Where to Stay ?
Because of its popularity Las Palmas benefits from a wide range of accommodation that fits all budgets. When visiting the city for a couple of days during a cruise, you will probably try to find hotels near the cruise and ferry port terminal, to save time and money on transportation.
What’s great is that the bus system in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is excellent, with numerous lines covering all areas of the city during the day and even at night. You can then choose your area based on your interests. Vegueta, the old district situated near Santa Catalina and the port, is the perfect area for party lovers, with its restaurants, bars, and clubs, especially on Thursday evenings with the local tapas nights.
Another historic district you could consider staying in is Triana, one of the commercial hubs of the city, for quieter nights and easy shopping escapades. Hotels located near the San Telmo bus station are perfect, as you’ll be able to travel all over town easily. If a room with a view is what you need, pick your accommodation by Playa de Las Canteras and enjoy beautiful sceneries with the Atlantic Ocean as a gorgeous backdrop.
