Getting Around

Las Palmas is said to have one of the best bus networks in Spain and it is easy to get around the city by bus. Yellow buses travel within the city and blue buses travel to other parts of the island. The two main bus stations can be found at Santa Catalina Bus Station and San Telmo Bus Station. Taxis are also fairly plentiful and can be hailed on the street or ordered by phone.

Although possible, hiring a car can be an inconvenience in the city as the roads can be confusing, and parking is expensive and often hard to come by. Visitors should only consider hiring cars if planning to explore farther afield. The historic centre of Las Palmas, Vegueta, is best explored on foot, as is the maritime district of Triana.
