Due to its geographical location, possesses Arucas a privileged enclave within the island of Gran Canaria. It is located just 15 minutes (12kms) from the capital, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, 35 minutes from the airport and little less than an hour from the island´s main tourist area.

The main entrances to the municipality of Arucas are: -from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria on the motorway GC-2 North, which continues until the Agaete municipality -from the capital by the ring road of the GC-3 motorway, by the GC-300, old road Tamaraceite -Across the middle of the island from Teror by GC-43

In the near future, the last stretch of the ring road of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria will improve the access without having to enter into the city of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. Moreover, beside the old town, it´s planned installing a train station to connect the north and the capital with the south of the island, which will suppose a new development in the communications.
