With only 48 hours to explore a massive multithemed park and wearing flimsy shoes certainly not made for much more than a stroll, eight journalists and media personalities were given the opportunity to feel like a kid again at PortAventura.With almost no sleep, the group invited to PortAventura by travel agency Nakhal gratefully climbed into an air-conditioned bus to make the hour-and-a-half trip from Barcelona to Spain's largest resort, located on the Costa Dorada, in the port town of Salou.PortAventura is the first theme park to be established in Spain and is the second largest in all of Europe, boasting approximately 4 million visitors a year. It is divided into to six themes and has four strategically placed hotels: Hotel PortAventura, Hotel Caribe, Hotel El Paso and Hotel Gold River. Every area has elaborate performances each day during the high season, and the park is set to host the Cirque du Soleil: Kooza show starting next month as well as a new theme, Ferrari Land, in 2016 . We were given only two days to explore the 120-hectare resort, a seemingly impossible task. After grabbing a quick lunch at the beach, it was time to leave Salou and make the 45-minute trip back to PortAventura – there were only a few hours left to discover the rest of the park away from the group.
