Good to know

Best time to visit

As mentioned, the best time to visit PortAventura is whenever the kids are in school.  In terms of weather, though, you might enjoy late spring or early fall, when you can really take advantage of that mild Mediterranean climate.  Try shooting for May, early June, September, or October.  Mid-summer brings the heat and the crowds, so you’ll definitely want to stock up on sunscreen and should consider wearing a hat to block the sun.  Winter presents no problems for a PortAventura tour.  The nights will be cool and crisp, but you’ll find it’s still rather sunny during the daytime.

Getting there

Getting to PortAventura is easy!  If you’re coming from Barcelona, you can simply hop on the train at Barcelona Sants and arrive at PortAventura just 75 minutes later.  Alternatively, you can take the bus from Barcelona Nord bus station and make one transfer at Tarragona.  Taking a taxi from Barcelona to PortAventura would cost nearly $200.  But, you can bus it to Tarragona and then take a $25 cab ride right up to the PortAventura’s main gate.  Finally, if you’re driving, you want to take highway A-7 before using the off-ramp that’s clearly marked for PortAventura.  From Barcelona, it’ll take you about one hour and 30 minutes. 

Money saving tips

Want to get the most bang for your buck?  Consider picking up the 3-day pass, which allows you to visit the main theme park for 2 days and the water park for 1 day.  That way, you receive a little discount on the ticket price.
