Why should I go to Gran Canaria?

1. Stable climate throughout the year:  In the south of the island, rarely the temperatures drop below 25 degrees, even in winter. In summer it does not get too hot because of the sea breeze.

2. Adventure and Relaxation:  You can do a relaxing sea vacation alternating with days when you can visit the island by discovering interesting places. Wide choice of sports for athletics people.

3. Wellness:  Sun, sea water, dry climate and clean air will bring benefits to those who have health problems, especially allergies, respiratory and skin problems, psoriasis and rheumatism. Seeing is believing!

1. Where is the best area in Gran Canaria?

Puerto Rico, a country located in the southwest of Gran Canaria. In one of the most tourist places for winter holidays and not only. 

Things to do starting from Puerto Rico.

Whether you want to relax, sunbathing, swimming in the sea, whether you want to visit Gran Canaria, this is an excellent starting point for both of these things. 

You can:
  • Relax in the  Playa de Amadores  or  Anfi del Mar  (the most popular beaches in Gran Canaria).
  • Do several  water sports in Playa de Puerto Rico,
  • Take the ferry  to the famous Friday street Market in Puerto de Mogan,
  • Playing golf in nearby Tauro,
  • Walk through the Maspalomas dunes or Playa del Ingles (15 km from the residence)
  • A walk (Nordic Walking, Trekking) or  a bike ride among the mountain trails
  • Discover the typical villages of the North and the Inland.

      How far is Puerto Rico from the airport?  

      Around 50 kilometers from the only airport on the island "LPA". The freeway connects quickly north to the South. Traffic does not exist except in the capital: Las Palmas. In about 30 minutes, renting a car, you will arrive in the sunniest area of Gran Canaria.


      For those who are recommended Puerto Rico?

      Puerto Rico is close to the most beautiful beaches in the South of the island, a great starting point for traveling and relaxing holidays .

      If you are interested in wintering in Gran Canaria, sunbathing, get sunny days, visiting the island... this area is the best.
