An absolute 'must' if you visit La Palma. Fran takes you along on an inspirational, spiritual and philosophical journey through a fantastic ecosystem. Not only platanos (the small bananas that are produced on the Canaries) grow here, but hundreds of other plants like papaya, broccoli,...More

If you are interested in food and environment, you should not miss this visit! The guide is a passionate and he provides you with information which is much wider than the banana plantation. It is well worth the visit!
