If you're hoping to explore the waters of Gran Canaria don't miss this top value snorkeling excursion, complete with equipment, lunch, and even an open bar included. Beyond the fantastic views of the cliffs and sea, this tour is truly about snorkeling, since your destination is a protected beach where you can snorkel at your leisure. After exploring the undersea world, enjoy a Spanish lunch before heading back to port.

We visited here on a day trip to Arucas. We could see the building from quite far away, however, when we get closer it actually seemed quite small. Inside, it was very informative in Spanish, English and German, with every relic having a thorough description. The construction, history and architecture was interesting to read about but only filled the best of 15 minutes of our day.

My wife and I were lucky to have visited the impressive San Juan Bautista church in Arucas in December when the nativity scene was on display. The church is very imposing and stands proud over the town as you approach. Although it looks really old, it's actually quite a modern construction, but done in a gothic style that suggests it is centuries old. We had around 30 minutes inside the church as part of a full day cruise ship excursion and it was lovely to see it from the inside. The huge nativity scene was a sight to behold, really impressive, with some moving parts too. Apart from the nativity scene the grand looking chandelier was also impressive. If you are visiting Gran Canaria this church is well worth checking out.

Beautiful church perches up on a mountainside. It has lovely stained glass windows and interesting church to visit with many side altars and statues.

The no-gothic church sticks out from the old city and probably it will be the first sight you will come across as there is a big car park just next to it. The church is opened quite late, at 9:30. Not very old church, the construction started in 1909 and took 68 years to complete. It looks as a giant compare to other buildings surrounding the church. Inside was peaceful and quite. I was there alone while visiting the church which caught me by surprised. Not far away from the church while I rambled the old city I bumped into Culture Center. An old traditional Canary house from 17th century with a beautiful wooden patio. On a little court yard you can admire unusual Dragon tree, endemic tree of Canary Islands and Madeira.
