Puerto Rico lies on Gran Canaria's south west coast, approximately 50km from Las Palmas Airport; the main entrance point of the island. Gran Canaria offers something for everyone so enjoy it to its full potential with a hire car.
Relax in Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is a fun-loving town and renowned for being the sunniest spot on Gran Canaria. This is ideal for those looking to top up their tan. Relax on one of the excellent beaches and soak up the sun. Wide sweeping expanses of golden sand mean you’ll never have to fight for a spot on which to stretch out.
What else is on?
If you fancy a break from the beach head off to the Aqua Park in Puerto Rico for a day of family fun. There are plenty of slides and pools to keep visitors of all ages entertained. Alternatively, there are plenty of shops and bars to entertain you.
Why not embark on a dolphin watching boat trip? These depart daily from the harbour and offer a fascinating insight into the marine life of the Gran Canaria coastline. Look for the tours that drop anchor in one of the many hidden bays and explore the underwater world for yourself with a snorkel.
Explore Gran Canaria in your hire car
Travel inland to Fataga for a camel trek. It’s a different and interesting way to explore Fataga Valley. Home to charming rural houses, palm groves and a quaint church and perched precariously on a rock threatening to precipitate into the gorge, this picturesque mountain village is considered the most beautiful village on the island. There are also a handful of great local restaurants to be found here. Enjoy authentic local cuisine, relax with a glass of the local wine and enjoy the tranquil surroundings.
