A recent viral Facebook post claims that El Veril, the proposed location for Gran Canaria's Siam Park waterpark is a site of special scientific interest that must be protected. Here are the facts behind the claim.
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.
A well hidden beach that you have to know to be able to find it. Easiest way to get there is to drive to the harbour of La Aldea. Park somewhere and look for a sign that shows you the way to the beach. if you look well at the map underneath in satellite view you can view the paths.
You've probably read that a passenger ferry crashed into the harbour wall in Las Palmas this week and that the accident caused an oil spill and closed beaches. Relax, the spill was minor and never came anywhere near ANY of Gran Canaria's beaches.
Taste Mesón is a rare restaurant where you get to taste top quality food in an informal setting with gorgeous views. Add to that the 270 wines sold by the glass and this is a Gran Canaria spot you have to try.
Gran Canaria's resorts are choc-a-bloc this winter and bargain hotel and accommodation is been hard to find. The capital city Las Palmas, however, offers an alternative with some excellent hotels at great prices.
