Gran Tour


A trip which allows us to see why Gran Canaria is called a continent in miniature. It starts early in the morning (but not at four a.m. – thus you will have time to eat breakfast), and the means of transport is the bus. Sightseeing is accompanied by a guide who will present a lot of interesting facts about the island, its inhabitants, climate and historical monuments. I do not know whether the Grand Tours organized by various travel agencies have the same route, so I’ll describe it in a nutshell the one in which I took part.

Palmitos Park


Park is a unique attraction which, unfortunately, I was not lucky enough to see. I hope that once I get back to Gran Canaria and I will compensate myself for this lack and see it on my own.

Palmitos Park is a zoo and a botanical garden, which differs, however, by far from our native zoos. In Palmitos Park you will see colorful, exotic species of birds: parrots, hummingbirds, toucans, flamingos and equally beautiful and colorful species of fish that inhabit the underwater part of our world.

They were formed by the ocean water brought by wind and sand (no, it does not come from the Sahara Desert). They are a part of a nature reserve which also includes the palm grove Palmeral and the pool la Charca. I saw only the sand dunes. They constitute the sea of golden sand and wandering through it is not easy at all. Yes, yes, despite the fact that the dunes are a part of a reserve you can walk through them, run and ride a camel, I also recommend also rollover. But you must know that climbing and descending these sandy embankments is tiring for our legs, especially since they are drowning in the scalding desert sand.
