.The majority of passengers have booked their holiday as a package and can expect to be taken to their destination by one of the many transfer coaches available from the coach station right outside the arrivals hall. This is ideal as all you need to do is hop on your coach and be driven to your holiday location. However, don't despair if you haven't got a coach included within your holiday plans as you will still find it's easy to get around Gran Canaria from the airport by using public transport, taxis or by hiring a car.
There is a great public bus service, which is very useful if you are heading to the top destinations of Las Palmas, Playa del Ingles or Maspalomas. Look for Bus 60 if you are heading to Las Palmas, Parque de San Catalina and Parque de Dan Telmo and look out for Bus 66 if you are heading for Faro de Maspalomas. Buses usually leave every 20 minutes and only cost a few Euros.
