“Beautifull Donkey Safari. Made all in sustainable materials, where you sit on wooden logs, under a wooden roof, decorated with a lot of old canarian stuff. You cannot choose your food here, it is already decided, for 10 euro per person you get Pork Roast with canarian potatoes, paella, Garbanzada, icecream, cake, coffee and drinsk included, and you can have as many times you like. Right next to you can go for a donkey ride around the farm. They also sell privately made olive oil, olives in glass etc. Bring cash.”
