Puerto Rico is one of Gran Canaria’s most popular family resorts and is situated at the mouth of a valley on the south coast of the island. Once a small fishing port, today it is a beautiful and pleasant holiday area with restaurants, an attractive promenade, plenty of sun and an amazing natural landscape.

Take a leisurely stroll along the promenade or enjoy the choice of bars, restaurants and cafés there. Stop off for a cool drink, a bite to eat and browse around the shops that are dotted around this area. 

The cosy and beautiful beach sits just in front of the main walkway and is a haven for sun worshippers because of its soft golden sand and pristine calm waters. Renowned to be one of the sunniest spots on the island, Playa de Puerto Rico is the place to perfect your tan! The choice of water sports on offer here is amazing. Maybe you like the thrill of jet-skiing? Perhaps you have always wanted to try windsurfing? 

Very close to this lovely beach is the Marina Suites Hotel, situated in a prime position with stunning vistas overlooking the sea. Enjoy 4-star luxury accommodation in a place that comes with a first-class recommendation from Spain-Grancanaria.

Views of the picturesque marina can be enjoyed from this fantastic hotel with its nautically-inspired design. Elegant boats are moored on the turquoise water and there is a well-known sailing centre and club based here. Over the years members have won an impressive five Olympic gold medals and deep-sea fishing thrives, evidenced in the 50+ world records obtained by fishermen setting out from here. Leisure excursions such as pleasure boat trips along the coast, dolphin watching cruises or a trip in a glass-bottomed boat to discover the underwater world, are also popular enticements for visitors. 

A short walk from the marina is the water theme park Atlantida with its fun slides and thrilling rides. A major attraction, this is especially popular with families and is located next to the Puerto Rico Shopping Centre, which is home to bars, shops, fast food outlets and a disco. 

In addition, if golf is your thing, you will be pleased to know there are many courses in the south of the island. The nearest is a five minute drive away in Mogán. 

All in all, Puerto Rico is a popular choice among holidaymakers who love the sunshine, golden beach, plush accommodation, stunning scenery and wealth of attractions.
