On Gran Canaria go to Los...
On Gran Canaria go to Los Palmitos park. Its a bit touristy but thats half the island.
The bird-shows are very funny and afterwards you can walk along the flowers, birds, alligators, monkeys and so on and just enjor the heat and the surroundings
To Las Palmas Airport
No matter what any one says, in a derogatory manner about the buses, IGNORE THEM, the service to and from the airport is fantastic. The bus is always on time...runs from early morning to late evening and costs €3.20...as against €35+, before the tip, were one to travel by taxi! Route 66.....25 mins past the hour from Iguazu 3(a central example) but pick-up points over a large area. LESS convenient coming from the airport as many will be 'in a hurry'...still, if you can wait until 20 past the hour, the a bus every hour from just to the right of the taxi pick-up point at the airport. NEVER consider a taxi to Los Palmitos Park... a waste of money and were you never travekl sick before, you might well be after THAT! Take the bus.
