Here's a round-up of the latest news and gossip from Gran Canaria...

A quick insider's summary of the main news stories affecting Gran Canaria this month. 

Gran Canaria hotels lost 4.6 million euros in 2016 due to a 700% surge in bogus food poisoning claims from British tourists.

Gran Canaria, and in particular the capital Las Palmas, is fast becoming a top spot to come and learn Spanish. If you are looking for a place to do a Spanish course, or live here and want to get your Spanish up to scratch, the World Language Centre should be top of your shortlist.
