As they savour these attractions and the pleasantly warm weather, visitors will have elegantly furnished holiday apartments in Puerto Rico readily available to them.

These holiday rentals are surrounded by manicured tropical gardens and some have pools and Jacuzzis.
We have the perfect holiday rental to match your needs:
-Sunbathing: This is what drives most holidaymakers to holiday apartments in Puerto Rico. Who wouldn’t want to lounge or promenade on the fine sands soaking up the boundless Mediterranean sun? Furthermore, the beach here is very clean and refreshments are always within easy reach thanks to the bars and restaurants that line the beach.
-Nightlife: Speaking of beachside entertainment, there is no better place to party the night away than in Puerto Rico where you can dance to live music under the stars. The range of pubs and bars here is mind-blowing. At the Shamrock Bar, for instance, you can get your favourite drink at a reasonable price and groove to Irish folk tunes.
-Water sports: The waters off Puerto Rico’s beaches are ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving. For those who have never tried this form of outdoor activity need not worry. They can still enjoy a close-up view of the marine life after getting some basic training from diving centres there.
-Aqua park: This place is ideal for those on holiday with their little ones as there are plenty of water slides and other amusements tailored for the young ones. For those who have always longed to watch dolphins or whales frolicking about in the sea, there is the opportunity to get a boat trip that will take you right to where the action is.
-Shopping: Those who wish to buy a souvenir or some item of clothing more suited to the warm conditions will find what they are looking for in the Centro Comercial or the Europa Centre. These two shopping centres are not far from majority of the holiday apartments in Puerto Rico.
With temperatures above 20°C for most of the year, tourists don’t have to endure summer crowds to enjoy the warm Mediterranean weather while on holiday. The weather in Puerto Rico is however not hot, it’s more temperate. Warm as summer may be, temperatures rarely surpass 30°C, even in August, the hottest month of the year. But even up to November, temperatures of above 25°C are seen here. Clear sunny days persist into January, though temperatures do dip slightly. Rainfall is quite rare throughout the year.
Puerto Rico, like the rest of Gran Canaria, is served by the Gran Canaria Airport, also known as the Las Palmas Airport. This is really the busiest and most important of the airports on the Canary Islands. Scheduled and charter flights from all over Europe bring passengers in through this facility. The airport is about 45 minutes from Gran Canaria holiday apartments and a taxi or rental car can get them there along the GC-1 motorway.
