Puerto de Mogán, the Little Venice of Gran Canaria
The pretty resort of Puerto de Mogán, fringed by a beautiful beach on the southern coastline of Gran Canaria is the creation of Rafael Neville. He transformed a fishing village into a stunning seaside resort featuring traditional style white buildings bridging little canals that flow down to a marina and a harbour on the Atlantic Ocean. Nicknamed the Little Venice of Gran Canaria exploring the three distinct areas is a delightful way to spend a day.

Taking a trip to Gran Canaria? I can recommend a visit to the Hacienda La Rekompensa a banana plantation with a nineteenth century Canarian house at its heart. Surrounded by a lush green landscape and close to the town of Arucas it incorporates the Plátano Canario museum and a shop bursting with produce based on the banana.
Arehucas a Rum Distillery in Gran Canaria
While on the Canary Island of Gran Canaria take a stroll through the history of Canarian rum at Destilerias Arehucas (Arehucas Distillery) and learn about the production process of this distinctive rum - fresh and aged - before enjoying a tasting of the rums and liqueurs produced here. The distillery is housed in the original, renovated buildings of an old sugar factory surrounded by fields of sugar cane plants.
