HOW CAN I FIND THE ACCOMODATION?

Upon arrival, we will be waiting for you at your accommodation to welcome you, explaining you the plan of the week and some useful tips. To arrive to your accomodation,  you have the following options:

• Contracting the transfer to the airport.
You can book a pickup transfer to the airport for € 30 per way, to be paid directly to the driver. The person in charge will be waiting for you at the airport with a sign with your name on it and he or she will take you directly to your accommodation.
• What about public transport?
If you prefer not to contract the transfer, the easiest and cheapest way to reach the See Yoga accomodation is to take the bus leaving from the airport and taking you to the Parque de Santa Catalina (bus number 60). From there you can go 10 minutes walking to reach the accommodation.
• With a rental car?
If you book your rental car at the airport you must drive towards Las Palmas by the GC-1 motorway and follow signs to Las Palmas until you see the signs for “Mesa y Lopez”. We recommend you to check on Google Maps the crossing of C/Portugal with C/Galileo, park the closest you can to that crossing and walk to the Paseo de Las Canteras where you will find the accommodation.
• And by taxi?
If you want to order a taxi, note that you it will come out more expensive than booking a transfer with us (normally a taxi to the airport has a fee of  35 €). Ask the taxi driver to take you to the crossing streets of Galileo with Portugal in Las Palmas. From there you just have to walk 3 minutes along the Paseo de Las Canteras to find the accommodation.

WHAT IS THE BEST TIME TO VISIT GRAN CANARIA?

Any time is good to travel to the island and the differences in the prices are small. Anyway, the most affordable months are usually the ones with less tourism (May and June). On the internet you will find very affordable flight ticket all year long.
