We visited the Big Pineapple. It was very informative and a definite place to visit. We bought Pineappel jam and all sorts of pineapple snacks.

We visited of Easter and was amazed at how pineapple farming works. Very interesting information that shows the whole process. The climb up is per level so it is not scary for children. Best fresh pineapple that I have every eaten

Stop here especially if you have kids in the car. They will learn so much and the climb up the pineapple will be enjoyed by all.
