If you like the sun - go south. If you like the wind - go east. If you like lee (shelter) - go east. If you don't care but like shopping - go north. Best tip is - have a hire car waiting for you at the airport. Be sure to have all the car insurance ready when arriving. All the car hire companies - no exception - will try to force you to pay extra insurance. Do not fall for it! But the advantage is, that the hired car will take you directly to your destination! And after spending an hour in the morning sun, you are ready to see the interesting places far from the touristic areas, where everybody is. The mountain roads are rather safe even if there are some narrow hair pin curves. Just take it easy and you will be fine. There are plenty of small villages and rural areas in the central mountain area. All have their small café and specialty.

Ahr45's City Tips

  • Find and use The Pool Bar in Puerto Mogan. Heated pool in the winter season!
  • When staying 2-3-4 weeks, self catering is to prefer. A hired car makes you able to buy your stuff where the locals do. Very often at less than half price!

    Venice of Gran Canaria. The marina and the whole town is cosy and the shops seams to have better quality. Ask if the seafood is made from fresh or frozen!
