Less than 30 minutes by car from Las Palmas, Arucas is a small but picturesque village worthy for a stop and go.
PUERTO DE LAS NIEVES (AGAETE)
This is heaven instead!! Agaete is a really nice and small town in the northern-west part of Gran Canaria but it’s a must to have a walk around the port area: Puerto de la Nieves.
Moving towards the south of the island I suggest a stop in Agüimes, another small town in which every single door, window and facade is Instagrammable. Every tiny house looks in a different way, with different colours, features and decorations.
