John MacDonald, Ambassador Club’s managing director, is responsible for knowing where all of the places to be in Gran Canaria are, so that he can pass them onto members. This is the case with upcoming New Year’s Eve celebrations for 2013. MacDonald has been investigating all of the different types of spots to hang out, and has come up with a list of the top places to be when the clock hits midnight on January 1st.

One of the best spots to ring in the New Year is on a boat in the Anfi Del Mar, or off the balcony of a room in the Anfi Emerald overlooking the ocean. Every year there are fireworks that are set off over the ocean, this is a breathtaking way to ring in the New Year, and one that John MacDonald of Ambassador Club highly recommends for the entire family. It is also a great place to hang out the day after, considering that the temperature in islands is perfect short weather, even in January. So ring in the New Year on the beach, instead of huddled in coats out in the snow.

The Gran Canaria is known for its nightlife which is why John MacDonald, managing director of Ambassador Club, only recommends this activity for adults. It seems as though everyone gets the memo and heads out to local pubs and restaurants until 8am the next morning. There are several hotspots like Las Palmas that gets a good gathering every year, but the best way to stay low key is to ask the locals. There are several casual places to enjoy, without having to pay heavy fees to enter. Depending on the location, travelers should ask the front desk when they arrive, to find the best casual places to ring in the New Year.

For families, a nice dinner is one of the best ways to set the foundation for a night of festivities. Whether that includes swimming in the pool, or catching a movie. This is John MacDonald’s recommendation for families looking to stay out of the night air. By eating at a nice restaurant, and cuddling up to movies, families can stay out of the crazy night life. He recommends asking the front desk for great restaurants, or catch the fireworks of Playa del Ingles. This is a popular destination for many people and is perfect for a family trip.

John MacDonald, Ambassador Club’s managing director, listens out for the best places to go every year so that members can have the best options while on vacations. This is only a few of the many places that have New Year’s eve activities going on, as Gran Canaria has many things going on at all time. One thing is for certain though, many people jet down to Gran Canaria to enjoy the beach, sun, and warmer weather to start their years off on the right foot.
