Maspalomas ©
Fondly referred to as “El Sur” by the locals, Maspalomas serves as a hub of entertainment and beach activity on Gran Canary Island.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Playa de San Agustin and Anfi Tauro Golf. Get some historical perspective at Templo Ecumenico de San Salvador and Iglesia de San Juan Bautista. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Maspalomas: Museo & Parque Arqueologico Cueva Pintada (in Galdar) and Las Canteras Beach (in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Playa De Las Burras, take in the awesome beauty at Pico de las Nieves, experience the excitement of Motos Tivoli Gran Canaria, and explore the fascinating underground world of Barranco de Guayadeque.

For photos, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Maspalomas trip planner.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Maspalomas is an approximately 18.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Rio de Janeiro to Maspalomas due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Rio de Janeiro in April, expect Maspalomas to be little chillier, temps between 26°C and 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
