Traveling to Gran Canaria

Visiting Gran Canaria It is already an absolute success. Good weather, paradisiacal beaches and delicious cuisine. It also has an exceptional hotel offer, being able to find the best hotels in Gran Canaria at a really competitive price for most of the year. However, it is possible that we are not clear about what we can see in this destination, the truth is that a lot, a lot.

Puerto de Mogán

This fishing village has a wonderful charm. One of the most charismatic corners of the island. We can highlight, among others, the small channels that connect the fishing port with the marina. In addition, those old fishermen's houses that hug the slopes of the mountain or the newer ones, located on the shore, with bougainvillea on their facades and those doors and windows so characteristic for their color also stand out.


Teror should be a mandatory stop for all those who, in addition to nature, sun and water, want to know a little about the history of Gran Canaria. Among other charms, Teror has a beautiful old town with cobbled streets and hanging balconies. In addition, it has an XNUMXth-century basilica that guards the patron saint of the island, the Virgen del Pino.

Guayadeque ravine

Between the municipalities of Ingenio and Agüimes, Gran Canaria hides another of those natural treasures that makes it unique, the Guayadeque ravine. It is a 15-kilometre ravine with a beautiful rugged landscape, winding course and slopes covered with native vegetation of great beauty.

The Roque Nublo

It sure sounds familiar to you; and it is that this natural monument has been used thousands of times to promote the island. It is also one of the most important icons of all the Canary Islands. Therefore, a walk along the path to Roque Nublo (1,813 m) could also be one of those interesting excursions during our stay on the island.

Maspalomas Dunes

The sand desert known as the dunes of Maspalomas is also one of the most surprising corners of the island. Four hundred hectares of extension that culminate in the Atlantic Ocean and that old lighthouse that was built in 1890. It should also be noted that the Maspalomas area is one of the most touristic areas of the island, in addition, on its website we can find a tourist guide quite interesting of Gran Canaria.

canary garden

The Canarian garden is one of those curious places that are worth a visit. It is the largest garden in all of Spain and is currently the great benchmark for the conservation of native flora. We will find more than 27 hectares full of a representation of the flora of the Canary Islands and Macaronesia.

Playa de las Canteras

We could not highlight a single beach, because the truth is that in Gran Canaria there are many and they are all beautiful. But we can tell you that Canteras beach is an urban beach full of life that will allow us to be in a beautiful setting just a few steps from the island's capital.
