There are lots of Mediterranean Cruises  with all sorts of places to visit,so i thought i would write about some nice places to see if you ever go on a cruise to the Canary Islands. I went to Gran Canaria and stayed in a hotel in Las Palmas in 1986 and it was a fantastic place then and i don't suppose that it has changed very much today. So here are my three choices which i hope you will like.


This fantastic park includes an enormous volcanic crater some 48 km in circumference,must have been one hell of a bang when that went off.The park itself is 2000 metres above sea level and in winter you have gale force winds which sometimes close the roads,not due to snow but to sandstorms. The landscape gives one the impression of one of the old Clint Eastwood cowboy movies, maybe they where filmed there,and the temp can get to aroung 40 degrees C. You can get access to the volcano either by foot or by cable car and on a clear day from the summit you have a fantastic view of Gran Canaria. This is a most visited attraction and not to be missed.


Archaeologists scoffed when a local newspaper said that they had found step pyramids on Tenerife. Saying that they were only agricultural stone terraces. Later they found out that these were niether terraces or random piles of stone. They were almost the same as found in Mexico,Peru and ancient Mesopotamia. So go and have a visit and maybe the lost city of atlantis theory is alive and well and living there.


Now this place is a tourist mecca built in the late 1960's and it is the place where North Europeans come and party. So if you want noise and fun staying up all night then this is the place for you. With row upon row of British pubs and fish and chip shops this is a home from home for those who don't like Spanish food and want to spend the nights in the coolest hotspots and sleep it off on the beach the next day.

Take a cruise some day,i am not saying that you will get to see these places that i have just written about. So if not, there are many more attractions you can arrange to see from the staff on board ship.
