The cities of Gran Canaria
There are a lot of differences in the cities of Gran Canaria, but those in the tourist area on the south coast only consist of hotels and shopping centers, all of which are there simply to entertain and to help the visitors spend their money.
But if you want to experience the real Gran Canaria then you need to move away from the tourist areas and find the local towns which are further up on the island there you can listen to local music and watch folk dancing and enjoy the taste of real Canarian cuisine it is such a wonderful experience to sit on the town square in the evening with a blanket around you and feel the wind sweeping around your feet.
If you choose to go for a walk local non tourist areas then you will experience an entirely different Gran Canaria, both with the friendliness of the people on the streets and in the restaurants there you will find the peace and the tranquility of the real Gran Canaria.
If you are traveling alone and would like to be part of one of these evenings we here at Canariainfo can organize this for you and help you enjoy an experience you will never forget.
