Las Palmas is certainly a city that is best navigated in a small or medium-sized vehicle. Sedans, compacts, and small SUVs should all be quite comfortable on the road. Larger vehicles will struggle with many of the city’s one-way streets, especially in the older parts of town. Streetside parking may also be an issue for larger cars as drivers might struggle to find large enough parking spaces for them.
Speed limits don’t vary much on the island, with the standard speed limit set to 50 km/h (31 mph) in the city and 120 km/h (75 mph) on motorways. Always adhere to posted speed limits.
Gas prices aren’t too bad in Las Palmas, especially considering that the city is on an island. On average, drivers can expect to pay around €1.00 ($1.14) per liter of gas, which is about €3.79 ($4.31) per gallon of gas. That is much cheaper than the average price in Spain, which is often as high as €4.92 ($5.59) per gallon.
Parking garages are one of the better options for visitors to Las Palmas, particularly for those who wish to check out the historical areas of the city. Streetside parking is available in varying degrees, but it can become quite scarce and difficult to find in the old town. This is in part because many of the older streets are narrow with limited parking allowed.
