Almost everything you buy in Gran Canaria is cheaper than in Europe thanks to our low sales tax and lack of luxury item taxes. Low prices and a great range of shops make the island a top shopping destination.
We often get asked if it's safe to buy expensive electronics, such as cameras and mobile phones, in Gran Canaria. Our answer is yes, provided that you go to reputable shops and follow the same precautions as you would at home.
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.
