If you’re serious about shopping in El Corte Ingles, you can take advantage of their free bus. This bus stops near various four and five-star hotels in Maspalomas, Playa del Ingles, and San Agustin. Then, it heads straight to the department store, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.
Currently it is running on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
You can visit the department store, and do some shopping. Then you can walk around town, and be ready to be picked up in the evening.
This free shuttle is only valid for non-resident foreign visitors who are willing to make a purchase. Each person must buy something and show proof of payment, at the tourist information desk, before going back.
Our recommendation: definitely worth it, if you are serious about buying things. If you just want to browse, and haven’t made up your mind, the public bus is a better option. It costs just a few euros, and you have no obligation to buy anything at all.
