  1. What's it like living in Las Palmas?
Las Palmas is a very relaxed ocean-side town with a great atmosphere for travellers. Normal business hours are 8-6 Monday through Friday, businesses tend to take a few hours off in the middle of the day. On Sundays the majority of shops are closed. Saturdays and Sundays are always full of local events, from small festivals to live music.

The population of Las Palmas is close to 450.000, the city is divided on several areas, and we are right at the beach zone.
4. What area of Las Palmas are you at?
Our zone is Las Canteras beach, a 5-kilometer long promenade and a touristic area. We're far from the very center of Las Canteras and don't have crowds of tourists just here, but the vibes are great.
5. How is the weather in Las Palmas?
Overall, Las Palmas is one of the warmest, sunniest places in Europe to visit during the winter,. The average temperature is 22ºC throughout the year. You will never have to wear a winter jacket in the city, but if you ever decide to go up to the mountains in the winter season be prepared to experience the cold and enjoy the microclimates of the island (down to +5ºC on top of the island during the winter months).
