Holidays in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico began life as a tiny fishing village on the south coast of Gran Canaria, and in recent years its popularity has soared. Few visitors can resist its white-sand beach and easy-going charm, with all the shops, bars and restaurants you could need. If you’re on holiday with the kids in Puerto Rico, some of Gran Canaria’s best water parks and family attractions are a short bus journey away.

Wander along the long curve of beach at the heart of Puerto Rico, lay back on a lounger and enjoy hours of Canaries sunshine. When you’re feeling up to it, white-knuckle water sports are the name of the game with high-speed jet skis or windsurfing to pick from. Kids and grown ups love the local water park, Aqualand, with its huge choice of swimming pools, slides and playgrounds. If you fancy getting out on the ocean, pay Puerto Rico’s marina a visit and set sail on the open sea for the day. When the sun sets, Puerto Rico’s balmy evenings were made for sitting outside a wine bar on the waterfront. 

Puerto Rico’s beach is a golden horseshoe of sand wrapped around a beautiful turquoise bay. The perfect place to settle for the day and relax, the beach is well-equipped and great for families with sun beds, umbrellas and showers on hand. At lunch time, all you need to do is stroll back to the seafront to find the cafes and bars or browse in the local shops. The water sports centres are a big attraction in Puerto Rico, so you can windsurf, race on jet skis or learn to dive.

Puerto Rico has a beautiful marina with a celebrated sailing centre and lots of colourful boats anchored in the blue waters. The marina provides lots of activities in Puerto Rico, with sailing trips being the most popular. Head off fishing at dawn, take a diving excursion or spend the day on a dolphin-spotting cruise. The resort’s commercial centre is the bustling hub of activity, with fantastic shopping malls that become nightlife hot spots. Here you can find a top choice of international cuisine as well some of the easy-going pubs for a chilled out night.

There are loads of things for kids to do in Puerto Rico, with some of the island’s best family attractions within easy reach. Just 20 minutes’ bus ride away is Maspalomas’ fantastic water park, Aqualand. The park has a huge choice of water slides and pools, including one of the biggest water slides in Europe. For the little ones, Aqualand also has a special kids’ pool and playground plus a family-friendly surf beach and lazy river. Another quick bus journey away are Gran Canaria’s famous sand dunes, which kids will love exploring on a camel safari.
