Update on Gran Canaria?

The last time I was in Gran Canaria was a number of years ago, and any information on this site is fairly dated. I have heard that Gran Canaria is not nearly as gay as it used to be, but when I look at their website I see many many bars and places to stay.

Has anybody been there within the last year or so? Is it still a gay happening spot? Any information would be much appreciated.

It sure is a gay hot spot. Yumbo center is still packed with gay restaurants, bars and nightclubs. We used to go to Chez funny boys everyday. The best comedy dragshow I have seen in the world!
Axelbeach Maspalomas is a gay hotel next to yumbo center also a hot spot.

Have fun.

I was there this past New Years and seemed pretty gay to me. This was my first trip there so I don't have anything to compare it to, but the Yumbo mall was full of gay bars, plenty of people in them as well.

I'm heading to Gran Canaria at the end of November for the first time - does anyone who has been recently have any recommendations for the best bars/clubs at Yumbo centre currently?

Can you recommend it as a New Years Eve fun destination? How does it compare to say Puerto Vallarta?

Effectively, you have to work out the times for the various bars. Most bars are open but the crowd are based at certain bars during a given hour then move on to another bar. Its a bit of circuit. Go into a bar at the wrong time and it will be fairly quiet.

Nothing really gets going until midnight unless you wish to start off with a quiet cocktail first.
