Buzzing by day, Gran Canaria's capital, comes into a league of its own as the sun begins to set. This evening tour of Las Palmas takes you to its two most popular spots – Las Canteras beach area and history-steeped Vegueta in the city centre. It's a great opportunity to mingle with locals and let your hair down.
Your evening kicks off with a couple of hours to poke around Las Canteras area. After work, many locals make a beeline for Mercado del Puerto, a market where you'll find all sorts of local specialities, from fresh fruit and veg to tasty tapas. It's just a stone's throw from the beach. Las Canteras strand is a great spot from which to watch sunset, depending on the time of the year.
After transfer to the city centre, you'll head to Vegueta, the oldest part of Las Palmas. See landmarks such as Christopher Columbus's house and Santa Ana cathedral, built with volcanic rock. There'll be time for you to try out typical tapas or browse the boutiques of Triana, too.
