Spring has officially sprung (which isn´t saying much considering the lack of winter this year)! But the days are getting longer, the nights are getting warmer and the Gran Canaria cumbre is fully in bloom with wild flowers and fresh, spring air.

It´s a perfect time not only to enjoy the monthly events, but to check out some of the gorgeous nature around the island, like Charco Azul, Barranco de las Vacas and Moya!

I´ll be adding new events all month as they come to my attention, so don´t forget to bookmark this page for updates.
