You need to read the 'sticky' threads which will answer a lot of questions for you. Gran Canaria is my favourite part of Spain.

"i realise it is going to be difficult moving abroad and i only want to hear from people with tips not people trying to discourage us from going."


Not much to add really then. Your partner IF he can find a job will earn €1200 - €1400 a month but a contracted job are rarer than hens' teeth, rent on the island is higher than mainland Spain due to year round good weather so it'll cost you half his pay in rent, then utility bills, food, transport for a basic sort of apartment. Lots and lots and lots of hair dressers, manicurists etc all grub hunting for business so do the maths.

It will cost you a couple of thousand euro's to rent (with deposit etc) plus other start up charges for things like telephone so really you need to land with €10,000 as a minimum for a stay of up to five months perhaps (that is a bare minimum).

Good luck.
