The Gran Canaria region
Gran Canaria is probably the most interesting of the Canary Islands.The scenery and coastline are varied and spectacular with mountains, lush forests, and picturesque old villages. The language and culture are Spanish, though from around 3000 BC the island was inhabited by Cro-Magnon type people, the Guanchos. Much later Christopher Columbus stayed for periods in Las Palmas and the renowned author Galdos and painter Nestor were born there. Gran Canaria also has one of the world's best climates for year-round holidays, neither too hot nor too cold (average max 24C, min 19C all year).
.A car is not necessary for a holiday in the Marysol apartments in Playa del Ingles.The extensive local attractions can be reached on foot, cycle, taxi or the efficient bus services. For visits, less than hour away by bus are Las Palmas, the capital and an attractive small Spanish city, charming little ports and picturesque villages in the green hills and mountains behind the resort. Exploring Gran Canaria more widely, and especially in the scenic north, with a hired car is also rewarding. The Marysol apartments have a private car park (no charge).
