Get a sense of the local culture at Casa de Colon and La Fortaleza Centro de Interpretation. Head to Yumbo Centrum and Compania de la Galletafor plenty of shopping. Venture out of the city with trips to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Las Canteras Beach, Vegueta, & more). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Playa de Maspalomas, get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, get interesting insight from Tours, and enjoy the sea views from El Faro de Maspalomas.
