Aloe Park - a working banana plantation, open to the public


Aloe Park (formerly known as Jardines de Atlantico) represents an industry that is prevalent on Tenerife - cultivation of bananas.



It offers an insight into a traditional Tenerife way of life, while still operating as a commercial banana plantation.

As well as bananas, there are examples of different Tenerife crops, plus a few animals dotted about.



The bananera also has a museum devoted to farming through the ages.

It is found just off the TF-1 motorway at junction 26, on the road heading towards Buzanada.

Mondays-Fridays9am - 4:30pm


The plantation offers guided tours four times a day:
10am, 11:30am, 1pm, 3:30pm


There is a free bus from Los Cristianos, Las Americas and Las Galletas.
