The second most populated Canary Island, Gran Canaria is full of natural beauty. Known as the 'miniature continent' due to its variety of climates and terrain, this beautiful island offers opportunities to unwind or experience something new and exciting.
The Carnival des Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is one of many highlights on the island – and it one of the most famous Carnivals in Spain. Around 200,000 people come to experience the fun that fills a six-kilometre route through the city in February every year. Expect beautiful people, spectacular costumes and a night you're likely to remember for the rest of your life.
With many hotels and villages built into the surrounding cliffs, Playa Taurito is one of the most attractive places to stay on the island. More of a quiet-night-in with a glass of wine sort of place than Playa del Ingles, it boasts some excellent attractions, including premier diving spots and an excellent beach.
Shopping and watersports are Puerto Rico's specialities. With three large commercial shopping centres and an expansive beach teeming with water-based activities, this is a family-friendly resort with a variety of experiences in the area.
