Puerto Rico

Holidays don’t come more fun-packed or sun-packed than this. Set in a narrow rocky valley, with apartments and hotels terraced up its steep sides, Puerto Rico is a family favourite that’s filled with things to do. And its position on Gran Canaria’s south-west coast means it basks in superb sunshine too. With calm waters and cashmere soft sands, you’d never guess the resort’s popular beach was man-made. Get here early to grab a prize spot, or head for the two public swimming pools surrounded by sub-tropical gardens, just behind the sands. Once you’re done lazing around, you’ll find everything else here is all go. Stroll to the marina and pick from the multitude of watersports available, including parasailing, pleasure cruises, jet skiing and game fishing. Alternatively, a whole bunch of other activities await behind the waterfront – the water park, minigolf or tennis anyone? And don’t forget the shopping. With its innumerable duty-free outlets, boutiques and gift stores, Puerto Rico is a shopaholic’s dream. When all this gets too much, you’ll find lots of places to simply sit, eat and enjoy a few sangrias. Hightail it down to the marina and take a seat at one of the many British-style restaurants and pavement cafés – or soak up the atmosphere of a tapas bar and chill to your heart’s content. By night, the resort fits firmly in the ‘something for everyone’ bracket. Quiet waterfront restaurants? Tick. Family-friendly bars? Tick. Late-night discos playing your favourite party anthems? Tick. Around the traffic-free centre, you’ll find a great selection of pubs, clubs and karaoke bars. There’s a pace to suit everyone in this fun-filled island slice.
