Hi thanks for letting me into the forum.

I'm gathering information in order to make an informed decision .

My Husband whom is a Heavy Duty Diesel mechanic ,myself & our currently 2 year old are looking for our forever place & would highly appreciate any & all advice / information about day to day life in Gran Canaria .This would be a long term situation for us moving to the country with savings to purchase a home but only after staying 1 year on the island in order to find the right property/ area to purchase or how ever long the search would take to find what we wish to purchase. So rental long term would come first.

We plan to once Covid starts to settle come across & start to look into everything but would love to get inside information.

When we do come across we would like to stay somewhere out of the tourist zone if you wish as we would use this as a " dry run" to live local..

Many Thanks to all for any & all advice

First of all good idea   give yourself a year to get used to the different way of life   

The heat   the eating habits   the sleeping 

My wife and myself retired here in 2016  5 years on we are still here and love it      although it has been quiet and difficult times during the current situation of covid     but pretty safe too

It takes a good six months just to realise you are not on holiday   but once you get over that conquest  your half way there     we live in puerto mogan  a tourist resort  and to be honest   it has the advantages  of doctor  dentist  bus station  2 supermarkets  church  recreation park for children adults and dogs  primary school 

The roads / rubbish  are cleaned daily  making a healthy enviroment

The global buses are a reasonable price   so unless you had the need for a car    it doesnt make sense to have one   but if you live inland the apartments are cheaper 

I am 1000 per month that includes water and electricity   but if youre looking to buy  then thats a consideration     the only thing is i have seen houses up for sale for years     you will also need to get your residencia  which is getting more difficult 

Hey i could go on and on and on  but you obviously  want more and more questions answered 

Dont hesitate to  contact me  if you need further information        im here to help you 

Bill

I dont think so but you are restricted to how  long you can stay in spain  before returning home 

90 days spain 90 days home
