The variety of things to do in Canary Islands has attracted travelers for decades. The islands are situated in the Atlantic Ocean, only 100 km west of Morocco and are one of the lushest regions of Spain. While a part of the country, the Spanish government recognized the islands as one of the regions with special consideration of historical nationality thus protecting their traditions and culture. The archipelago comprises seven main islands as well as multiple smaller islets. The most prominent islands include Tenerife, Fuerteventura, La Palma, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, La Gomera and El Hierro. Historically, these islands served as a bridge between three continents: Europe, America, and Africa. The nearly-perfect year-round climate makes the Canarias an attractive destination any time of the year.
