Whether you’re visiting Gran Canaria courtesy of picking up a last-minute bargain or planning to relocate there, Going Local in Gran Canaria is the book for you.

Covering everything from places to see, property advice and career opportunities, Going Local  is much more than a travel guide. New residents will be delighted by its accessible, humorous style and the inside scoop on what's hot and what's not, coming from British journalist and resident of over ten years, Matthew Hirtes.

Reviews:Victoria Twead, author of Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools wrote:

An extraordinarily honest, detailed, colourfully-written guide that both informs and entertains. Highly recommended.

Andrea and Jack Montgomery – Going Native in Tenerife wrote:

With a rare depth of insight, Matthew weaves his personal experiences through an engaging narrative to show us a different face to Gran Canaria.

Matthew Hirtes probably knows more about Gran Canaria than many who were born there. Going Local is an engaging and authoritative guide for visitors and new residents alike.
