In 1985 the first water park to be built in Spain, AQUALANDIA, was opened in Benidorm. Since then, it has become not only one of the largest water parks in the world, but one of the best endowed with attractions, services and customer support.
With these precedents, and next to the Water Park facilities MUNDOMAR was built in 1996. Mundomar is a park of exotic marine animals which contributes to promote the respect for nature and environment, deploying a symbiosis of entertainment and culture.
In April 2004, the AQUALANDIA MUNDOMAR FOUNDATION was born. The Foundation develops different activities, highlighting among them the development of dolphin programs for children around the world with physical or mental dysfunctions. These programs are completely free to their families.
