The very name Puerto Rico Gran Canaria conjures up images of endless sunshine, lively entertainment and beautiful sandy beaches on an exotic island location. That’s Puerto Rico Gran Canaria!
This purpose-built holiday resort is located in the southwest of Gran Canaria where a rocky ravine runs down to the sea. At the heart of the town is Puerto Rico’s sandy beach, flanked by two small harbours where pleasure cruises and dolphin watching trips can be taken around the coast of this volcanic island. Game fishing is another popular pastime for those looking to add a little more excitement to their holidays in Puerto Rico.

Temperatures in this holiday paradise range from 20-25°C (68-77°F) on average with hardly a rain shower.
