Is There A Market For An English Language Daily "Newspaper" In Lanzarote?

I was talking to a friend who is a local businessman the other day. He was telling me how frustrated he is that he can’t keep up with local news on the island, and that he gets lost in trying to understand the local Spanish newspapers. He’s convinced there’s a market in Lanzarote for an English language daily newspaper, aimed at English speaking people who live here or own property on the island.

Beware The Holiday Villa Scam!

We heard a terrible story from a reader this week, and it’s one we’ve come across before.

Scam

A family from the UK found a villa on a website where you can book accommodation directly with holiday home owners. They conversed via email, had all their questions answered and paid the £2,000 to book their holiday. They emailed again last week to check the arrangements for collecting their keys, and heard nothing back. Eventually, they decided to telephone the owner, who then told them there had been no booking.  read more »

Arriving At Arrecife Airport, Lanzarote

Here’s what to expect when you arrive at the airport for the first time, and where to go once you’ve collected your luggage.

Airport

Approach and Landing

Generally, aircraft land from the ocean, so you’ll fly to the left of Arrecife, then turn and come in right over the beach – sit on the left of the aircraft for the best views. Occasionally, if the wind is “wrong” you’ll come in over the mountains, which is interesting, and you’ll fly over a main road just before touch down!

Most of the time, the aircraft will dock with an airway, but if the airport is really busy, a bus will come out to the apron for the aircraft which have been double parked.

Airport m2

Passport Control

Have your passport ready as you get off the plane, and you’ll have a short walk through corridors to passport control. It’s not always manned, but if it is, you’ll find the Guardia Civil officer will give a cursory glance at your passport.  read more »
