Costa Teguise: supermarkets, apts

by LNata

I am planning my trip to Lanzarote in October. Have read almost everything on VT already and cant wait. Still have a few questions.

1. I have booked a studio in Molino de Guatiza Aparthotel because of very good price and location. Reviews in web are very limited and very old. Would be happy if anyone would tell me at least something about them, good or bad. The apartments are located very close to Playa Bastian Apts which have a lot of good reviews here, but they are not available for booking any more. If Molino de Guatiza is very bad, it is still not late to re-book for anything else.

2. I love fish and shrimps. On Tenerife and Gran Canaria we were living in apartments with kitchen and buying seefood in Mercadona. Is there any supermarket in Costa Tequise with good seafood choice? If not, where is the closest? Where to buy fresh fish?

3. A few years ago I have read that Costa Teguise is quite place with good atmosphere and had an impression that it has a soul and not pure touristic (something like Los Gigantes or Puerto Cruz on Tenerife). Now it sounds like a big tourist resort. Was I wrong and it is pure touristic?

Sorry, I haven't heard of these apartments, are they also known as Los Molinos ? If so the complex is nice and the apartments vary as they are privately own.
There are plenty of supermarkets,they may have a limited amount of fish, but, for fresh fish you need to go to Puerto-del-Carmen Port or the big supermarkets outside Arrecife. Costa Teguise used to have a produce market on Thursdays in the Puablo Marinero, not sure if it's still going.
Costa Teguise is a tourist built place, but, absolutely nothing like anywhere in Tenerife, it's all low rise and quiet in comparison. Have a great holiday.

Thanks for answer! This is not Los Molinos. There is some reviews appeared just yesterday on booking.com and they all are very recent and good, so I am a kind of relaxed on this matter.

Do I understand correctly that some small supermarkets in Costa Teguise have at least some fresh fish? Of course, I will try supermarket on outskirt of Arecife but driving there every day or even every second day just to buy two fresh fishes or a kilo shrimps would be a bit ridiculous :). On the other hand, it it is only 15-20 minutes of driving, then why not...

Also been in mainland Spain, we loved to have a lunch in places with "menu del dia". Especially in those where was no menu in English - sometimes it was a lottery, but it never was a wrong number! Is it possible to find something like this on Lanzarote, somewhere out of tourist resorts? Which time is lunch usually?

Hi,

We were In Costa Tequise two years ago and like the person above said, it's touristic, but not too touristic...

It was a great holiday, the landscape of the island is so different from most things I had seen before...It's really a good idea to rent a car and move around, see the volcanoes etc...

We did some nice hikes there too, one to a -then- deserted beach, see my off the beaten path tips for more info...

Enjoy your holiday!
Dennis

I've just checked with friends in Lanzarote,they say the no fresh fish in CT, the nearest is the Eurostar supermarket on the way to Arrecife.

Thanks a lot again. Pity that there are no fresh fish in CT but at least I will know about it in advance and can plan some fish days :)

Travel Tips for Isla de Lanzarote

dry land and wet ocean

by mocca

Lanzarote is very dry, hardly any vegetation apart from some cacti. But that does make it very interesting. You get many weird shapes of lava rocks all over the place.

On the other hand it is an island and it has beautifull beaches where you can wash off the dust with swimming, snorkling, diving, bodyboarding, surfing or whatever watersports you want to do. The waves, the beautifull big waves.

[CESAR MANRIQUE... and his masterpieces]

by pikuu

Almost everywhere you will go on Lanza you will meet the works of Cesar Manrique. His influence on island's shape and look is colossal. From elaboration of architecture rules, designing of the tourists' centres up to sculptures along the promenades and on the crossroads.

Before the travel - whan I was reading about his works - I thought that is strange and dull idea to see everywhere the works of one person. But after the trip...

It's interesting (and admirable) that the local governement was so brave to agree that one artist can design almost everything. I'm not totally pro Manriques' works (especially his logos of famous Lanza places (like Timanfaya) are not so good for me). But I see and admire how he connect the art with Lanzarote nature and with tourist short visit. Undouptedly he linked the art with everyday life, he didn't close it inside the grey walls of museums.

Maybe the Lanzarote (tribute to Manrique) should change the name for Isla de Manrique or even Manriquete :)

It's unecessery to write about his life and masterpieces. You can know about him visiting pages: Fundacion Manrique, César Manrique or Wikipedia.

I'd like to underline that my favorite Manriques' things are wind toys (In Spanish: juguetes del viento) with the most funky located on the crossroad near Tahiche. That one and other Manrique's works you can see in my special travelogue.

Canary Islands named after wild dogs

by rachel_sun

I always thought the Canary Islands were named after birds and how wrong i was.They are named after wild dogs.The Latin word Canis means dog.You may still see a breed of dog today from many many years ago with white paws .I saw many dogs around on my visit.Lanzarote is a good place to bird watch too.There are many unique birds including houbara bustard,cream coloured courser, black bellied sandgrouse.These breeds of birds love Lanzarote's dry climate.They thrive here and are rare elsewhere so its worth coming to see them in Lanzarote. There is also a beautiful bird called a trumpeter finch.It has a short red beak and has a funny call.

And as Lanzarote is dry a film was made here with Raquel Welsh in called "One Million Years Bc".You know the one with her fluufy bikini and dinasours etc,lol. A cool movie ;-)

Kissing Camels

by lomi

The kissing camels got their name from pursing their lips at visitors, as they are attracted by the smell of perfume and tobacco.

Don’t worry, due to health and safety issues the camels in the National Park now have to wear a muzzle. Only 200 of the 350 camels that live on the island, are allowed to work. They work from 6 am to 4pm every day, starting with a one and half hour walk from their stables in Uga to the edge of the Timanfaya National Park. A camel herder will be in charge of 6 camels (or caravan) at a time, which will carry twelve people around the volcano. Each caravan will make about 4 trips every day before returning to their stables. When they have been fed and watered, the camels sleep for 10 hours. The remainder of the camels are either too young, old or sick to work.

The camels in Lanzarote have only one hump and are the descendants of the original camels brought the island at the start of the conquest of Lanzarote in 1402. They were used for ploughing the land and carrying crops. In their heyday, 5,000 camels were used in agriculture. In the early 19th century, visitors to the island could expect to be transported around on camel or donkey.

Did you know that in extreme conditions camels can go without water for 7-8 days, and can drink up to 100 litres of water in 10 minutes?

eating and drinking in Spanish bars/restaurants

by lomi

In Spain generally and Lanzarote in particular sit down somewhere in a cafe bar or restaurant that takes your fancy. Allow the waiter to come over to you. There is no need to lean on the bar and wait to get served, and get in the way of everyone. Sit down. Learn the art of relaxation!

Remember in Spain we pay for our food and drink after the meal.

So chill out, relax, sit down, and learn to wait with joy and pleasure... everyone local can't understand the English impatience... Why does everything have to be so efficient? The waiter (camerero) will get to you as soon as he can ... or, if its a woman she is a camerera; they will bring you your order, even if it is only a coffee or a bottle of water. Then when you've finished ask for the bill ("la cuenta por favour").

You may not be used to this method of paying for your drinks, ie paying after you have had a drink, but thats how it is here... its friendly, its trusting... And hey dont even think of trying to do a runner! And if you are ordering 'rounds' that's ok too, because if you pay at the end, everyone shares the whole bill...Easy...No one gets stuck with paying for the round when everyone starts drinking spirits.

Leave a good tip if the service has been good, if it hasn't, then don't leave anything. This is not particularly a tipping culture, no one will be offended.

In Restaurants it is normal to leave the loose change but it is not assumed that you will leave a tip at all and it certainly isn't expected that you pay up to 15%.
