Essential information about Gran Canaria

Hospitals and private clinics

There are a large number of hospitals and clinics in Gran Canaria. They offer both private and public care. Many of the larger ones have English speaking staff.  

Without valid health insurance, private health care can be very expensive in Gran Canaria. Plan accordingly. 

In Las Palmas, there are two large public hospitals that provide health care for all citizens who have a European Health Insurance Card. 

Chemists

Pharmacies/chemists take turns in Gran Canaria operating an after-hours service. Signs are posted outside all pharmacies letting you know when and where the nearest one is that offers an after-hours service. 

Opening hours

Most shops and businesses are open from Monday through to Saturday from 9:30 to 13:30 and from 16:30 to 20:00. Many smaller shops close on Saturday afternoons.  

The bigger shopping centres and supermarkets are open from 10:00 to 21:00 without closing for lunch. They are also sometimes open on Sundays. 

During the high season in the more popular resorts many shops stay open past 22:00.    

Tipping 

Do you tip in Spain? Tipping is common in Spain. It is not necessary, when buying a drink or having a ‘Menu de Dia.’ 

When it comes to a mid-level or expensive restaurant, things are slightly different. But there are no 10% rules or anything like it in Spain; the Spanish may leave whatever small change they have in their pockets.
