Top tips please

Hi.

We are a family of 5 heading out to Lanzarote at the end of the month. We are staying in Los Mojones, Puerto del Carmen. Could you please give me some tips on where the best places to eat are, what trips we should do. Any must see places on the island not to be missed.

Is it relatively cheap to eat out. What prices should I except to pay for food and drink.

Also is it worth hiring a car while there.

Thank you so much.

Car hire is usually great value. Have a look at Auto Reisen, Plus Car, Cabrera Medina and Lanzarote Information. They'll give you an all in price. Make sure you avoid Gold Car who can advertise to be the cheapest but charge extra for absolutely everything.

Must sees - in the North of the island look up Mirador del Rio, Jameos del Agua, small villages like Arrieta. Google Maps on your smartphone works like a sat nav in your car.

In Los Mojones you are close to the harbour end (old town) of Puerto del Carmen. Market day is Friday in the harbour car park. Lovely tapas at La Taberna de Nino in overlooking the harbour area.

Hiring a car is definately worth doing, it's good value and the island is easy to get around.

The following links are some of the places in the south of the island that maybe of interest.

Papagayo beaches.

There also Timanfaya National Park for the volcanoes and camel rides.

It's a wonderfully island, hope you enjoy it wherever you end up going.

Car hire is useful and cheap, from a good local firm like Cabrera Medina who include zero excess no worries insurance as standard.
