The Canary Islands boast a superb year round climate with winter temperatures being in the low 20’s (°C) whereas summers are hot but not uncomfortably so when they reach the high 20’s. This means that whatever time of the year you decide to holiday in Gran Canaria you can be sure that the weather will match your expectations. This in turn brings in other considerations we all have to think through when deciding where to go on holiday. One of these considerations is how far we can make our travel money stretch.If your biggest concern when booking a holiday is your budget, then the best time of year for you to visit Gran Canaria may be in December, January or February as prices will be cheaper during these months. The most expensive time for a holiday in Gran Canaria is usually during July and August when package holidays hit their peak season due to the school holidays in the UK. However, holidaying at this time can’t always be avoided when travelling with children.
Once decided on the right time of year to visit Gran Canaria to suit your budget, there are countless attractions to choose from to spend your hard earned travel money.
Theme Parks are big business in Gran Canaria and great places to let loose with your holiday cash. For the more traditionalists who like the feeling of zipping round on a roller coaster or seeing the sites from the top of a Ferris wheel then Holiday World is the ideal spot. For something a little different, a trip to Sioux City could well prove the ideal day out. Here you will witness gunfights, enjoy time in saloons or relax at a western barbeque. This is a great place for live performances to keep the whole family entertained.
If you want a little wining and dining while on holiday in Gran Canaria then a trip to the capital of Las Palmas is perfect for you. Here you’ll be able to enjoy authentic Canarian food or high standard international cuisine, in the most cosmopolitan of settings. Before eating why not spend some of your travel money in some of the many designer fashion outlets found in the city?
