The capital of Gran Canaria is a delight for strollers with areas such as Ciudad Jardin, where beautiful gardens surround the Canarians' homes, and the old quarter of Vegueta, where Christopher Columbus stopped in 1492. Explore the island's beautiful landscape; the highlight is a visit to the Guanches' caves, where the island's primitive inhabitants once dwelled.

Bought an excursion Come n Enjoy Gran Canaria. They set us up with a hired car to pick us up at the port, driver was very professional, car was a Lexus and very clean. Took an hour drive to Maspalomas to to the Gran Canaria Fun Cup experience. Was a blast getting to race Fun Cup VW’s. After hearing back up to Santa Cruz, we wandered through town and ended up having sangria and pizza just off the beach with a spectacular ocean view. After a little more shopping and buying some Havana club 5 year rum for $12euros we wandered through the mall near the ship- huge 4 story mall. Found some great sea salts (a red wine one, charcoal one, herbed one and picante one they are wonderful!)

Thoroughly enjoyed this port. We used the hop on hop off bus to get a feel for where we wanted to spend a few hours. A few other cruisers we talked to on the ship said they always go to the 'old town' when they visit this port. Sure enough that's where we got off the bus. S.I. Cathedral is amazing. Definitely spend some time there, take in the history from the late 1400s to the present day and take the stairs to the top of the tower. Just downhill from the cathedral by the theater is an excellent restaurant, tasca la Piccadita. Great menu selections but definitely try the waiter's suggestions here.... It's going to be fresh. While you enjoy lunch you are sitting at the edge of the old town and just up the stairs is the street level of the new town and your bus stop for hop on hop off and back to port.
