"Siesta" Top 5 Page for this destination Isla de Gran Canaria Favorite Tip by Maria_75

Isla de Gran Canaria General: 31 reviews and 36 photos

Favorite thing: Be aware of the siesta... Most shops close for a few hours in the middle of the day. Even if they say they are supposed to open at 16.00, they might not open untill 17.00 or even 17.30... ;)

Many of the shops in the big touristcities don´t close for the siesta, but most of the other shops on the island will close for a few hours after lunchtime.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
