Cocqui Water Park Opens at the El Conquistador
I never used to think of water parks as particularly luxurious but that's been changing lately with parks springing up everywhere from Bahrain to Slovakia. Check out the Coqui Water Park in the Marina Village of the El Conquistador Resort in Las Croabas, Puerto Rico. The new park is part of the property's $120 million renovation and is the first water park ever to sit along the Caribbean Sea and overlook the Atlantic Ocean. It includes an 8,000-square-foot lazy river, 253-foot double inner tube slide, high-speed, 40-foot vertical drop, and 26-foot serpentine flume body slide. There is also a 25,554-square-foot sunbathing deck, 9,000-square-foot infinity edge pool,kids' pool area with a Coqui kids slide. The resort also includes a 26,000-square-foot Golden Door Spa. Packages at the lavish El Conquistador Resort include a full Caribbean buffet breakfast daily, water park passes and airport transportation and prices vary greatly depending on the season with rooms in the summer starting in the $240 range and zooming up to over $1000 per night for the larger suites.
