In the sun scorched surrounds of Gran Canaria island lies a recreation of the American Wild West with cowboys and Indians, gunfights and saloons, and even a petting zoo for the kids.
Originally built as a stage set for 'A Fistful of Dollars' starring Clint Eastwood, Sioux City has since found fame as a popular theme park. Keep your wits about you as you meander along the dusty streets, past the sherrif's office, bank, and general store, for you could get caught in a shoot out. Bank robberies, saloon fights, cattle stampedes, rodeos, and gunfights are all part of everyday life at Sioux City!
If you visit Sioux City on a Friday, stick around for a Wild West BBQ (extra charge), stunts, gunfights, and cancan dancers. It's a wild day out for the whole family!
Sioux City is on Gran Canaria's south coast, about a 40 minute drive from the capital.
From Las Palmas, catch bus 50 to Faro Maspalomas, where you can catch a taxi or bus 29 directly to Sioux City.
If going by car, follow the GC-1 highway south-east from Las Palmas and look for signs to 'Sioux City' when you pass Tarajalillo (49kms/30.5mi, approximately 40mins).
