Unless you can get a good deal with your home mobile operator or stay just for a few days it will usually be wise to get a local SIM. This could potentially save you good amount of money and offer you some decent data speeds.
Before getting local SIM make sure you smartphone is unlocked and is not attached to your home network. Even if it is the same name it will not work on the same network on another country as it is treated as different network.
When purchasing your SIM card in Spain, you will need to visit a mobile network store. By law, you must provide photo identification when buying a SIM card.
Please be aware that in Canary Islands local tax is cheaper, so quoted prices might be actually a bit lower than in mainland of Spain.
