  • No se corresponde la visita

    No hay visita guiada. Desde el sitio me dijeron que sólo se hacen visitas guiadas a partir de grupos de 10 personas, por lo que no cumplió mis expectativas ya que mi hijo es pequeño y no sabe leer carteles, lo que quería era que le explicaran todo el proceso. Desde el sitio nos lo explicaron y nos devolvieron la diferencia, pero por favor, modifíquenlo ya que la descripción de la excursión no se corresponde

  • Tolle Erfahrung

    Es war für uns ein sehr interessanter Blick hinter die Kulissen einer Bananenplantage! Auch wenn die gebuchte Führung leider nicht möglich war (Gelddifferenz haben wir sofort zurück erhalten) so waren wir mit der Selbstführung und den erläuternden Stationen sehr zufrieden, denn wir hatten am Ende die Möglichkeit, alle unsere Fragen beim Besitzer loszuwerden und bei der Verkostung noch mehr zu erfahren. Alles in allem eine tolle Erfahrung nur bitte verbessert die Ausschilderung und gebt auf den Vouchern auch die Adresse an - wir haben es nur durch die Hilfe eines Tankstellenmitarbeiters gefunden.


    La Finca Las Margaritas es un lugar donde podrás aprender y disfrutar dentro de un entorno rodeado de plataneras y con un excelente guía (el amigo Adolfo) propietario de la plantación que te explicará muy amablemente todo lo referente al cultivo del plátano canario y te ofrecerá degustación de diversos productos derivados del mismo. En fin, una experiencia inolvidable.
