Taxi in Fuerteventura – prices, phone numbers

Traveling by taxi is fairly convenient in Fuerteventura. Taxi operators practice low rates, which is a strong plus for using this kind of transport. Yes taking a cab in Fuerteventura is pretty cheap.

One thing you should keep in mind is cabs operate in a municipal system, meaning that a taxi pertaining to a certain municipality will not pick up clients wanting to travel to a municipality other than the one assigned to it. Taxis are also available at Fuerteventura Airport.  The taxi rank is right outside of the Fuerteventura airport building and it cost 12 Euros into Caleta de Fuste and about 50 Euros to Corralejo or El Cotillo. To take a cab down south to Playa Jandia would cost you about 100 Euros. You’ll find the full list bellow.

The taxis are metered. Even that it is always a worth to ask for an estimated price before you take the cab to avoid a nasty surprise.

Fuerteventura is a popular island with UK tourists and the majority of taxi drivers can speak at least a bit of English. It is always handy to have the destination address written down on piece of paper, especially if you are going to some remote resort, anyway. The more information you’ll pass to the driver the faster you can be there.

Taxi alternatives

Even using the taxi in Fuerteventura is really cheap, compare to the UK prices, there is always a cheaper alternative to get around the island. The cheapest option is taking the bus or to book a tourist transfer. You have to consider the waiting for the bus or couch and most of the time the bus will stop few times before you’ll reach your holiday resort.

Another, and I would say the best, alternative to taxi is a car hire. You’ll be able to go wherever – whenever. You won’t be tied with time tables or limited to the number of bus stops. Getting the car in airport will take you only few minutes (most of the times) and you’ll be able to see places you want to see whiting your own time schedule. It will of course cost more than couch but less than a cab. The choice is yours.

Tuineje

The municipality of Tuineje, founded in 1872, covers an area of 276 square kilometres (about 105 square miles), making Tuineje the fourth largest municipality in the island. Thanks to its location, in the southeast of Fuerteventura, it enjoys a benign, cool climate that makes it possible to use the municipality’s resources the whole year round. These resources, together with the area’s cultural attractions and the traditional lifestyle of its inhabitants make this municipality the ideal destination for lovers of nature and ancient customs. The main centres of population are Gran Tarajal, Tarajalejo, Tesejerague and Tuineje.

Tuinejes’ economy is based on tomato agriculture and forage (first island producer) and livestock (goat meat and cheese ). It also has a relevant role the tourism sector. Highlights include the beaches of Gran Tarajal, Tarajalejo, Giniginamar and Las Playitas.

People began to settle in Tuineje shortly after the conquest, including a significant number of Moors.
In 1779 Tuineje became a parish, independent from Betancuria, and at the beginning of the 19th century the Town Council was created, following the abolition of the feudal estates.

 

History of Tuineje

Tuineje used to be dependant on the municipality of Betancuria until the late eighteenth century. It became a municipality in 1872 thanks to the Cortes of Cadiz. In 1740, during the Anglo-Spanish war, English pirates landed in the village for looting. But despite their disadvantage in weapons, the natives achieve a victory over the invaders. Months later the events replayed with the same result. This battle is known as the Battle of Tamasite or Llano Florido. This victory of natives is commemorated every 13 October with a re-enactment the events.

Today the municipality comprises the villages of Tuineje, Gran Tarajal, Tiscamanita, Las Playitas, Tesejerague, Tarajalejo, Giniginamar, Las Casitas, Juan Gopar and Tequital, all of which contain significant exponents of popular and traditional architecture.
