What people are saying about Arico

It has been an amazing experience. We will certainly repeat. Also Oscar, the guide, knew a lot about the subject and he did it in a very dynamic way. We are delighted.

Had an excellent time. We learned so much about the constellations and it was cool to see Jupiter and Saturn through the telescope. Highly recommend.

That was amazing. Place and the stars were absolutely great. Don’t forget to take warm clothes, because it might be very cold at night.

A very successful evening with lots of information under the breathtaking night sky in Teide National Park!
