Additionally, visitors will be able to delve into the region’s rich culture and heritage, along with experiencing the time-honoured practices of farm operation. They’ll also have the opportunity to discover diverse crops like red bananas, star fruit (dragon fruit), and black sapote, also known as chocolate fruit, or exotic plants difficult to find like longan, yuzu, or jackfruit. The tour includes a visit to the oldest mango tree in the Iberian Peninsula, a forest of hundred-year-old cherimoya trees, and a modern mango plantation. They are taught about the pollination of pitahayas and, with luck, they may spot chameleons, partridges, eagles, or even a royal owl.

At the end of the tour, visitors are taken to the traditional farmhouse, enjoy a fruit tasting, and given the opportunity to take home a specially ground and prepared coffee package from the farm as a memento of their experience.
