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.
