Gran Canaria & the Canary Islands have grown bananas for export for almost 100 years and everyone who tries them agrees that they are the sweetest and tastiest in the world. Here's why they are so good, and how to pick a perfect one.
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.
Camping in the Gran Canaria highlands is a great way of immersing yourself in nature but you do have to fill in a few forms before you pitch your tent. Legal camping by the sea is virtually impossible.
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.
