A travel journal
to Lanzarote by I am Matt
Quote: As I have grown up, I have often been on family holidays to the beautiful island of Lanzarote. I will endeavour to discuss all the attractions I have visited in the hope making your trip as enjoyable as mine have been. :)
The rapidly growing town of Playa Blanca is also a must -- the natural white sand town beach is small but beautiful.
I also recommend the museum of Cesar Manrique near Arricefe, a truly magnificant architectural splendour filled with the works of a great artist.
Taxis aren't expensive, but beware because their driving can sometimes cause mild panic attacks.
By far the best way to get around is by rental car, as rental prices and petrol are relatively cheap. There are many outlets with a wide range of vehicles, the largest chain, and that which I recommend, is Cabrera Medina.
Cycling is a possibility, but the terrain can be demanding.

Teguise, Lanzarote, Spain
The visitor center is located in the volcanic plains and has a great deal of information about the area and general geology/vulcanology, so it's great for learning about the area. Access to the summit is controlled by a toll point, but the visitor center is free.
The National Park is easily accessible from anywhere on the island as only one road goes through it to control the human impact on the landscape.
