We've been coming to this island for many years and would love to live there. 

Perfect climate and very gay friendly. 

Throughout the years we've met many people we now call friends.

WE LOVE THIS ISLAND.

Me and my husband come to Gran Canaria twice a year in March and in October or November.

This is a photo of me in the Europa Center, I think it was November 2010 on our honey moon, it's the best place ever !!

This is our tenth year coming here for our summer break.

We love the weather, the food, the people and it's so easy to get around the island.

This is us enjoying a fabulous meal out this week :)

For more than ten years we've been coming to Gran Canaria. At least once a year, and if we can twice. We stay at the Riu Don Miguel where it feels like we're at home.

But that feeling we have with all the people on Gran Canaria. Sometimes I say that I think that I was a Canarian in my former life.

In september we'll be at the island again, for three weeks. Lovely. It's just like coming home for us.

We visited gran canaria twenty years ago for the first time, but there were no hotels yet beyond the light house. Six years ago they were building Baobab and we made a reservation, it was not ready in time so they offered us Villa del Conde. Ever since we recommend Maspalomas to everyone who is looking for a great vacation.

Our family visited all the Lopesan hotels now and we visited Baobab twice which we normally never do.

Maspalomas is most certainly one of our favourite destinations.

Tip of the day

  • The Parafarmacia In Gran Canaria Is Not A Chemist!
    The Parafarmacia In Gran Canaria Is Not A Chemist!

    If there is one thing we hate it is visitors being tricked in Gran Canaria. In the past we've warned about overcharging at Gran Canaria chemists, and rip off electronics shops in resorts. 

    In this Tip Of The Day we return to the island's chemists or rather, to the island's fake chemists.

    A chemist in Gran Canaria is called a Farmacia and always has a green cross sign. Farmacias are the only place tobuy medicine in Spain, even basics like paracetamol.

    However, there is another kind of shop in Gran Canaria that looks and sounds like a chemist but doesn't sell medicine. This is the Parafarmacia and it also uses a green cross sign.

    A parafarmacia is a herbal medicine shop that is not allowed to sell any normal medicine such as paracetamol, ibuprofen or antibiotics. 

    Instead, parafarmacias sell herbal alternatives to medicine but don't have to prove that they work and they can charge whatever they want.

    We recently heard from a visitor to Gran Canaria who went into a parafarmacia and was charged 40 euros for a herbal alternative to Ibuprofen. It was only when they read the label that they realised what had happened. 

    To locate a genuine farmacia, see this website and search within your municipio (Puerto Rico is in Mogán, Playa del Inglés is in San Bartolomé de Tirajana). At weekends and on fiesta days many farmacias close but there is always one open, known as the farmacia de guardia, in each municipio.

    Search for the nearest one to you with this tool

    Lex Says: To keep costs down, see this article for the way to ask for generic medicine rather than expensive branded alternatives.
