Welcome to Gran Canaria Info

Skygazers in the northern hemisphere are preparing for the high point of the annual Geminids meteor shower.

The shower is expected to be especially easy to see this year because it is nearly the new Moon, meaning there is less moonlight to obscure it.

The meteors can be seen streaking across the night sky from 2000 GMT onwards, reaching a peak after 2200.

Robert Massey, of the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, said about 100 meteors an hour would make it a "nice sight".

giant wheel similar to london eyeLas Palmas Council has been urged to make up its mind on the installation of a giant wheel similar to the London Eye or risk losing funds already earmarked for the project.

After announcing back in the summer that the wheel was to be installed in the centre of Las Palmas to increase the citys attractiveness for tourists, the council appears to have gone slightly cold on the plans.  The islands Cabildo has warned it that a grant of ¬50,000 set aside by the Department of Tourism could be withdrawn in the coming weeks if confirmation of the site of the attraction is not received soon.

According to sources in Las Palmas, the delay has been caused by the need for detailed technical studies guaranteeing that the loca­tion initially chosen, next to the Miller Building, will be able to support the weight of the 60 metre wheel.

Try Googling Gran Canaria and the website www.Gran-Canaria-Info.com ranks first in the results. With 6,000 unique visitors it's doing much better than the island's official tourism site on English Google versions.

Gran Canaria Info has been up and running since 1998 and, Internet-wise, that's a mighty long time!

It''s not for nothing that Google loves Gran Canaria Info. The site incorporates news, a guide to Gran Canaria with interactive maps, an extensive professional photo gallery, a lively Forum, an Events Calendar, a Directory which is like a deluxe Yellow Pages and free classified ads. A busy place to say the least.

In these days of arranging your own flights and accommodation instead of booking a package, it is tempting to search for websites that can offer apartments, bungalows etc in the destination of your choice. Beware however as there are unscrupulous people out there who are only too eager to relieve you of your cash only for you then to find that the website is bogus and you will get nothing in return for your money.
Horror stories have recently come to light on a popular Gran Canaria website telling of people turning up on the island at their chosen accommodation only to discover that no booking existed.  They booked their accommodation through a website named grancanariaholidays24h.com which, it transpires, was operated from Germany. The fraud originally came to light as a result of an eagle eyed, reputable accommodation agent discovering that the bogus site was offering rooms in properties for which he is the sole agent.  The fraudsters had even copied the details directly from his own website. The agent immediately contacted the web hosting company which took steps to close down the fraudsters websites.
Further discussion in the web Forum of www.gran-canaria-info.com revealed that the crooks were also operating a site named  parquesantiago24.com offering accommodation in Tenerife. Sadly, before the sites could be taken down, people had parted with money. This only came to light when a member of the Forum reported that he knew of people turning up at Villas Mirador del Mar and another apartment complex in Puerto Rico. Of course, no booking existed and they were faced with the choice of paying again or returning home on the next flight. This is not the first time this has happened and it is doubtful that it will be the last. Only a few months ago, unwitting Dutch holidaymakers suffered from a similar scam. So what can you do to avoid being caught by schemes such as this?
· Try and ascertain how long a business has been trading. These schemes are simple but open to 
detection therefore they are not around for long. 
· Google the name of the business and see if 
anything adverse comes up. 
· If prices look too good to be true then they 
probably are. 
· Be sceptical. Give the business a call and question
them. If you cannot make immediate direct 
contact then treat that as a warning sign.
· Try contacting the accommodation direct to check whether the agent is bona fide.
These kind of crooks give the island a bad name even though they are not even based on Gran 
Canaria.  BBC Radio 4s consumer programme, You and Yours is showing an interest in these scams so it is to be hoped that more people will become aware of the risks they face when booking accommodation independently.  If you have been caught in this way, it is important that you contact your local Trading Standards (if you are in the UK) and/or the police.  The sooner these scams are stopped the better for all.
