Playa del Ingles (Beach of the English) is Gran Canaria?s largest resort.
Young Fun holidays are very popular during the period of July and August making Playa Del Ingles very much the ideal place for 18-30 style holidays. During the rest of the year the resort proves very popular with all age groups and is home to a mix of British, Irish, German, Scandinavian, Dutch and other European tourists.
There are numerous Commercial Centers in and around Playa del Ingles, each hosting a fabulous selection of restaurants, bars and shops along with other necessities such as banks, foreign exchange, and supermarkets.
If you are looking for a hectic nightlife, head for the Kasbah and neighboring Metro Centre, known for their clubbing style and loud, crazy bars many of which are open until 6am. Needless to say this area is very quiet during the day.
If a cabaret drag show is your thing then pop into La Belle bar on the ground level. Its very popular with everyone including families and the show starts about 10pm. From midnight the gay bars and nightclubs open and remain so until around 6am. The Yumbo Centre is famous for its Carnival early each year which follows the Las Palmas Carnival.
The Gran Chaparral Centre is a good place to go for some quieter restaurants and bars.
The golden sandy beach of Playa del Ingles starts at the northern end of the resort and offers many water sports such as jet-skiing and paragliding.
There are so many things to do within the Playa del Ingles and Maspalomas area. Night trips to bars and clubs, horse-riding, jeep safari, go-carting, are all available by organised excursions.
There are also some excellent theme parks to visit such as Holiday World in Maspalomas where you can take in all the fun of the fair. There is a very popular bowling alley within the park. Then if you enjoy western cowboy and indian themes there is Sioux City, the original film setting for the movie A Fistful of Dollars starring Clint Eastwood. The film set has been maintained and a shoot out style show is put on for your entertainment.
The Mundo Aborigen is a museum highlighting the life of the original inhabitants of Gran Canaria both before and after the invasion of the Spanish in 1470s when many of them fled to the mountains to avoid being sold as slaves. A good place to visit following on from the museum is the Cave Houses of Guayadeque.
At Guayadeque there is a cave bar which serves the best milky coffee on the island and a selection of local tapas for a minimal cost. There is a chapel where you can stop to say a prayer, and one of the cave houses which is still inhabited is open for viewing. This is a real eye opener - the people still choose to live there but with all mod cons!
Aqualand, the water theme park at Maspalomas, is ideal for children and adults with a range of exciting water slide rides, and next door to Aqualand is the
