The Spanish Puerto Rico
. Everything about the resort
The Spanish Puerto Rico is located on the Gran Canaria Island and it has turned over the years into a family holiday resort. It is a very nice holiday destination for young families with small children because the facilities are perfect for them. The two beaches that wait for you all year long have been built with the purpose of delighting you with the finest sands; you can let your children play in the water here, because it is very calm, as the beaches are very well-protected by the bay. One of the two beaches has the sand imported right from the Sahara Desert, while the other one, Playa de Amadores brings its sand from the Caribbean. The two marinas offer a wide range of entertaining activities: cruises and trips are available, as well as ferries that can take you to Anguineguin or to Puerto de Mogan; a day in Puerto de Mogan, a coquettish fishing town, is recommended, as the place still has the traditional Spanish spirit. You can lie on the beach, eat in one of the restaurants or go on the Yellow Submarine in order to discover the wreck under the water. The Submarine is a very interesting experience, especially for the little ones.
Back to Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico is wonderful for practicing water sports such as sailing, windsurfing or scuba diving. When you get bored with these, you can go shopping in one of the shopping centers: Centro Civico, Europa, and Agua la Perra. The nightlife is very active for a family resort; the range of restaurants is very diverse, starting with the well known McDonalds where children love to eat and finishing with the romantic French restaurants where you can dine with your husband or wife after the kids go to sleep. These romantic restaurants are situated very close to the bay, offering wonderful views of the yacht marina. There is something for you and your children to do all day long: you can take them to the swimming pool especially designed for children or to the water park. They will definitely have a wonderful time there. If you want a day trip, you can take the bus to Puerto de Mogan or to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, places very close to Puerto Rico where you can have a lot of fun. Enjoy your stay!
