#1 Dont look for “Top 10 things to do…”

Looking for “10 things to do in Gran Canaria” in internet the only thing that you are going to get is a list of crowded places. Try to avoid instagram/blog spots. There are better places to visit, you only have to ask a local 😉 Book only activities respectful with the nature and the animals.

#3 Rent a car: be independent

Travelling in public transport in Gran Canaria is hard, expensive and you will miss all the good places. Renting a car is cheap and easy in Canary islands. Also, we always recommend get different places to sleep during your trip. You will save a lot of time changing your hotel/house exploring different parts of the island.
