Gran Canaria Info has been a labour of love for over 20 years and we want to make it even better than ever with our new concept; the Gran Canaria Info Club.
The GCI Club is for people who love Gran Canaria and really want to explore the whole island. It's where we share the hidden spots and local places that you can't really reveal to everyone without spoiling them. It includes a map of all the best local places in Gran Canaria, a place for members to chat, regular meetups, and a small but growing set of discounts and offers just for members.
The GCI Club is the first time we have ever charged for anything on Gran Canaria Info and we know that it has to be excellent if it is going to work.
So, please read on for the top five reasons we think the GCI Club is a great idea for you...
You help make Gran Canaria Info better
Lex and I have been working on Gran Canaria Info since 1998 when Lex first started the website. Since then we've taken thousands of photos, written hundreds of articles and made countless social media posts and comments. We run one of the busiest Facebook groups about Gran Canaria and the biggest Facebook page about the island.
Over the years, the experience earned us some great photographer and social media jobs and we are very grateful for them.
However, we've never made any money directly from the site or the Facebook group. Ok, that's not completely true: We cover our server costs with ads and started to sell excursions at the start of 2020.
But we don't want to ruin Gran Canaria Info with adverts and sales. We want to keep doing exactly what we do; providing quality, independent information about Gran Canaria, showing you the best of your favourite island, and doing our best to support quality local businesses and restaurants.
The Gran Canaria Info Club lets us do exactly that. You get the perks but you also support the whole idea behind Gran Canaria Info.
You get detailed, fresh local info
As a member you get exclusive content written by Lex, Alex and guest local experts, and access to our huge map of local spots with all the best hidden bits of Gran Canaria. Natural pools, instagram photo locations, snorkelling spots, and local bars and restaurants. It's like a extra layer of Gran Canaria Info that lets you get the most out of your time on the island. When we find something new or exciting, you will be the first to know about it.
Plus you'll get news posts from Alex covering the most important things that happen in Gran Canaria.
We'll keep updating the content so that there is always something new for you to explore or try the next time you come to Gran Canaria.
You can chat and network with other members
We want the GCI Club to become a place where true Gran Canaria fans can get together and talk about the island and also get to know each other, organise meetups and events, and help each other to enjoy Gran Canaria.
We'll start by organising regular meetups in Gran Canaria's resorts for members and their friends and we hope this side of the club develops a life of its own.
Direct help and information from Lex, Alex and other local experts
If you have a question about Gran Canaria and want an answer, ask the other members or contact us directly and we'll reply straight away.
If you need help in Gran Canaria, just let us know. Anything we can do, we will: We may not be able to get you out of jail in Gran Canaria, but we can come and visit you (joke).
Discounts, offers and other perks
Don't join the Gran Canaria Info Club just for the discounts, but please do take advantage of them. We'll be arranging exclusive offers and perks for members at many of our favourite places in Gran Canaria just for members.
