Golf, colourful carnivals, lively nightlife
Maspalomas is the oldest tourist resort in south Gran Canaria. It’s famous for its 68m tall lighthouse and its sand dunes which are a protected wildlife sanctuary and are home to some remarkable plants and wildlife. Maspalomas is more upmarket and low key than its neighbour Playa del Ingles . With breathtaking sand dunes and a relaxing atmosphere this resort is perfect for families and couples
Away from the beach you’ll find plenty of attractions from two water parks, shopping centres and boutiques to the island largest 18 hole golf course. Eating out in Maspalomas is relaxed with open air restaurants and bars playing live music. Puerto Rico was originally a fishing village that has now been developed into a lively modern tourist resort. Its harbour is lined with luxury yachts, pleasure boats and fishing vessels. The resort is built along and up the high side of a valley and is therefore not suitable for people with walking difficulties, however there is a selection of accommodation and entertainment on the lower flatter area.
The beach is very popular due to the fantastic water sports on offer here. You can always take advantage of a public area which is home to two swimming pools and is set in picturesque tropical gardens with an abundance of beautiful flowers and plants. Eating out in Puerto Rico offers you a diverse range of restaurants that serves traditional and international menus to suit every taste.

Set in a desert canyon near Maspalomas, Palmitos Park is home to everything from fish and birds to Orang-utans and Komodo Dragons. Wander jungle paths through palms and cacti for a fun and educational day out for the whole family.
