Which Lanzarote Resort Should I Stay In?

“I am coming to Lanzarote for the first time – which resort should I stay in?”

This is a question I am asked a lot, each of the three resorts in Lanzarote are very different from each other. It’s hard to know where to start as all the resorts are loved by the full range of visitors from teenagers, families, couples, sports enthusiasts and pensioners.

Puerto del Carmen

This book is a great guide to Puerto del Carmen: The Camel Guide to Puerto del Carmen and Tias

Playa Grande in Puerto del Carmen Puerto del Carmen is Lanzarote’s original resort and closest to Arrecife Airport. What started out life as a small fishing village called La Tiñosa now stretches for 6km along the coast with natural golden sandy beaches.

Puerto del Carmen is probably best known for it’s lively nightlife, just ask for Centro Atlantico which is situated on the main avenida opposite Playa Grande for a plethora of pubs, nightclubs, disco pubs etc.  Don’t let this put you off though, there is much more to this resort than dancing the night away.

You will always find sports enthusiasts swimming, running or cycling along “The Strip”  read more »

Spanish Bank Account Blocked

If your Spanish bank doesn’t have a digital copy of your identification on file, your bank account is likely to be blocked from the 1st May 2015.


You may have noticed the queues lengthening in the local banks recently as worried residents pop into their branches to check if they will be affected by this legislation. The deadline for banks to collect and digitalise current identification documents for all account holders is the 30th April 2015.

This is all part of the money laundering legislation Ley 10/2010 de 28 abril which was introduced back in 2010, lenders had five years in which to contact their clients and request an up to date copy of their identification documents. For company bank accounts additional paperwork is required regarding your commercial activities to prove you are not funding terrorism or money laundering.

This situation is a potential problem for any non-residents with a Spanish bank account who aren’t due to visit Spain within the next three months and  read more »
