Puerto Rico vacation rentals

It's always fun in the sun in Puerto Rico

The phrase fun in the sun was surely made for Puerto Rico, a buzzy holiday resort on the southwest coast of Gran Canaria. This purpose-built resort created in the 1960s is a hotspot for Europe's snowbirds who flock in the winter to bask in the sun. The volcanic island's proximity to the African continent means a balmy climate all year round. Most Puerto Rico vacation rentals are a short walk from the wide sandy beach, which is book-ended by 2 harbors. Younger kids may love the Angry Birds theme park, which opened in 2013.

Sun, sea, and sandcastles in Puerto Rico

The whitewashed resort of Puerto Rico is set around a beautiful crescent of buttery soft sand and a glittering turquoise bay. The resort is sheltered from the brisk trade winds Gran Canaria is famous for, and a shallow surf and lifeguard protection means it's safe for all the family. Puerto Rico vacation rentals are often a leisurely stroll from the beach. During the busy summer months, the beach can get crowded, but there are plenty of alternative activities nearby. Try jet-skiing or parasailing from the beach, or book a dolphin-watching cruise from the marina.

Meet the Angry Birds of Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is one of Gran Canaria's most popular family resorts, thanks to its great beaches and safe, shallow waters. But sometimes it's nice to explore away from the beach. Opened in Puerto RIco in 2013, the Angry Birds Activity Park is a vast adventure playground moments from many Puerto Rico vacation rentals. The park is aimed at younger Angry Birds fans and themed around the popular game. Meet your favorite characters, play adventure croquet, or conquer the colorful climbing wall. The park is open all-year round, with late night opening at weekends.

Discover winter warmers in Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is one of the sunniest resorts on the island with over 300 days of sunshine a year. Phew! It's protected from Gran Canaria's legendary trade winds, and the average temperature is 70°F. August is the hottest month, but it's also the busiest. December and January are equally popular times to visit, when the snowbirds descend to escape the dreary northerly winters. There's often chance of rain in November and December, but showers are brief, and you'll soon be back on the sun lounger.

Embrace the piney fresh forests of Puerto Rico

Tucked away in the southwestern flank of the island, Puerto Rico is a short drive from the Pilancones Natural Park - 8,000 hectares of pine forest. It has a greater concentration of pine trees than anywhere on the island. Take a hike around the lower regions and see indigenous cacti on its slopes, or spot the island's rare birds, including the Gran Canaria blue chaffinch and wild canaries. Book a guided tour from the resort or explore on your own via a rented 4-wheel drive.
