Bufadero de la Garita

Telde, Gran Canaria

Just off the north coast of Africa sits the second most populous of the Canary Islands. Often called a “little continent,” this island is known for having numerous microclimates, or wide variations in natural setting, vegetation and temperature. From waterfalls to beaches to lush forests and barren, near desert like landscapes that remind one of the Grand Canyon, it’s easy to explore this 600-square-mile island. Don’t miss a visit to the Cruz de Tejada, an ancient pilgrimage site near the island’s center, or a trip to the famous beaches.
