We book people’s holidays to Lanzarote every day of the week, and it gives us a lot of insight into the people who come to visit the island. One surprising thing is how many of you come back time and time again, sometimes several times a year.
We call you our “Lanzarote experts.”
We thought we’d take a slightly tongue-in-cheek look at what sets our experts apart from our occasional visitors.
Are you a Lanzarote Expert?
1/ Do you ignore the guy beckoning you to park in the first car park at Teguise market to save yourself a long walk?
2/ Do you order cañas (halves) not jarras (pints) of beer because you know pints get warm too quickly in our hot weather?
3/ Do you know that steaks are generally cooked more rare here, so a medio hecho (medium) is like a rare at home, and a bien hecho (well done) is like a medium?
4/ Do you buy your duty free in resort, rather than at the airport, so you save a packet?
5/ Do you go for the shaded table in the restaurant, rather than trying to eat in the full sun?
6/ Do you book an airport car hire or take a taxi, so you arrive at your accommodation before the main crowd?
7/ Can say hello and good-bye and can you ask for your bill in Spanish?
What’s your score?
0-3 You need to come here more often!
4-5 Not bad, you’re a Lanzarote Lover all right!
6-7 You’re a Lanzarote expert! Wear your badge with pride!
