Usual visitors of the Canary Islands know Gran Canaria somehow overshadows, from a tourist point of view, its eastern counterpart. It’s not that Fuerteventura does not have its own opportunities, but all that is specific of the Canary Archipelago finds its utmost expression in Gran Canaria. Rural tourism, sports tourism, medical tourism and even gay tourism are at their height in Gran Canaria. However, Fuerteventura is not to be disregarded in terms of island hopping. Thus, biking, shopping and nightlife tend to recommend themselves as top things to do in Fuerteventura. Besides the details of each and every attraction in Fuerteventura, tourists should also mind the overall picture: Fuerteventura is, by far, the sunniest and sandiest of all the Canary Islands, which is a matter of no little importance.
In terms of sea means of transport, tourists are recommended to resort to the trips made available by Naviera Armas. Their vessels leave from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and haul ashore at Morro Jable, Puerto del Rosario or Gran Tarajal. The other option is Trasmediterranea, with boats leaving from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria and hauling ashore at Puerto del Rosario.
Binter operates flights between Gran Canaria and Fuerteventura, and the other alternative in terms of island hopping by air refers to Islas Airways. The aircrafts of both of these companies take off at Gando and land at El Matorral.
As expected, in order to get from Gran Canaria to La Palma tourists can resort to boat trips and flights. Such trips are always solidly motivated.
Otherwise referred to as Aquasur, Aqualand Maspalomas is the largest water park in Gran Canaria. As the name suggests, it is located in Maspalomas.
Banana Park is located in Maspalomas, and it stands out as a huge banana plantation pegged out by several hundreds of specimens of orange trees.
