Puerto Rico is the closest Gran Canaria gets to the Spanish Costas. There's British breakfast by the beach, karaoke bars in the shopping centres and lots of foreign residents who never learn the local lingo.
However, there's more to Puerto Rico than the stereotypes suggest: great places to eat, quality bars and of course two of the island's warmest and sunniest beaches.
The resort fills a valley with a sand beach and two marinas on the coast. Its bungalows and apartments are mostly quiet as the nightlife is focused in the giant Puerto Rico shopping centre.
Puerto Rico attracts British tourists during the summer and Scandinavians during winter. They all come for the almost-constant sunshine and lively bars and restaurants.
Puerto Rico resort is 70 kilometres from the airport but transport links are good and the motorway journey takes less than an hour. Your transport options if you dont have a transfer are local bus, taxi or private tranfer service.
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.
