I am a 64 year old widowed female hoping to retire in Lanzarote. I am thinking of Playa Blanca but feel the lighthouse area wouldn't be right for me-so possibly Playa Dorada, Rubicon area
Rather worried about the possible Oil Rig situation.
Looking at Detached properties that would also accommodate Son his Wife plus 2& 5 year old boys for visits.
Love the beach so want to be within walking distance to beach :-)
Hi I am going to be staying in playa Blanca in sept. for a four day weekend and I was wondering which exact route on the bus do I take to go to puerto del Carmen,arrecife, and costa teguise to explore the area and enjoy the nightlife?

I have been to Puerto many times and its my Favourate eurpean destination . The place has got a lot quieter over the years, which is a shame. I am going back in October(3Rd time this year). I usually go in March/ April time but this is the first time in october, is it usually busy this time of year .I notices that The show bar Flanigans was closed last time i went and the Bloke(Who addresses himself as the 3rd Marquis of Barnsley) was doing his act in titos some nights.Is he still there or hopefully he's back in flanigans showbar with Rita . A bar we used to go was caesars disco(Near Titos but again this was shut in April) will this place be open in October. There's the showbar other end of the strip near the owl and the pussy cat bar can not remember its name . We always go in ruta 66 and Murphys bar best two bars here.
Six of us will be arriving via cruise ship and wondering if anyone can recommend a guide that would have a van large enough for the six of us.
Trying to decide if one might be available at the cruise port or should we just rent a big enough car and go it alone?
Thanks for any help!
I would be flighting to the island at the end of the month... i was just wondering what kind of clothes to pack???...can wait to be there.....
Any thoughts on a preference of where to base ourselves - Arrecife or Puerto del Carmen ?
Also, is the bus service from these resorts a good way to get around and explore the places previously recommended? We probably wont be hiring a car.

We are staying in Puerto del Carmen in 2 weeks. My son (3 years) cannot eat gluten.
Does anyone know if there any gluten-free restaurants are available?
Thnx very much
I'm thinking of staying in Puerto del Carmen over the Christmas period, but a friend has heard that the town is not what is was a few years ago and thinks it will be very quiet at night, with not many people out and a lot of places closed. We are 4 middle aged guys who aren't clubbers but like to travel between good and busy pubs and bars.
I visited there 13 years ago in 96 and quite liked it then, so can anyone tell me if it has changed a lot.
Coming to costa Teguise in Jan. My partner cannot eat lactose (milk products) or gluten, but would be happy with seafood, or a decent steak and chips - though would really prefer to try local food if not cooked with butter/milk/wheat ...and to complicate things further i am vegetarian!
We're staying self catering, but would like to have a few meals out.. any recomendations greatefully received!!
