From the Terminal 1 top floor car park at Arrecife Airport in Lanzarote, make sure that your car park ticket is validated and paid before driving to the barrier. Approach the barrier slowly so that the car registration number can be read, then insert your ticket into the machine and the barrier will lift to allow you to exit.
Look to your right to make sure both lanes of traffic are free before exiting and as you go around the first corner move to the right hand lane for Arrecife / Yaiza/ T2, continue on this road staying in the right hand lane, the next sign is Todas Direcciones / T2. The road then splits left or right, you want the right hand lane marked Ciudad / T2 which will take you to a roundabout for Terminal 2.
Stay in the outside lane, ignore the exit for the petrol station, T2 and the cargo centre looking out for the exit marked Arrecife / Yaiza. You have to be ready at this point as to which direction you want, the signpost says Pto del Carmen / Tias / Yaiza which is straight on and Arrecife which is an immediate turn right.
For Costa Teguise follow for Arrecife, turning right onto the slip way.
Caution now! Traffic will not give way to you, you must wait for a gap in the oncoming traffic before accelerating to leave the slip way. You are joining a dual carriageway (LZ-2) towards Arrecife and the traffic is travelling at speeds up to 100 km per hour.
Once you have joined the traffic you will pass the Deiland shopping centre on your right, just up from here is the only fixed speed camera on the island. Look ahead, where you can see the petrol station on the right you need to be in the left hand lane as the road splits off to the Circunvalación (LZ-3) Arrecife ring road. Take this turning left onto the Circunvalación.
Stay on this road, each junction has two exits, keep following for Pto Los Mármoles (port) past two junctions then you will see a petrol station on each side of the road and Ikea is now visible on the right.
Again take caution, this is a dangerous junction and you must stop where indicated.
Take the left hand turning and far left hand lane, stop at the sign. Traffic is coming towards you from your right, when the road is clear accelerate to join the dual carriageway into the resort of Costa Teguise.
If you miss this left turning, just continue towards Pto Los Mármoles, you can either turn around at the roundabout or continue on as this is the old coast road and connects with Costa Teguise too.
You’ve arrived at the resort of Costa Teguise, now you just need to find your accommodation! You can download a street map of Costa Teguise here: Lanzarote Map
