The airport serves a variety of airlines, including low-cost carriers like Ryanair and EasyJet. Once you arrive, you can rent a car, take a taxi, or use public buses to reach your accommodation.

Booking in advance is essential for some of the island's top attractions, such as Timanfaya National Park and Cueva de los Verdes. Purchasing a Lanzarote Experience Card can provide discounted entry to multiple sites and save you time when visiting popular spots.

The costs of a trip to Lanzarote can vary depending on your preferences. Budget travelers can find affordable accommodations and meals, while those looking for a luxury experience will also find high-end resorts and restaurants. On average, expect to spend around €60-€100 per day on food, activities, and accommodations.

Some of the best things to do in Lanzarote include exploring Timanfaya National Park, visiting the César Manrique Foundation, and relaxing on the white-sand beaches of Papagayo. For a unique experience, consider a guided tour of the volcanic vineyards of La Geria or a submarine dive to explore the underwater world.

For dining options, Restaurante El Risco in Famara is a great choice for fresh seafood and local dishes. Casa Tere in Arrecife offers delicious Canarian cuisine in a charming setting, while La Bodega de Santiago in Yaiza is perfect for a romantic dinner with a focus on creative fusion dishes.

For an unusual travel experience in Lanzarote, consider a visit to the secluded and peaceful village of Haría.
