Water Parks

Orlando is known as the Theme Park Capital of the World and of course, water parks have a big share on this claim. So, hire an airport taxi, apply sunscreen, put on your pair of sunglasses and be ready to spend a whole day under and over water at Orlando's water parks. If you have a waterproof camera even better. You can capture your best “Instagrammable” moments at the countless wave pools, waterslides, and lazy rivers to the point that your aquatic thrills will hit the maximum. Be aware though to check the current status of your favorite waterparks as they are subject to seasonal closings.

Universal Volcano Bay

If you spend your day at the Florida Universal Studios and Universal Islands of Adventure, this waterpark is the ideal place to relax and cool down. The theme of the Universal Volcano Bay is about the South Pacific ambiance that is split into four different areas; the Volcano, the Wave Village, the River Village, and the Rainforest Village. Every region has its sub-areas with many different waterslides, rivers and pools, so the fun never ends and the combinations are limitless.

Discovery Cove

The difference of the Discovery Cove with the rest of the waterparks is for the animal encounters. Additionally, the price you pay for your visit (and having fun) is all-inclusive which means unlimited food, beverages, and if you are 21 and up, alcohol. Even if you need fresh and clean towers or snorkeling gear, these are free of charge as they are included in the admission. Pretty great, right?

Discover Cove always delivers, so if you are wondering if the animal encounter experience is true, yes it is! Swim along dolphins and sharks and be ready to capture the best photos of your life. Your friends back home are going to get jealous indeed! Oh, did I mention that you can get a personalized message from a dolphin? Your childhood wish just came true!

So, there you have the top reasons to visit Orlando. If you can visit a place where you can eat and drink well, participate in entertainment events, educate yourself with local and international culture, and relax with the choices offered to you, always think of Orlando.
