A Day in Las Palmas (Gran Canaria), part 1
Cruise day #6 (of 12), we stopped at Las Palmas in the Gran Canaria. The cruise terminal is cruiser friendly. It's located in the city center, 100 meters away from shopping center and the bus stop for HOHO. Also, there's free wifi. I read that you can easily see the sights on foot.
To make it easy, we decided to take the HOHO and sightsee. We planned on seeing the sights first before disembarking to one particular stop. Las Palmas is a large modern city. Very pretty too with parks and nice houses and lovely ocean views.
On this January day, it was very cold and the wind was strong. We just could not stand another minute on the bus, so we got off at stop #5, which is the old town or Vegueta quarter of Las Palmas (photos next post)
In the meantime, here are some of the photos we took upon arrival in Las Palmas and from the moving HOHO bus.
This beauty was docked next door.
Beautiful cold day.
Local buses are called guagua.
