Have you visited the delightful fishing town of Puerto de Mogan?
Up until very recently the only was to get to this charming village was by boat or along the hair-raising coast road. But last week the new motorway tunnel opened in the Tauro valley, meaning the once roughly 30 minute drive from Puerto Rico now takes only 5 minutes!
If yes, you’ll be pleased to hear that the nearby fishing village of Arguineguin has lots going on throughout the week to mark the Easter holidays.
The picturesque fishing village of Arguineguin, is the closest town to Anfi, and is a firm favourite for anyone visiting Gran Canaria. It can be reached by car or bus in less than 10 minutes, although many people choose to walk from Anfi along the coastal path. It’s a gentle walk that takes approximately 30 minutes. Don’t forget to grab a bottle of water before you set off!
The most popular day to visit Arguineguin is Tuesday as this is market day. Hundreds of people flock to the village to browse the stalls for souvenirs, fresh produce and artisan crafts.
The village also boasts a superb selection of fresh seafood restaurants and quaint Tapas Bars, as well as a bustling harbour and small, a sheltered sandy beach.
During the Easter week celebrations the town will be a hive of excitement as a fairground is being set up in the market square.
Beginning on Wednesday 25th March through to Sunday 31st March, there will be stalls offering lots to tempt visitors, including food stalls serving delicious local delights, such as grilled fat chorizo sausages, roasted red peppers and the famous Canarian wrinkled potatoes with the spicy Mojo sauce, papas arrugadas con mojo.
On the Thursday 28th March, the churro stalls, which serve a traditional type of sugared doughnut, will be offering free churros and hot dipping chocolate to children from 18:00 hours onwards.
During the celebrations the fun will begin in the early evening, carrying on late into the night, in true Canarian-style.

We have got lots of cracking Easter fun lined up at Anfi and below are some of the highlights!
Our Anfi mascot, Benito the Bull, loves to draw. In fact, one of his favourite hobbies is drawing pretty pictures of Anfi Beach!
So to celebrate his love of art, Benito is launching an exciting new drawing competition to uncover the budding artists amongst our mini-Members and guests.
The competition will be organised by the Anfi Mini Clubs and is open to any children staying at Anfi up to the age of 12 years.
To enter, our mini-guests need to draw or paint a picture, on a special drawing sheet available from Anfi Mini Clubs, of their favourite thing about their Anfi holiday.
It can be a picture of the pool, the mini-golf, a beach scene or a fun excursion they took part in during their holiday – anything that means ‘My Anfi Holiday’ to them!
The competition will be judged in 2 categories (3 – 6 years) and (7 – 12 years).
Each month Benito will choose a winner from both categories out of the participants from our 4 Mini Clubs. We will feature these 8 winners on the Anfi Facebook page and ask our Facebook page fans to choose a winner from each category.
The winners will then receive a great selection of Benito goodies by post!
Plus, at the end of the year we will enter all of our monthly winners into our big prize draw and the lucky winners from each category will receive an iPod!
Good luck everyone and happy drawing!

Yes it is Father’s Day here in Spain!
El Dia del Padre is celebrated throughout Spain, Portugal and South America on the 19th of March. It coincides with St Joseph’s Day which commemorates Joseph, the patron saint of carpenters and possibly history’s most prolific Father.
All over Gran Canaria people will be celebrating today with a family get together and you too could join in the celebrations. Why not surprise the Dad in your life by wishing him a Happy Father’s Day in Spanish, ‘Feliz dia del Padre’!
Or if you are at Anfi right now, spoil him with a surprise Father’s Day Treat – as the saying goes, ‘when in Rome, do as the Romans do’.
We have a great selection of exhilarating water sports available at Luis Molina Sports on Anfi Beach or why not book up a scuba diving session at Scuba Sur situated in the Anfi shopping centre?
And what Dad could resist a delicious Indian meal or a fresh pizza from our restaurants? Then of course there is always the Havana Bar, situated next to the Plaza, showing live sports and serving cool beers – the perfect Father’s Day treat!
Happy Father’s Day to all the great Dads out there!
