Carnival Lanzarote - Insider Tips

We’re well into carnival season now here on the island, and we thought it would be good to share some insider tips for those of you who are going to be on the island to enjoy a crazy time!

Carnival 1  Carnnival 2

Don’t watch – get stuck in!

Everyone is welcome to join the procession, so don’t just sit there taking photos – join in with the party and do the carnival shuffle while you make some new friends. Fancy dress isn’t compulsory, but why wouldn’t you wear it? Inexpensive costumes can be bought from many shops on the island, and there’s no need to follow the official theme.  read more »

A Reader Writes - A Different Kind Of Lanzarote Holiday

One of our regular readers asked me if she could write about her recent holiday to the island, and of course we agreed! As you’ll see, it was a different sort of holiday to most, as the family spent their time exploring some of the less visited parts of the island, and they even stayed in three different locations while they were here.
