UPDATED 03/04/2017: Gran Canaria in April smells of sweat and cheese (and sunscreen, of course) thanks to the Guia cheese festival and the Mogán triathlon. You can also visit a couple of local fiestas close to the resorts.
Gran Canaria is an island that knows how to party. And it does so in its own way. Rather than the dance music parties of the Balearics or the bull fests of Spain, Gran Canaria goes local with its fiestas.
If you've decided that you need this year is a sunny Christmas, you'll be glad to know that there are still villas available for rent at Salobre Golf Resorts in south Gran Canaria thanks to Villa Canary Islands.
