Discover Puerto Rico

Nestled in the slopes of a volcanic valley and surrounded by a horseshoe bay lies the beautiful town of Puerto Rico. An intoxicating combination of fun and lively ambience and a modern feel, Puerto Rico is a little gem on Gran Canaria’s southwest coast.

Though quieter than its lively neighbour Playa del Ingles, there is still a myriad of things to do in this beautiful part of the Canary Islands. Whether you’re looking to laze on silky white sands with sangria or embark on a fun-filled family holiday to remember, you’ll find something to keep you captivated on your Puerto Rico holidays.

Hit the Beach

One of the main draws of Puerto Rico is undoubtedly, its standout beaches. To the north, you’ll find the horseshoe-shaped Amadores Beach – an 800-metre sweep of golden sand and a veritable hub of action for water sports enthusiasts. This is the ideal spot for adventurous types – from diving to sailing and surfing to aqua bikes. Swim around sunken shipwrecks or shoot around parasailing – the choice is yours.

In the town centre is Puerto Rico Beach. This crescent of sand is a particularly favourite for families on their holidays in Puerto Rico, providing a safe place for children to bathe and play. Backed by a lively promenade of bars, tropical gardens and swimming pools, this is the ideal spot for entertainment – whether you’re seeking beachside relaxation or something a little more animated.

Fun by the Sea

A distinctly family-friendly holiday hotspot, Puerto Rico offers a variety of things to do for the young and young at heart. Thrill-seeking little ones will enjoy a visit to the nearby Aqualand Waterpark. Top up your tans on the terrace while the older kids whizz through the thrilling Tornado and younger ones make their way through the Lazy Rapids – ice-cream parlours and bars are a great addition to this already fantastic park, ensuring a great day out for the entire family on your holidays to Puerto Rico. If you’d rather be on the water than in it, hop aboard the Supercat catamaran for a cruise around the waters of southern Gran Canaria and a chance to spot majestic bottlenose dolphins.

Of course, a highlight of your Puerto Rico holidays is sure to be sampling some of the great tastes of the area. Head down to the marina, known as Puerto Escala, for a great line-up of restaurants, many of them incorporating a seaside theme. Savour delicious sea bream or tuck into tuna as you watch the fishing boats come in. Head further down the marina for flavoursome authentic fare – from delicious papas arrugadas to traditional rustic ropa vieja, some of the best in Spain.

Life doesn’t stop in Puerto Rico when the sun goes down. The main, livelier and busier nightlife can be found in the commercial centre towards the bottom of the resort and offers everything from bustling nightclubs to karaoke bars, just like in the party cities of Tenerife. For family-friendly entertainment, look no further than the Europa Centre – an ideal spot to get away from the exuberant partygoers. A quiet place to linger over drinks and enjoy the gentle ambience is in the main harbour – sit, relax and enjoy the fresh sea air on your Puerto Rico holidays.
