If you need another good reason to drive around Gran Canaria, this is it: Los Almacigos in the idyllic Guayedra Valley is a stunning outdoor restaurant that serves modern Canarian food made from fruit and veggies grown on site.
Taste Mesón is quite simply one of the best food experiences in Gran Canaria. It serves top quality food in tasting portions in an informal setting with gorgeous views. Add the 360 wines sold by the glass (70 cavas and champagnes) and this is a Gran Canaria spot you have to try.
There's more to Arucas old town than the great big church. Walk up the narrow cobbled streets behind the cathedral for great old Canarian houses and local street life, then head down narrow Calle Gourié to the High Street (Calle León y Castillo).
