About
Visit our ecological Aloe Vera plantations. Go through a 5000 year old history of this plant in a guided tour of 30 minutes, in which you can cut an Aloe Vera leaf, taste its pulp and flowers, and of course test all of our Aloe Vera products made from its pure gel. On the southern plantation, located near Gran Tarajal, we have about 2000 Aloe Vera plants, 650 olive trees, a vineyard and more than 100 cactus figs which we use to elaborate our natural products. On the northern plantation, which is located at the base of the DE LA ARENA Volcano in the town of La Oliva, you can enjoy a volcanic experience. In La Oliva, we also have an Aloe-Therapy centre, where you can enjoy a relaxing massage or a regenerating treatment, all done with fresh Aloe Vera.

    What an experience
    Visited here while on a tour of fuerteventura, in early September. I had an amazing experience learning and watching Marcelina teach about how to harvest and use the Aleo Vera. Being able to try all the products was very useful when deciding which one to purchase. All the staff were lovely and welcoming. Will definitely be ordering online in the future. Thanks you

    Making Fuerteventura proud
    We read the great reviews and decided to pop by, and we were not disappointed, even thought it was on a day when the production was closed. We learned so much about their local and amazing products, we were not able to buy them all at once, but luckily they have a webshop as well. Our guide spoke none the less than eight different languages and were able to entertain several visitors at the same time. And not to forget the cat, "Whitney Houston", entertaining the boys while the ladies took their time in the shop!

    Great visit
    Unfortunately there wasn't any production happening the day we visited but we saw all the machinery anyway. We spent some time looking round the aloe vera plantation and everything on offer in the extensive shop area. The two members of staff were on hand for any advice on the products if needed. Very friendly but unobtrusive. Definitely worth a visit

    A great tour
    Had a nice tour round Finca Canarias Aloe Vera. The little flowers on the Aloe Vera are delicious. Not sure about the Aloe Vera itself, that is definitely an acquired taste The 30 minute guided tour provides a lot of information, with the added bonus of testing some of the Aloe Vera products was a bonus

Didi made this visit for us. We decided to visit on a dusty overcast day but our exp reindeer here made it sunshine all the way. Didi who is from Belgium gave us a demonstration that appeared to us like it was just for us and very individual. We timed it right to watch them filleting the Aloe plant leaves which looked just like fish fillets. Didi explained all the process and about the history of this plant. This place is free to visit, all the staff we met were so very friendly and although you are in their shop there was no pressure or hard sell to buy any of the many aloe products. We did though end up buying and my wife is very pleased with her purchases and the special little gifts also put into our bag to take away. We spent nearly two hours there walking round the aloe field and generally mooching about. Thank you all for your hospitality and especially Didi (who does not listen or read about the news)

I was there in March 2021 during the week, so when I arrived no other visitors were there. My host was Didi, a very friendly person, who showed me around, talk about aloe vera, I even tried to eat its flowers :) So it is really informative and interesting to know about plants and this farm. I bought some products and got also gifts, which is very sweet :) Thanks Didi :)
And the visit costs nothing.

Small yet well organised aloe vera farm. You can have a glimpse on how the cosmetics are done. You can get a lot of info which of the products will be best for your skin etc. Prices are higher then in a supermarket, but definitely worth it!

On a random drive on one of our days at Fuerteventura we decided that we need to go to some place where they sell Aloe Vera products, this is after all something Fuerteventura is famous for. We used TripAdvisor and it lead us the the best possible place to learn about Aloe Vera. When we came, we where greeted in all languages possible, and where then guided by an English speaking individual that showed us the plant, the various types of plants, and the anatomy of the plant, how the products are used and why the are so good. After a through tour we tasted some Aloe Vera juice, tried some lotions and more. The tour was great and afterward we could buy the products, which was created on the farm. I bought a small Aloe plant and the girlfriend some gel. We highly recommend a visit to this place. Friendliest people on the island will great you.

Great talk and demonstrations from the lovely staff member, we all got given many testers of different aloe Vera products, all having different benefits to health. Got the chance to look round the shop and buy the different products. Great visit as part of the day out.

I recently visited Finca Canarias Aloe Farm with my family while on vacation in Fuerteventura. First note, that there are two Finca Canarias brand farms, one in the North in La Olivia and one in the Southern part of the island in Gran Tarajal which is the one we visited. Also note there are many other brands of aloe farm visits, but Finca Canarias is the biggest and best!
The tour stared with walking through the aloe plants so we could get some amazing photos. While my wife was taking pictures, our guide took time to show me and my daughter how slice open an aloe stalk and get the goo out. This was her favorite part of the tour as he let her work the knife and scraper and even gave her an extra stalk to work on herself.
Inside the building they have a store selling all kinds of aloe based products. You can also watch the production of the aloe products going on through the viewing window. We took the time to try many of the products and purchase some things to bring home. We really like the 99% aloe lotion which is their best selling product. We also purchased a bottle of the Aloe Liquor to bring home for friends to test and everyone likes the unique taste and texture.
All in all this was a great tour given by the friendliest people we've met on the islands.
Some key notes...the guides speak multiple languages so don't be worried if you can't speak Spanish. The day we went it was very quiet, but we were told you should book in advance as they can get very large tour groups coming through. All in all a great time!
