Puerto Rico


A horse-shoe bay beach is popular with families due to the gentle slope into the sea and 2 ports (Puerto Base and Puerto Escala) host both private boats and commercial boats including ferry services to nearby Anfi Del Mar and Mogan harbors.  Family entertainment is also found in the form of numerous Mini golf and the Angry Birds activity park.

Shopping, restaurants, café, bars, nightlife are in abundance with commercial Centre’s located both at the bottom of the valley (Ask for McDonalds and you´ve arrived) and “on the top of the valley” at the Europa Centre.  Newer and chicer shopping centres have also been recently built (or under construction) closer to the motorway entrance the resort – “The Market” and “Mogan Mall”.

Translated literally as “Port of the Rich”, Puerto Rico enjoys one of the best climates of Gran Canaria, due to its location on the South-West of the Island and thus is a popular all year-round destination.

Hotel and apartments perch along the facing steep slopes of the two sides of the valley and famous steps (tell us if you have counted them) reach from the bottom of the resort to the hotels and area at the top.  Gran Canarias taxi services are voted as one of the main reasons why tourists visit Gran Canaria repeatedly and perhaps their services are most used in the resort of Puerto Rico!

A popular pastime is the walk from Puerto Escala along the seafront to the neighbouring Amadores beach.
