-hour time. Like everyone else, we decided this could be a great time to have something to consume and drink and were surprised to find out our Falconry 'expert' helping out behind the food counter (we assumed he had washed his hands !). This could not be our last meeting, while he hosted the Parrot show whilst we'd lunch. Another good show and a few great pictures for family.
Our two boys wanted to let off some steam, therefore we allow them to play for a while within the adventure play area, before you go back to complete out tour with the animals.

Our third show during the day, would have been to be the greatest. Our 'expert' returned (clearly multi-talented) and decided he'd jump in to a pit with the Alligators. He then crept up behind one and enjoyed it (in case you're wondering, he's very swift reflexes). Toward the end of the show he made a decision to hop on the Alligator and sis finale involved holding the Alligators mouth closed between his chin and the chest - some show !

The children were as amazed once we were plus it just about rounded off an excellent day out and fantastic value at 14 Euros per adult and 9 Euros for him or her (under twos cost nothing).
Probably the most modern of Lanzarote's attractions, Rancho Texas, still has an element of the Manrique influence, with 60,000 m� of theme park, made with the most respect towards the ambience and everything constructed with natural materials such as stones and wood.
