Gran Canaria City Info Gran Canaria Hotels

Gran Canaria is an island belonging to the Canary Islands, an archipelago located southeast of Tenerife and west of Fuerteventura. You will find that Gran Canaria Spain is somewhat like a miniature continent with its variety in terms of climate and the landscapes it offers, ranging from the bustle of Las Palmas to the serenity of the lush woodlands. The Gran Canaria Map indicates that Gran Canaria is almost circular, with a diameter of about 32 miles (50km) having characteristics of deep ravines which jot out from the centre down to the coast. The two long beaches of Las Caletas and Alcaravaneras are quite an attraction during your Gran Canaria Holidays. Holidays Gran Canaria will enchant you with its interiors which have highlands dotted with small villages and sporting white houses with red roofs. The banana plantations and orchards complete with tropical fruits and Gran Canaria Villas are sights worth having a look at for the tourists. You will find a major influx of tourists in the southern coastline in the more popular beaches such as Playa del Inglés or Maspalomas where you will find sights of empty dunes stretching for miles.

In Gran Canaria you will also like the delightful town of Arucas. The town lies on a dormant volcano and you will be amazed to see tourists flocking to get a glimpse of the town. A major attraction is the majestic Church of San Juan Bautista which has been carved in stone. Here tourists also make it a point to visit the Fabrica y Museo del Ron to witness how sugar cane is turned into rum. In Gran Canaria Spain one must not loose an opportunity to see the Museo Canario, the main museum in Las Palmas which boasts the world’s largest collection of Cro-Magnon skulls and a few mummies. Holidays Gran Canaria also gives you an opportunity to get a colourful and entertaining look at nature which is presented at Palmitos Park where thousands of birds, fish, trees, plants and particularly orchids reside. The astonishing range of orchids is the largets in the Canary Islands. If you are fond of the wildlife you will also find a crocodile park on the Gran Canaria Map. The Parque de los Crocodilo is home to more than 300 crocodiles and alligators from all over the world. In the park there is a zoo as well where you can find monkeys, chimpanzees, tigers, jaguars, and camels. In the park’s centre you can indulge in some mouthwatering snacks in a restaurant while at the same time see parrots perform various tricks. The Gran Canaria nightlife also has its charms where you can watch local folk groups performing while you quaff the local wines.
