A charming island with a Spanish heart and an eclectic pulse — Gran Canaria is the off-beat escape you've been dreaming of.
Optional Trip Start Dates

The past few years have challenged our communities. But we have come out the other side more convinced than ever that curating community-driven travel experiences is a mission worthy of collaborative effort.
That’s why we’re bringing our communities together, as one, for an epic Anywhere-Work adventure, in Gran Canaria. This partnership will provide greater access to a breathtaking destination, and to each other as open-minded global citizens. In blending our communities and sharing the experience, we’re building even stronger connections and curating even more impactful experiences.
Beach day, anyone?
Agaete, our corner of the majestic island that is Gran Canaria, is a picturesque haven of historical sites. Whitewashed houses from 19th Century are perched along the slopes of the valley, as well as breathtaking churches and secret gardens inspired by travel and adventure.
And don’t forget neighboring Puerto de las Nieves, the quaint seaside town that serves only the freshest seafood on the island. Nom!
Gran Canaria Housing
Just steps from world-class beaches
Mountain AND ocean views. A short 2-min stroll from, not one, but two beaches. A sun-soaked rooftop terrace. Need we say more? This time around we’re staying at El Cabo Coliving, a beautifully unique building designed specifically for peeps like us.
You can expect bright, open rooms, ensuite bathrooms and super fast wifi. You’ll also have access to a fully equipped communal kitchen and outdoor BBQ area.
Work, meet, and collaborate
El Cabo will also be making our coworking dreams come true, with 24/7 access to an onsite coworking space, unlimited freshly ground coffee and a rooftop work area to escape to.
We’ve got everything you need to be productive.
More on the Partnership
As the original two companies to provide international coworking adventures, we have collectively curated experiences for over 3,500 individual travelers in more than 30 countries. Now, with more people working remotely today than ever before, it’s time we work together in the Canary Islands!
If you’re used to traveling with either Hacker Paradise or Unsettled, you might notice some small differences in how we communicate with you before and after the trip. And while you’re there, you may experience new approaches to familiar concepts. And that’s the point – to shake things up, bring more people together who can live remotely, and challenge the way we do things! We always ask you to expand your comfort zones when you travel with us; in February, Unsettled and Hacker Paradise will be doing it alongside you!
Of course, if you’ve never traveled with either of us, the only question you’ll be asking yourself this month is why you didn’t do so earlier.
No matter which organization you sign up through, your Gran Canaria experience this month will be a grand experiment in collaboration and co-creation. Over the past 8 years, our organizations have independently designed travel experiences that focus on human connection and boundless adventure. This month will be no different. We will share the same accommodations and coworking, the same meals, the same facilitators, and the same calendar.
Gran Canaria Highlights
Just a few reasons you'll fall for this destination
The Canary Islands are themselves a chain of volcanic ocean islands. The last explosion on Gran Canaria left a massive crater — the perfect setting to explore and live out those Indiana Jones fantasies. Then finish your adventure with a glass of vino at one of the local wineries who make good use of the volcanic soil to grow their grapes organically and sustainably.
Mouthwatering Fusion Food
Local Canarian is a rich mixture of native Guanche elements, as well as Spanish, African, and Latin American influences. The cuisine is 1) simple and 2) damn tasty. Freshness is priorotized above anything, which means top quality meats and fish straight from the ocean. You'll also get hearty soups, stews and vegetables. Let's dig in!
Life's a Beach
The beaches on the island are nothing short of world-class, and you best believe you'll be spoiled for choice. Lap up those rays on Las Canteras beach or pull up a sun bed on Playa Grande, where the waters are calm thanks to an offshore lava reef. There are tons of hidden spots too, so make sure to pack more than one swimsuit!
Drop into a different world, below sea-level, where the marine life glows and dances in the sun streaks. And if snorkeling isn't your thing, stay above the water with a parasailing experience that will get your adrenaline pumping! When it comes to water activities on Gran Canaria, there's really something for everyone.
That Barrio Bustle
The energy felt in the vibrant, colorful barrios of San Nicolas and San Juan is second to none. Perched on the top of a cliff, you'll get to take in panoramic views of the city as you wander the narrow, cobbled streets. These neighborhoods were home to some of the first inhabitants of the island, and are steeped in history.
Gran Canaria provides a wide range of public hangs — a social pastime inherited from the Island's European cousin. Kick it with pals in the ornate plazas, watch live performances to local folk music in Pueblo Canario, the traditional Canarian village, or scope the local hipster scene across vintage shops, cute bars and quirky terraces.
