Location information for Puerto Rico

Introduction

Puerto Rico (not to be confused with the country Puerto Rico) is a purpose-built holiday resort for tourists on Gran Canaria. The boulevard runs directly along the beach. Puerto Rico is mainly a resort for families with children.

Population

As Puerto Rico was purpose-built for tourists, there are few permanent inhabitants: only about 3,000 people live here.

Location

Puerto Rico is located on the southwestern coast of Gran Canaria, at the end of highway GC-1 (Autovía Las Palmas-Puerto Rico). In the vicinity, you can visit charming places like the fishing village of Arguineguin and the picturesque Puerto de Mogan.

Economy

The resort is built for tourists and so there's only one source of income: tourism.

Airports

Gran Canaria Airport is situated 50 car kilometers northeast of Playa del Inglés. It's easily reachable by rental car, as the airport lies directly along the main road GC-1 which runs from Puerto Rico, via other popular seaside resorts on the south coast, to the capital Las Palmas. The exit to the airport is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Public transport is good, both in Puerto Rico and to other places on Gran Canaria. There are good connections with, for example, Playa del Inglés and Las Palmas, Gran Canaria's capital.

Traffic and Parking

In summer months it's busy in Puerto Rico, but it's a modern town geared towards tourists. You'll have no problem finding your way around or finding a free parking place. A rental car is an ideal means of transportation if you want to see more of Gran Canaria besides sun, sea and beach. Discover the small inland villages like Cruz de Tejeda. Bear in mind though that the inland mountain roads are narrow and winding.

Hotels

Besides the places of entertainment and shops, Puerto Rico consists exclusively of hotels, holiday resorts and apartment buildings. There's therefore an enormous choice of accommodations, but we still advise booking your hotel room well in advance, especially during summer months, as it's one of the most popular seaside resorts on Gran Canaria.
