Welcome back to Villa Gran Canaria! Today at our blog, we want to show you the little Gran Canaria Guide that we have created in order to show you the most important things of the island before you start your trip.
As you probably know already, Gran Canaria is one out of the 7 islands that make up the Canarian archipelago. It is located in the Atlantic Ocean and it belongs to the country of Spain. In the 60s, the tourism started to grow and it was then when the destination began to overcrowd by constructing buildings at the shores of the island without measure.
That is one of the main reasons why today we are providing you all the information of our Gran Canaria guide. We want to help you escaping from the crowded places and discover the most authentic side of Gran Canaria. Do you dare to live your holidays as an authentic Canarian?
The question is… Where do the Canarian people go? Where do we eat? Where do we plan our getaways? How can you move around the island? All of these questions and more will be answered down below. In short, we want to guide you in the best possible way as you visit the island and discover all the magic hidden at every step you take.
