Choosing Lanzarote Hotels for My Next Trip Over the course of the last three days, as soon as I've finished my classes at college, I've headed straight home to sit down in front of my computer to surf the internet, searching for information on Lanzarote and in particular, its hotels.
My good friend Robert, who studies with me at college has convinced me to go to Lanzarote next summer. Robert is the grandson of an emigrant Lanzaroteño who came to live in the USA 70 years' ago. After I listened to all the histories of the island, I've begun my search on the internet for information on the island, together with details of is Lanzarote hotels .
Robert's grandfather has spent his life telling him of the beauty of this island, of its traditions, its lunar landscapes and beaches. He's also spoken to him about the destruction which was caused by the last volcanic eruption back in 1730 and the difficult economic conditions that the Lanzarote islanders were coping with when his family decided to emigrate.
I know for a fact that the Lanzarote of today is quite different. The island has a formidable tourist industry with more than 2 million tourists flooding annually into its numerous hotels. Our problem now is deciding exactly where to stay in Lanzarote, as there are more than 200 hotels dotted across the island.
Prior to actually choosing our hotel, we discussed the location. Robert's argument was that we should stay in a hotel in Costa Teguise, as his great-grandfather came from the actual village of Teguise and he was hoping to find some of his family there. I preferred a hotel in Playa Blanca, as this would be nearer the Timanfaya National Park, which is the main attraction on the island. Luckily, at CheapLanzaroteHotels.com, we found an excellent Lanzarote map which helped us immensely.
In the end, we've decided to stay in Puerto del Carmen. Puerto del Carmen is situated in the centre of Lanzarote and there are a wide variety of hotels to choose from. It will also be easier to explore the whole island from this base.
Now I'm just counting down the days until I get to Lanzarote.
