Maspalomas, Gran Canaria

— 6 nights

Home to Gran Canary's Most Beautiful Beach

Fondly referred to as “El Sur” by the locals, Maspalomas serves as a hub of entertainment and beach activity on Gran Canary Island.
Venture out of the city with trips to San Bartolome de Tirajana (Bodega Las Tirajanas & Mirador de La Orilla), Playa del Burrero (in Ingenio) and Mirador del Balcon (in La Aldea de San Nicolas de Tolentino). There's still lots to do: take an exotic tour of Buggy Pirates Gran Canaria, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Palmitos Park, have fun at Motos Tivoli Gran Canaria, and indulge in some personalized pampering at Gran Massage - Massage Gran Canaria Maspalomas Playa del Ingles.

Modern, cosmopolitan, and very trendy, the Canary Islands are a major center for European tourism. With a total population of about two million, these seven diverse islands are as distinct from each other as they are from the mainland of Spain. The first settlers arrived from North Africa, building an economic system loosely based around farming. Invaded by Europeans in the 14th century, the islands gradually developed a more European feel, but with a mixed population of ethnicities rarely found anywhere else in the world. While agriculture is still alive and well here, the tropical beaches and vibrant nightlife tend to top any vacation itinerary.
