Local transport from airport


We'll be arriving in Fuertaventura Sat 26th November (leaving Dec 10th), can anyone give us any tips about getting buses from the airport.

It's our first visit to Fuertaventura / El Cotillo so any other local knowledge would be really appreciated, it looks like a stunning island and we're really looking forward to our 2 week stay.

Many thanks in advance.

There is no direct bus to El Cotillo. You would need to catch a bus to Puerto Del Rosario bus station (bus 3 or 10) and then change onto bus 7 to El Cotillo. However there are only 3 buses a day.

Other options are Taxis (likely expensive), hire car or resort hoopa (https:/…fuerteventura-el-matorral-airport) shared mini bus. This would likely be circa 20 euros each way (you would have to pre book this).

You can also get there during the day via Corralejo, the bus link is shown below.


Doing the journey on the bus depends on your flight times in and out, otherwise you could be looking at an expensive taxi, I hope it works out for you.

Or check ziptransfers for a return quote.

Failing that it's cheap as chips and easy peasy to drive to El Cotillo from the airport.

If you drive look at YouTube clips of driving on Fuerteventura.

Payless.es or Cicar.com

Avoid Goldcar whatever you do.

by far the best way is to hire a car at the airport from cicar or payless. Avoid goldcar. Not a good company. Avoid also Autoreisen which is a good comany but you will probably queue for an hour at airport.

Taxi will get you there in 45 minutes but will cost around 50-55 euros. Using the No3+6+8 bus will take a while but there's no walking at all needed and seats available at each changeover. Luggage goes in a special compartment.. That will certainly be less than 10€pp maybe €8.
