A recent viral Facebook post claims that El Veril, the proposed location for Gran Canaria's Siam Park waterpark is a site of special scientific interest that must be protected. Here are the facts behind the claim.
You've probably read that a passenger ferry crashed into the harbour wall in Las Palmas this week and that the accident caused an oil spill and closed beaches. Relax, the spill was minor and never came anywhere near ANY of Gran Canaria's beaches.
The 5-Star Radisson Blu Resort & Spa, Gran Canaria, Mogan opened its doors yesterday in the Puerto de Mogán sunshine. As Gran Canaria's biggest website, we attended the official opening and toured the room and facilities. We were impressed.
The Catholic church rather than the local tourist authorities still decides when to open church doors in Gran Canaria. This means that some of the island's prettiest churches, such as the Puerto de las Nieves hermitage, are often closed during the day.
