Puerto Rico in Gran Canaria can almost be described as a mini Playa del Ingles. Most of the bars around the resorts have some form of entertainment.
Earlier in the evenings you will find huge screen televisions showing various programmes from all over Europe , usually British comedy shows… but also football matches. As the evening draws on, the DJs take up their posts, and you can bop along until the early hours.
There’s always a varied type of entertainment happening… quizzes, karaoke, cabaret, and even darts tournaments. The larger bars have a dance floor, and rely upon the DJ for the entertainment. They usually don’t close until it starts getting quiet, which can mean a long night. You’ll also notice that some of the complexes will invite you in to share their in-house entertainment.
Night clubs tend to open nearer midnight and stay open for an hour or so longer than the bars. You’ll notice that the drinks are more expensive, and there’s usually an entrance fee at weekends. But look out for the promoters during the week – as they give away free entrance tickets. The Europa center at the top of the main hill offers a more family orientated atmosphere, especially during the high season, when the young-adult crew tend to stay down with the bottom center.
For a bit of peace and quiet, then stroll to the main harbour to the left of the beach. There you can pull up a chair, and sip a good local wine or beer whilst watching the world go by.
