Thus, they have visited Clisol Agro, where its manager and Honorary Ambassador of El Ejido, Lola Gómez, has had the opportunity to explain the tourist activity that develops in its two cultivated hectares. An activity focused on guided visits to three groups, schoolchildren, tourists and professionals from the agricultural sector, to whom it shows modern agriculture that is also respectful of the environment.

In the same way, they have been able to enjoy other tourist areas such as Almerimar, Balerma, the Castillo de Guardias Viejas or the Carabineros Barracks to show them the tourist potential that the municipality has for the creation of new unique and differentiating products, from the center from agricultural and gastronomic experiences to a Mediterranean garden and maritime paths.
