Gran Canaria is an absolute treasure. There's plenty to do for both adults and children, such as waterparks, amusement parks, cabaret shows, etc, so you won't be disappointed. Gran Canaria has some great holiday spots, the most popular being: PLAYA DEL INGLES, MASPALOMAS AND PUERTO RICO.

Quick Tips:

The sun in Gran Canaria can get extremely hot during the summer months, so it is wise to use a high sun factor during the day. If travelling to waterparks etc, make sure you arrive early as queues can get very long, especially during the summer months.

Best Way To Get Around:

Public transport is excellent, and taxis are very cheap indeed, usually arriving every few minutes.
