Travel for approximately 45 minutes and arrive at the largest banana and coconut plantation in the country. Taste some fresh coconut water taken from the coconut trees. Continue inland until the village of Orgãos where you will learn to make cuscuz (a cake made from corn flour) and fidjós (fried banana mixed with wheat) with a local family. Next, make your way to the foot of the highest mountain on the island to visit a traditional rum distillery.

Afterward, be returned to your hotel in Praia.
