Where can I print my boarding pass in Lanzarote? Is just one of the many questions we get asked on a daily basis, so we thought we’d publish details of the places that we are aware of, who offer this printing service in one of the holiday resorts on the island.
We’ve found a selection of local bars and book shops who are more than happy to print off boarding cards / passes, if you buy a drink in return, or pay a small fee to cover the cost of printing.
Puerto del Carmen:
Academia LILS, C.C. Costa Luz, Avenida Las Playas
Arthur’s Bar, C.C. Maritimo, Avenida de las Playas 49

Many people who fall in love with Lanzarote often end up buying a property here – either as a holiday home, or in some cases as their primary residence.
Buying a property in Lanzarote shouldn’t be difficult, but it is different to the process in many other European countries, so we’ve listed the steps below, with pointers on each, so that you should know what to expect.
Assuming you haven’t already arranged financing in your home country, then the banks here are beginning to lend money for mortgages again, but they are pretty cautious about that lending, so we’d recommend a visit to a local bank before you start house hunting in earnest. They will tell you what terms you can expect, and what paperwork you will need to provide. The amount they will lend here is based very much on the value of the property, not the selling price, so at the early stages they will only be able to give you a very general idea of how much you are likely to be able to borrow. read more »

Dale Mullineaux was due to return home from a holiday in Lanzarote on the 17th of June, his family have not heard from him since and are extremely worried.
We’ve been contacted by Jodie, a friend of the family who explained that Dale was staying at Club Siroco in Costa Teguise whilst on holiday with his girlfriend. After an argument, his girlfriend checked into a different hotel and took an early flight home, leaving Dale with his passport and boarding card.
Dale’s son, also called Dale and his daughter, Sarah understand that the hotel called for an ambulance as their father was very drunk and believe that he was admitted to the general hospital Doctor José Molina Orosa. The hospital will not confirm to the family when Dale was discharged, due to patient confidentiality, a member of staff from the hotel had delivered his personal belongings to Dale at the hospital.
Their dad was due to fly back to Manchester on a Monarch flight on the 17th of June, they don’t know if he caught that flight, so Dale could be missing in Lanzarote or back in the UK. The British police have read more »
The Lanzarote Active Club have a few places left on their special boat excursion on Friday 8th August to discover the marine reserve in the north of Lanzarote.
The island of Alegranza is privately owned, so special permission is required from the owner before you can visit. That’s why excursions here are limited and one of the reasons you should take the opportunity when there’s a chance of a trip. This is a full day excursion with the Lanzarote Active Club and it’s one of my all time favourites.
The day starts with a transfer from your accommodation to the harbour in Órzola, where the group departs on a boat for the island of Alegranza. On previous trips we’ve seen flying fish, Cory’s Shearwaters, turtles and on a very special occasion a pod of pilot whales actually came right up to the boat. Alegranza is a bird sanctuary, Eleanora’s Falcons migrate from Madagascar to nest here from March to November, ospreys and Egyptian vultures are also in residence on the island.
It’s normally possible to visit the the volcanic cave known as El Jameito, passengers can opt to swim through this brightly coloured sea cave to the jameo or take a small boat trip if the sea conditions permit.
After some time bird watching and swimming the boat read more »
