    Wow-I am not sure what we can do but shop and drink for a one day stop over of a cruise back to USA. Thanks for the tips.

    That artist is good in making that lion scuplture...Wonderful place - no wonder there so many timeshare rats here...but really a great place to visit! Norman :)

    The Dunes de Maspalomas look like a great place to explore. I love uncrowded beaches- this would suit me fine. Nice photos.

    The dunes and sand sculptures are something I'd want to see--and the promenade looks like a great place to pick up souvenirs for friends and family back home! It all looks so inviting....

    I am sure that there are much more to be seen in Gran Canaria...It was the last spot Colon stopped before discovering America!
