    After a small museum with explains the plants, its history and export you get to taste different types of bananas and you go to a big park full of banana palms. In the park there are also Cocoa and coffee trees.

    Here you can find interesting infos about Bananas. You will get infos about the fruit, where it comes from and what you can do with it. At the beginning you can also taste some of the bananas that are harvested nearby. Later you can go around the plantage to see many kinds of banana trees.

    It could be replaced by a book: too much reading for a museum.

    We were left to visit this museum but, on the road, we stopped on a banana farm and present workers have spoken us of their job and everything which turns banana goshawks for nearly an hour. At the Museum we had more interest to pay to hear the same thing. So we just do a little walk outside before returning. That said, the environment is nice.
