Banana Plantation and a Farm by Tuk Tuk from Costa Adeje

42 reviews
The Caldera del Rey is a vast, shallow crater with banana groves and protected parkland—one of Tenerife’s natural highlights—but it lies a bit beyond walking distance from nearby towns. This tour takes you from Puerto Colon to the Caldera del Rey monument via tuk-tuk—a small, fun three-wheeled vehicle—for a guided walk in a banana plantation and farm. End the tour with a stop in a farm shop for a smoothie made with local products.

We were staying in La Laguna and one wet morning took the tram (line 1) to the museum. There is a tram stop just outside. Unfortunately it was not a great experience. The man selling the tickets either had a very complicated system or was very bored. Descending into the museum there is a small eating area with a few vending machines and the interactive exhibits are scattered around the oval hall. Surrounding these are other exhibits. As mentioned previously, most of the exhibits were not explained in English, which is fair enough, and lots were broken. What was odd was that one exhibit, explaining why hot air balloons fly, did have an English translation but it explained the opposite of the facts - that they rise because the air inside is COLDER than the air outside - very odd. There is a Planetarium exhibit but this is only for school kids till 1pm. Our visit was cut very short when a load of (unsupervised) school kids descended on the place and it was soon very clear why so many exhibits were broken. The whole place is concrete and the noise was deafening. At the entrance they describe their gift shop in glowing terms - thankfully, it was practically non-existent. Go in the afternoon and you may have a better time, which is why I have given a generous 3 stars.

The building itself is an interesting piece of modern architecture. What is inside was great when it was new, but by now it is in dire need of a major overhaul. Exhibits are visibly dated, many were broken down and not working. The room for small kids had some nice toys, yet they were worn down, visibly dirty and half of them did not work anymore, the stand for drawing missed paper and had just some broken crayons etc. As other mentioned all explanations are in Spanish, which was not a problem for us but might be for others. Also, there is no cafe on site which is surprising - there are just vending machines accepting only coins, since I did not have any we could not use them. Finally, be aware that the museum has no parking - we just parked on the street, as there was space available, but I am not sure if you can count on it or if we were just lucky.

This museum was wonderful. It had so many interesting exhibits. The kids loved it. Only downfalls, acoustics were bad ear defenders a must for children on spectrum and only spanish explanations next to exhibits. However, I would happily return

There were a lot of educational science games but unfortunately there were no English translations, there was opportunities to learn about the planet's ect but not for people that don't speak/ read Spanish.

It was soooo amazing! If you are into science and have kids of any (and I mean it – any) age with you, that’s the place to be. We have spent 3h in this museum and honestly – we could have spent twice as much. It’s very hands-on experience, there is even room for toddlers (toddler science – how cool is that??) to explore. My kids (5 & 8) had an amazing time in this museum and we will definitely return on our next visit to Tenerife.
