In fact it's a little bit colder than it looks but it's a beautiful place anyway.

I love the scene variety .. In Sabah, Malaysia we have oil palm trees (5-8 metres tall) and coconut palm (some 30 metres tall) .. Yours (coconut?) in the picture is what palm? .. Our hills and mountains (Mt Kinabalu + Kinabalu National Park, both in Kundasang district, is one world famous world heritage site) are forested or "jungled" .. In general, I think we are more cloudy (Sabah has equatorial/tropical climate .. 2 seasons only: wet and dry .. monsoon rainfall = some 140" a year or 353 cm .. from losp

No, losp, it's called a Palm Canaria and it has no eatable fruits whatsoever. I even don't know if it's growing naturally anymore, I'd say all of those palms I've seen are planted by humans. I may be wrong about that but normally the planting of them looks very symmetric and they will be used for making a view or scene better. You should save your jungle, I haven't seen a jungle in Europe, Africa or Northamerica, even our woods are not really natural anymore...:(
And: In Gran Canaria there's almost desert climate, very few rainfall.
