    Be aware when calling overseas!!

    Typical Spanish phone booth...be aware!

    Spanish phones are very, very expensive when calling overseas. After spending in phone booths a lot of Euros, i learnt my lesson!

    Fun Alternatives: A friend gave me a number that he uses and he gets much cheaper rates.

    I call through this number which is 902 99 53 01, from any land line or phone booth, and all i pay is just 4 cents a minute at nights and weekends, or 6 cents at daytime. It is also so easy to use, i have been using it for 4 months now. highly recommended!!!

    I've used it to call the US, UK, France, Italy and some other places where i have friends. I think they have more than 60 countries, so chances are yours will be listed.

    When you dial the number, 902 99 53 01, and then get the operator, just press 1, and 00 plus your country code and your friends number. Believe is worth it! I think you can use it form a mobile phone also with rates around 20 cents a minute or something like that.

    if you want details or list of countries the page is www.iCallCheap.com in English and www.TelefonoBarato.com in Spanish. just check it out, you'll thank me :)

    Step of the bus at Maspalomas and wham they are there to bother the life out of you.
    Go for a stroll - car screeches up = rats again = take your own scratch cards and give them out to this bunch of low life
    Don't take up any offer from them

    Prices are Steep for Not So unusual Items

    The Triana and Muelle shopping areas are the two largest that draw people/tourists. Be careful not to overpay for items. We noted that a lot had a premium to what they should sell for, and therefor, not worth the seek and find venture.

    One of the most haunted cities from street harassment, prostitution, criminality and scam!
    Clever smoke and mirror for tourists who manages to hide his purulence behind the famous sun, sea and spring-like temperatures all year round!

    Fun Alternatives: This place is suitable just for surfers and wannabes.
