Although the bootcamp starts on Monday, you may arrive already on Saturday if you want to join the hiking trip to the heart of the island and visit the Maspalomas' sand dunes. It's completely voluntary but the stunning interior of the island is a must-see. Check the video from our last trip.
We don't offer accommodation. Everybody has different expectations when it comes to sleeping arrangements. You can find a lot hotels, hostels and airbnbs on the Las Canteras beach front or a few hundred meters away from it. After booking the course, you will get invited to our Slack channel, where you can find a room-mate if you prefer to share an appartment.
Las Palmas has a lot of hotels and airbnb apartments to offer. When choosing your accomodation, bear in mind that you will be going back and forth between your place and Soppa de Azul, our co-working space, quite often during the day. That’s why it’s best to stay within a 10-minute walking distance from Soppa.
To put things in context, when you look at the map, on the left hand side you will see a 4 km long Las Canteras beach. It takes around 35-40 minutes to walk from one end to another.
Here are a few nearby hotels recommended by our past participants:
NH Las Palmas Playa las Canteras
Hotel Aloe Canteras
NH Imperial Playa
Sercotel Hotel Cristina Las Palmas
