Viceconsejero de Turismo del Gobierno de Canarias, Ricardo Fernández de la Puente Armas commented that this slogan applies to all of us including employees working in hotels & restaurants, medical professionals in the health service, police, taxi drivers etc. “it is a motto that literally expresses the fact that the work we do every day and our professionalism is what makes our archipelago one of the most popular for tourism, because we all contribute our bit”.

Lanzarote Weather, December 2014

It was a mixed month of weather for Lanzarote during the month of December.

Christmas morning on Playa Las Cucharas in Costa Teguise

We had some stunning beach days interspersed through the month and the weather didn’t disappoint for Christmas Day again this year. At this time of year in Lanzarote you should expect a cloudy start, with the sun breaking through mid morning and a chance of a shower during the day. With most days reaching a top temperature of 20-23 degrees, it's still warm enough to enjoy lazing on a sun lounger and working on your tan. An east wind brought two calimas in quick succession, the first just before Christmas and the second a week later in time for New Year.
