Puerto Rico Holidays

The sunniest resort on Gran Canaria

When you think of Puerto Rico, you may think of the Caribbean, but the other Puerto Rico – on Gran Canaria’s southwest coast – is just as delightful. Puerto Rico holidays benefit from year-round balmy temperatures and hours of sunshine – in fact, it’s the sunniest spot on Gran Canaria. A lively Canarian resort that’s relaxed enough for all the family, Puerto Rico is nestled at the bottom of a volcanic valley. Its crescent-shaped bay has two breakwaters, making the sea calm enough for children to swim in. A gentle breeze usually blows across the golden sands to help keep sunbathers cool even when temperatures soar.

Perfect for romantic evening strolls, the beach is edged by a promenade with great bars and restaurants serving local seafood and Canarian classics. Down at the marina, there are yachts, fishing boats and sailboats available to hire for excursions, while at night the town’s clubs and bars open their doors for the party people. There’s no doubt about it, holidays to Puerto Rico make for the perfect sun-and-fun-filled family break.

Your Puerto Rico questions, answered

Yes, you can. Head down to the harbour, where you’ll be able to hire a boat, rods and bait – food and drink to fuel your excursion is sometimes included in the package, too.
When they’re tired of wandering around the beachfront shops and splashing in the sea, send your teens off to the amusement arcades in the main shopping centre.
The same as in summer – the climate on Gran Canaria is mild all year round and has winter daytime highs in the 20s. Evenings can be chilly, though, so bring a warm jumper.
