It is incredibly busy here from about the 23rd of December until the 5th of January but fairly quiet outside those dates. If you fancy spending Christmas in Gran Canaria you should book your tickets soon since most of the accommodation is full and the travel prices go up if you leave it too long.
The exchange rates in Gran Canaria might be lower if you have been here before because the pound is very weak but that doesn’t mean you won’t have a great week. If you budget and decide how much to spend per day, you can do lots of different things like trips to Mogan market, Playa del Ingles, Palmitos Park Gran Canaria and more. There are also some very good restaurants and bars here which don’t cost the earth.
