Gran Canaria Shopping: Where To Shop In Puerto Rico

Where to shop in and around Puerto Rico resort in Gran Canaria Where to shop in and around Puerto Rico resort in Gran Canaria

For a big resort with two large shopping centres, Puerto Rico is actually rather lacking in quality shopping. However, this about to change with two big new retail areas due to open in 2019 right in the middle of the resort.

Until the new centres, located on either side of the road where the old water park used to be, open, you've limited to the existing Puerto Rico CC in the bottom of the resort and the Europa Centre high up on West Hill. While both of these centres have a thriving restaurant and bar scene, their shops are a little behind the times. 

If you need something like a new t-shirt or sundress, you'll be able to find it in the Puerto Rico CC, but there isn't much choice if you're planning to spend a full day shopping.

In fact, if you want to shop properly, you have to leave the resort and head to one of the places on our top Gran Canaria shopping spots list. While you're at it, read our ultimate guide to Gran Canaria clothes shopping too. 

Where to shop close to Puerto Rico

Head west to Puerto de Mogán on a Friday for the big market or a Monday for the craft market and check out the shops by the beach, or head to upmarket Meloneras or the El Tablero shopping centre close to Playa del Inglés.

Or, make a day of it and head to Las Palmas where you'll find some of the best shops in Gran Canaria

If Las Palmas seems a little far, get a local bus to the Las Terrazas shopping centre by the motorway in Telde for some excellent outlet deals.

    Gran Canaria Tip: What Are The Best Car Hire Companies?

    This is one of the most common questions we get in our Facebook Group (with over 30,000 members) and fortunately, it is an easy one to answer. The Gran Canaria Info admin team and the fans in our Facebook group agree...

    The best car hire companies in Gran Canaria are local ones with desk at the airport and honest pricing policies that don't have any hidden insurance or fuel deposit costs. They just rent you a good car at a good price with no fuss at all. 

    We recommend Mr Car Hire Gran Canaria (Nick); an idependent car rental professional who works with all the main local rental companies in Gran Canaria. This means that he can always find you a good deal.

    Mr Car Hire also offers fully comprehensive insurance on all car rental, three-day bookings, and delively of your car right to your door anywhere in Gran Canaria. 

    We advise all Gran Canaria visitors to avoid booking the cheapest possible car on generic car rental websites or via their flight company because you often end up paying large deposits, extra fuel and insurance costs and all kinds of other costs once you arrive to pick up your car at the airport.
