How to get there

At the airport: Upon arrival at Arrecife Airport we still make our way to the taxi rank. Although we have been driving in Lanzarote for over twenty years and know the roads like the back of our hands we still like to take a cab to the villa. Taxi's in Puerto del Carmen are inexpensive, frequent and are all fairly new Mercedes. The road from the airport is difficult to navigate if you are unused to the area and a taxi gives you the chance to acclimatise. The price of the taxi will be 10/15 euros and the journey will take less than 10 minutes. A good tip is to write the address on a piece of paper and hand it to the driver if you are unsure of the pronunciation; better to be safe than sorry!

Our arrival: On arrival, after unpacking, we make our way along Avenida Italia until we come to the main beach road, no more than 4 or 5 minutes walk. When we get to the main road on our left is the supermarket, this is out first stop for all of our necessities. One of their hot baguettes makes a lovely snack at lunchtimes. If you do occasionally cook on holiday don’t forget to check out their meat counter, it always looks appetising. The only things we insist on taking from England  are our own favourite brands of tea and coffee, everything else we may need is available from this shop and the great thing is it is within walking distance, handy if you don’t drive. Supermarkets often offer great prices on boxes of cigarettes and spirits so check these out before you come home. Opening times are 8am until10pm. Don’t forget this is a duty free island and if you walk a little way past the supermarket you will come to the duty free shop selling perfumes, after shaves, make up, sunglasses, watches and more.

Getting around: There is a regular bus service between Puerto del Carmen, Arrecife and Teguise which runs approximately every half hour. Buses are cheap and easy to use and the best way to get to the market on Sunday mornings. Alternatively you can hire a car. Car hire is inexpensive compared to the UK and you must hold a full driving licence and be aged 21 or over. Keep your hire agreement in the glove compartment and carry your photo card driving licence or passport with you, if you are pulled over by the police you will need to produce these documents. Lastly; drink driving laws are strongly enforced in Lanzarote so take advantage of the local taxis, of which there are plenty.
