Travel Information

FUERTEVENTURA

Fuerteventura is around 100km in length and ranges in width from about 5km to 30km. This relatively small size means that it is possible to comfortably visit anywhere on the island and return to your base in the same day.


BUSES OR GUAGUAS
There are some sixteen different bus routes on the island. The buses run to time and are an excellent way to get around the island. It takes about 20 minutes to travel by bus from Caleta de Fuste to Puerto del Rosario, and the travel time from Puerto del Rosario to Corralejo is around 40 minutes.

If you travel around on buses quite often you can get a discount card, which costs 12 euro. This gives you 10% off each journey. You put it into a machine behind the driver and tell the driver where you are going. If there is not enough in your ticket then you have to pay the rest in cash. You cannot use two tickets for one journey. You can buy these at the kiosk opposite the bus station in Puerto, or from the driver.


TAXIS
Taxis are quite cheap on the island, but you must remember that you cannot order them in advance, nor can the taxi's pick up passengers outside their own area, e.g. a Puerto taxi cannot pick up in Caleta. From Fuerteventura airport a taxi to Costa Calma will cost 66 euro, to Corralejo 40 euro, El Cotillo 45 and around 10 will take you to Costa Antigua or Costa Caleta. Taxis will carry 4 people; there is a people carrier available. These prices were correct at 22nd February 2009.

TAVEL BY CAR
The roads linking the main population centres on the island are generally of a high quality. Some of them, such as that from Costa Antigua to the town of Antigua are very new and do not appear on most maps.

The island probably has more miles of tracks than tarmac surfaces. It is possible to negotiate a lot of them with care, but if you have taken the car hire option, then you should be aware that your insurance may not be valid if you are anywhere other than on a "proper" road.


CAMELS
When the first intrepid tourists arrived on the island, going to Corralejo involved a six hour camel ride. In Caleta there are couple of camels that will take you there and back! You can also ride a camel at the La Lajita zoo.


HIRING A CAR
The main roads around Fuerteventura are of a high standard, but to getting to the more secluded beaches involve driving down tracks. It is probably best to hire a four wheel drive vehicle. If using a hire car, you may not be insured off road, so it's best to check the terms and conditions of your car hire company.
