- This is a lovely walking trip. Based in 2 places on opposite sides of the island, the walks are not too challenging and take you through some stunning countryside. The hotels are different but both very well situated and we visited different restaurants every night, including an authentic paella experience and a cave restaurant on the final night! We gelled well as a group but what really made this trip was the tour leader - Emma was utterly fabulous in every way, dealing with some uncooperative weather, buses, sore knees (mine!) and everything else we could throw at her - all with a huge smile on her face. On the 'day off' she mentioned that a friend of hers owned a plantation nearby and had invited us all to visit for a look round. We took the offer up - and what a fabulous visit! Having had a look round and seen the variety of trees (avocado, mango, papaya and many more), met the dogs, seen the well, pool, bar and more, we were then invited into their home where a fabulous spread of avocado, cheeses, fresh mango juice and even mango liqueur had been laid on for us. The generosity was amazing and it was the moment of the trip!
