The town is encircled by hills and boasts one of the best sunshine records on Gran Canaria. A relatively small resort in comparison to others on the island, Puerto Rico has been built on and around two of these large hills so it is quite heavily populated for its size. Parts of these hills are so steep that the local council have created a series of "walkways of stairs" to make life a bit easier on the legs but that makes the area unsuitable to those who are less mobile and to those with young children in buggies so consider this if you are planning on purchasing a new home here.

The main attraction of the area is without a doubt its beautiful man made beach with its soft white sand imported from the Sahara.
