    Very Interesting excursion.

    I recommend it 100x100, you get a very good idea what the island is like, its forests, agriculture ... etc. Our guide explained everything very well, both in French and Spanish, because we were two groups together. He took us to many high points with magnificent views, and on top of that it was a very clear day. The almoşo also came into the excursion, it was quite good (Soup, swordfish in batter with potatoes and fried banana, and a side tray with rice, cooked potatoes, peas, and fried white sweet potato. All with local wines, good dessert and coffee .. In short, an excursion of about 6 hours well served ..
