The volcanic origins of Gran Canaria are very apparent in the island’s coastal ruggedness and contrasting verdant interior. Many of the rocky ravines that lead down to the coastline have been developed with holiday installations; Puerto Rico is one. The apartment complexes and holiday resort properties adorn the sides of the otherwise barren cliffs.
Puerto Rico has a sandy beach encompassed by two small harbors. Inside the resort, the majority of shops and restaurants are situated in commercial centers. The main center is at the heart of Puerto Rico, the Europa Shopping Centre is in the higher part, and the Pasarela centre backs the beach. These shopping centers have all the necessary amenities and facilities for a bustling resort like restaurants, bars, pubs, shops and banks.
