It was alright to see the plantation, but as mentioned before by others, there is not a lot of information about the process on site. And weirdly, we couldn’t even buy pineapples there!! Also when we wanted to order them in a restaurant, or buy...More

You get to see the green houses that have been built to grow pineapples. You see them in different stages of growth and the techniques used to keep them small and sweet.

We stopped by for 15-20 minutes on the way back to the hotel. Interesting facts about the plantation, self-guided, cute gift shop. Great little stop if you have extra time. Free.

This is the only pineapple plantation we visited, so it is difficult to make comparisons. The tour is not guided. One can see the various stages of pineapple growth and cultivation. The shop is beautiful, but quite expensive.

15 min is more than enough to see the few greenhouses open for public here and look around in the gift shop. A short printed brochure on the process with some interesting facts is provided at the gift shop where free samples of pineapple liqueur...More

I was really looking forward to this visit. I had an idea about these pineapples from researching this trip. It was difficult to find, was just a bunch of greenhouses of pineapples at various growing stages (with a lot of repeats). Some basic information was...More

I visited Arruda Pineapple Plantation during a tour in Sao Miguel. It's a nice place to see the different stages of growing a pineapple and a great place to buy authentic Pineapple products (such as liqueur, jam, mustard and more).
