La experiencia fué de lo mejor. Paseamos por las preciosas calles de este pueblo y visitamos su museo. Miguel nos explicó con lujo de detalles el origen y desarrollo de este bonito enclave mientras disfrutabamos de sus calles. Aprovechamos para tomar un refrigerio en uno de sus restaurantes disfrutando de la paz y tranquilidad que se respira en este lugar. Para repetir!
Wandertrip mit Einblick in die Kultur Fuerteventuras

Ein sehr tolles Wandererlebnis! Während der Wanderung wurde immer wieder etwas über die Geschichte und Kultur Fuerteventuras erzählt, was ich echt super fand, weil nicht viele Angebote in Fuerteventura einen tieferen kulturellen Einblick ermöglichen. Aber auch die Wanderung selbst war durch die verschiedenen Pfade und wunderschönen vielfältigen Landschaften sehr erlebnisreich! Und unserer Reiseführer war echt sehr herzlich und aufmerksam !
Insgesamt also ein tolles Erlebnis, besonders für Natur- und Kulturbegeisterte! Sogar meinem Bruder, der sonst kein Fan vom Wandern ist, hat es echt Spaß gemacht :)
Großartiger Urlaubsausflug

Die Wandertour ist sehr zu empfehlen. Der Tourguide Miguel geht auf alle Interessen seiner Begleiter ein. Er ist ein sehr aufgeschlossener und freundlicher Guide welcher nicht nur mit Kompetenz und Fachwissen glänzen kann. Man sieht auf der Tour viele schöne Ecken der Insel. Zudem ist für Botanikfreunde einiges dabei.
Good experience
