Puerto Rico

Tonnes of fun

Puerto Rico is a fun-loving town with a modern feel to it on Gran Canaria’s southwest coast. Squeezed into the steep slopes of a volcanic valley are tall white hotels and large shopping complexes that major in duty-free shopping, international cuisine and 5-star entertainment.

A duo of beaches

Puerto Rico has 2 standout beaches to its name. To the north is horseshoe-shaped Amadores Beach, a Blue Flag-winning, 800-metre sweep of golden sand and a hotspot for watersports. Then in the town centre is Puerto Rico Beach. This crescent of family-friendly sand is backed by a promenade with bars, tropical gardens and 2 public swimming pools.

The town

Next to Puerto Rico Beach is a marina backed by Pasarella Shopping Centre, home to a number of upmarket shops and bars. And a 10-minute walk along Carretera General from here is the 2-floor Puerto Rico Shopping Centre, the heart of Puerto Rico’s nightlife and shopping scene, with more than 100 stores and dozens of lively pubs and clubs.

Family-friendly attractions

It’s easy to see why families keep coming back, year after year. Puerto Rico packs in a couple of mini-golf courses, tennis courts and amusement arcades. Lago Taurito waterpark, which has corkscrews, kamikazes and an activity pool for tots, is just 10 minutes away by car. And a little further afield is Sioux City – a theme park built on the site of a Wild West movie set.
