A recent viral Facebook post claims that El Veril, the proposed location for Gran Canaria's Siam Park waterpark is a site of special scientific interest that must be protected. Here are the facts behind the claim.
Gran Canaria, and in particular the capital Las Palmas, is fast becoming a top spot to come and learn Spanish. If you are looking for a place to do a Spanish course, or live here and want to get your Spanish up to scratch, the World Language Centre should be top of your shortlist.
If you've spent any time in south Gran Canaria's shopping centres, you'll know that they aren't really about the shopping. However, Gran Canaria does have several excellent centres and shopping areas for fashion-conscious visitors.
