If you're planning on going on holiday to Lanzarote this summer make sure you visit the attractive city of Costa Teguise – it's one of the three major tourist towns on the island. Bastian beach is ideal for families with small children while Cucharas beach is a well known spot for windsurfers. There's an evening market held every Friday in the quaint Pueblo Marinero that's well worth a browse. For music lovers the Costa Music Festival happens every September or there's the Brazilian Music Festival in June. You'll be spoilt for choice!
A huge variety of direct flights to Costa Teguise are on offer from most UK airports with flights landing at Lanzarote Airport - the only airport on the island. Ryanair, easyJet, Thomson Flights and Flytomascook are just a few of the airlines who offer direct flights – make sure you shop around to ensure that you get the cheapest deal. Lanzarote Airport is located five kilometres away from the capital of Arrecife. To get to your Costa Teguise hotel you can either get a taxi from the airport or you can catch the local bus to Arrecife and from there you can get a bus or take a taxi to Costa Teguise.
Car hire is one of the best ways to see the beauty of Costa Teguise. It's possible to get a great bargain if you book well in advance on the internet rather than hire a car when you arrive at the airport.
Costa Teguise offers a wide range of different accommodations to suit every budget. But if your budget won't quite stretch to an all-inclusive five star resort it's still possible to find a good quality cheap hotel in Costa Teguise if you book well in advance. Lanzarote has a great climate all year round so it doesn't matter too much if you go during the off-peak season. Just be aware that you may experience slight rainfall between October and April. School holidays can be one of the most expensive times to take a holiday in Costa Teguise.
If you visit the market make sure you have fun haggling! You may be given an inflated initial asking price but don't accept it instead try and haggle with the vendors – you'd be surprised at what you'll eventually pay! The market is the perfect place to buy some souvenirs to take home.
If you're looking to eat out in the evening try to stay away from the typically tourists restaurants and instead hunt down some traditional eateries down the side roads. You be able to sample the local food at a much lower price. Make sure you try the different mojos (sauce) – they come in a variety of flavours. Mojo picón is the spiciest so make sure you stay away from this if you don't like hot food!
