Puerto Rico is one of Gran Canaria’s popular family resorts and well known for being one of the sunniest places on the island.
Located at the mouth of a large valley, Puerto Rico once small fishing port, now is a busy holiday resort, with a smart marina, hotels and apartments, built on terraces rising up along the coastline.
Puerto Rico can be very nice and quiet in low season. The place itself has a nice friendly feel and is ideal for families with children, as there are lots of activities, which include the whole family.
The attractive marina has a sailing centre. Deep-sea fishing is also renowned. There are plenty of amenities around the town.(Bars, restaurants, shops). There is also a local bus system (Global Bus) that gets you to other destinations on the island.
The beach at Puerto Rico is delightful; with sand which has been brought from the Sahara.
There are all sorts of water sports activities offered from the beach, including jet-skiing, sailing, diving, big game fishing and windsurfing. Plus you can take a day trip on several pleasure boats discovering the rest of the coast. Go dolphin watching or enjoy a trip in a glass bottom boat along the coast.
