Xmas Questions

by irac+

first time in Lanzarote. staying in Playa Pocillos. arriving on Dec. 23rd.
what is the closest supermarket to Apt. Costa Mar for basic groceries?
Do supermarkets, shops and restaurants close over the Xmas period? and for what duration?
I would appreciate advise on local restaurants- our preferance is for good quality food as against cheap fast food.
Could anyone suggest a good restuarant for the night of the 25th.(not turkey etc. dinner)? would it be advisable to book in advance?
Would like to see the island. Is it best to hire a car or will many sights be closed over Xmas period?
Is anyone aware of any jazz, blues or local folk groups playing on the island?
Can anyone suggest a good place for a relaxing drink (i.e. no karaoke or tribute bands)?

Not so sure about Lanzarote,but we spent Christmas in Gran canaria and everything was open.
Spanish Christmas is a different time or so I believe so they cater over Christmas for the many tourists.
Car Hire places were all open as were the supermarkets

Hi.
I will try to reply to some of your numerous questions. :-)

Supermarkets won´t be closed during the Xmas period. Probably they will close xmas day, and day after because it is sunday....but even those days, some will be open.

Both times I have been in the island we have hired a car. Natural landscapes don´t close for holidays! And, if something is closed...you can drive to the next one. It is a small "friendly to drive" island. Some villages in the inner part are very interesting.

It is some years since we went, so my tips about restaurants may be out of date. I would ask to locals (some spanish may help) or hotel staff. Fresh fish and potatoes are specialities.

Have fun.

"Spanish Christmas is a different time or so I believe so they cater over Christmas for the many tourists."

I think(to be true, I am sure) we have christmas at the same time as everybody in catholic world has: dec 25th.
Our economy is strongly based in tourism, so many people must work during those days. I guess that with the poor economy situation we have now...every tourist will be more than welcome, and hotels and restaurants and supermarkets are ansiouxly waiting for that moment of the year.

As I stated everything was open at Christmas,no sign of anything closing

Travel Tips for Isla de Lanzarote

Unique vulcanic beautifull landscape

by catnl

I will never forget the red and black colours of the vulcanic ground... amazing colours. Breathtaking.
When ur on trip on this island by car u will hardly meet anyone on da roads, its so peaceful.......magnificient.

Lanzarote is classy.....

by rachel_sun

I enjoyed renting a car and discovering all the beautiful little beaches and coves.Seeing the baron scenery and just stopping off where ever i liked.Valle de la Geria is worth visiting.This area seems black and baron and dead, but wine is grown here.Its very strange scenery,almost like being on another planet.Beautiful flowers grow along roads here in spring.The vineyards are weird too.Each vine grows in a hollow dug into the shingle like rock.There is a small stone wall built around part of each hollow.This is to protect the vines.It is very sucessful as over 200kgs of grapes can be grown on each vine.I think the vines look pretty.Make the landscape look unsual but beautiful.The grapes make dry white wine and it can bought in Uga in Bodegas.Be careful when walking here as rocks here are very sharp.Well worth seeing as the landscape is very scenic and yet baron but beautiful. Lanzarote was very natural and i miss the laid back atmosphere.As there are no big hotels,the place is beautiful and unspoilt,which is hard to find nowadays.I found the Island pleasantly uncrowded and very relaxing.I would say that Lanzarote is a very classy,tasteful place.There is so much to see and do.
The food here was fabulous and the wine (which is grown here)was the bees knees...
Lanzarote has a special charm and Cesar has made it this way....

[AROUND LANZAROTE: car hire and small distances]

by pikuu

Lanzarote is not a big island. The size south-north is about 60 km and west-east about 20 km. So sizes have a big influence for distances' perception. Usual distance between immportant visiting places is not bigger than 5, 10 sometimes 20 km. I suppose that You travel home-work can be longer than trip from (for example) Costa Teguise to Jardin de Cactus (only 15 min.). Here on Lanza everything is close :)

The bus network is great between main resorts and capital. Every 20-30 minutes you can use tha bus Costa Teguise - Arrecife (about 1 Euro). But travelling by public bus to the central or north places is difficult. So the best way is to rent a car. Petrol is cheaper than in almost all the European countries and also rent payment is not too high (maybe because some kind of price competition between car hire offices).

Haria

by rachel_sun

I found Haria very green and full of palm trees and other plants.Not many people come here and i liked that as it was very quiet.It is very unspoilt too.The little streets were lovely to walk along and i loved seeing all the beautiful trailing flowers in blossom.I came apon a main square and loads of birds singing and i sat in the shade and it was so relaxing.I think i liked the area so much as it was so green and there were palms everywhere and cacti.As we drove upto the village we saw big meadows and fields full of crops and flowers. We stopped at a view point on the way to the village as it had great views and just admired the beautiful green lush valley.It was so different from all the rest of Lanzarote.

Tea drinkers

by lomi

You will find that Lanzarote is not an island of tea drinkers. If you go to a cafe bar or restaurant you will find decaffeinated coffee, expresso coffee, white frothy coffee (americano), and cafe con leche con leche (coffee with milk and evaporated milk...very very sweet).

Or, camomile tea is available (manzanilla), at most bars, which is served in a small cup.

Ocassionally a bar may have teabags and serve it with luke warm water, so if they have teabags available, you may want to remind them to serve it in boiling water!
