Come summer 2011 and families would be planning for a cool holiday with their kids. Well, here is one that could be tried for some real-time fun – PortAventura – the largest of theme parks in Spain.

Situated on the Costa Dorada, PortAventura is a place your kids are going to love. Not Donald Duck or Mickey Mouse here, you’ll get the whole world as its theme – the five “themes” being the Mediterranean, Mexico, the Wild West, Polynesia and China. And for your holiday 2011 base, what can match the sprawling Cambrils Park complete with camping, caravanning and bungalow living options along with two pool complexes? There are good facilities for a number of sports as well.

The rides are cool and the Universal Studious has taken care in minute detailing while designing the theme park which actually gives the feel of film sets. So while you are in a ride, you are in a particular place, say the China zone has rides that go like tea-pots, dragons and sampans. The Mexico one has tropical vegetation and jungle sounds to create a real ambience that goes with the theme. The Wild West, Polynesia and the Mediterranean are equally exciting – especially for kids.

Asides on this theme-park holiday to Costa Dorada in 2011 include visit to the Roman ruins at Tarraco (the amphitheatre here is a must see), dine on the street-side eating joints of Tarragona, do a lazy walking tour through the city which is quite slow-paced in its lifestyle.

A Brief on Costa Dorada
The golden shores of Costa Dorada (southern region of Catalonia) are its main appeal – Costa Dorada the name translates as the Golden Coast! Be it as a good choice for holidays to Spain in 2011, or otherwise, Costa Dorada has been a favourite with those who are here even for once. This part of Spain is distinctly different from the northern Costa Brava in that the shores are less rugged here and fine golden sands stretch for miles on end.

The beautiful beaches, shallow crystal-clear waters, the small towns, the picture-perfect farmlands, the verdant vineyards and the old castle present to one’s mind the harmony of the old and the new, nature and mankind. All the towns are tourist-friendly wherein one can get access to enough options for leisure and entertainment. There is no dearth for holiday accommodation as well – apartments, villas, hotels and campsites galore.

So what are you waiting for? Costa Dorada is ready to welcome you for your 2011 summer holidays in Spain!
