The Canary Islands is one of the world’s most intriguing archipelagos, with Fuerteventura being particularly popular when it comes to tourists. Located around one hundred kilometers off Morocco’s coast, it is the second largest island in thecanaries, and for many years it has been a exciting and vibrant vacation destination for holidaymakers, most notably Europeans. 
Not only does it offer a wealth of luxury resorts and hotels, but the predictable weather and unique terrain make it perfect for sports such as cycling and horse riding. Experiencing more than three thousand hours of sunshine each year, Fuerteventura is a welcome escape from the biting cold of autumn and winter for people in both Europe and North America, here are the top reasons to visit Fuerteventura in 2014! 

Baku Water Park

This grand water park gives you a chance to experience the joy of relaxing in the tropical heat of the sun, and it’s the perfect family attraction! Not only do the winds keep the air cool and dry while the clear skies ensure that the sunshine warms you up quickly after a swim, but located in Baku on the northern side of Fuerteventura, this water park is very easy to get to. If you’re looking for a chilled out day to catch up on your favourite book in the glorious sunshine, then the Baku Water Park is the place for you!

La Lajita Zoo

Although the beaches in Fuerteventura are simply gorgeous, you can’t spend all of your holiday soaking up the sun on the sands - you have to find some kind of adventure on Fuerteventura's terrestrial landscape! The La Lajita Zoo is one of the island’s most popular attractions, and it is home to over two hundred bird species as well as many exotic animals like giraffes and hippos. With some great places to eat and even a feeding and petting mini-zoo, this is undoubtedly a top day out in Fuerteventura.
