Travel: Paso Chico Written & photos by: Ross Christianson

P

aso Chico is a small resort for gay men only, featuring six Bungalows on the one and only Gran Canaria! Located conveniently close to many destinations and hot spots on the island, this resort is sure to give you the best experience you can find. Thanks to the Gran Canaria Tourism Board and Paso Chico, my fellow travel writers and I were able to stay the week at this fabulous resort. I’ve compiled a list of my favorite reasons to stay at Paso Chico when visiting Gran Canaria.

1. Size Matters! You will certainly have the time of your life at Paso Chico regardless of the size of your group or

the time of the year. For the solo or small group travelers, Paso Chico’s size will make it easy for you to get to know your neighbors. As a person who frequently travels alone, this is something that I appreciate. On the flip side, Paso Chico would be a fabulous destination for a large group of friends. Since there are six bungalows, the resort can easily accommodate a group of up to 12 of your closest friends. Just imagine the shenanigans you could get into if you had the resort all to yourselves! Gran Canaria is a year round destination since the weather is always sunny and warm. In fact, Gran Canaria is a common destination for Northern European travelers looking to get away from the winter weather and enjoy fun in the sun. Carnival Season and Pride season are a perfect time to visit Gran Canaria. The island has two Pride festivals: one in May and one in November. Both festivals are conveniently located across the street from Paso Chico at the Yumbo Center.
