Hi all,

My best friend's family owns Marina Apartments in Puerto de Mogan, GC -snip- She is badgering me since long to come and visit her. Now, finally I have planned a vacation to GC in mid-March. I am going with my husband and kids.

Can anyone here suggest me any interesting places for day trips outside Puerto de Mogan?

Thank you in advance.

Sophie :)

There are quite many options for your trip.

Near the place you are staying is the Palmitos Park, which is a nice way to spend a day with your kids, even though it's quite expensive to go there.. But it's a brilliant park.
You can take an excursion to the capital city as well, Las Palmas.
For spectacular views you should not miss an excursion to the mountains, to Roque Nublo. ''A must see''.
In addition, you can have marine excursions that take you out onto the sea, or you can even visit other Canary islands.

There are even more things you can do there. It depends on how many days you will spend on the island and what are your preferences.
I would advise you to take a good guidebook and take a look on it before you arrive on the island, so you can decide in advance what you are willing to see the most.
This really works for me.
I hope I helped you.
