Explore Puerto Rico

Perfectly located on the south coast of Gran Canaria, in the mouth of a large valley, lies the beautiful town of Puerto Rico. Once a quaint fishing port, Puerto Rico now offers a huge variety of restaurants, bars, beaches and a beautiful promenade for you to enjoy. Puerto Rico is certainly one of Gran Canaria's most popular resorts & it's easy to see why. Due to its bay location, Puerto Rico offers warmer weather and less wind than other areas of the island, so warm weather is guaranteed all year round.

Now, if that's not a reason to explore Puerto Rico, then I don't know what is...
