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.

La Oliva

Located in the north of Fuerteventura, the municipality of La Oliva, which includes the Lobos Isle, has an extension of 356.13 square kilometres (about 137 square miles) what is 21.5% of the total area of Fuerteventura. It is the second largest municipality in the Canary Islands, after Pajara.

In this municipality there are two parks, the Natural Park of Corralejo, including its unique dunes, and the Natural Park of the islote de Lobos, comprising the island of Lobos in its entirety, which belongs to La Oliva administratively. The Esmeralda Mountain, one of the main rock art sites of the island, was considered magical by the Guanches. It comprises the capital – La Oliva, and the villages of Tindaya, Vallebron, Villaverde, La Caldereta, Los Lajares, Toston or El Cotillo, El Roque, Corralejo and Parque Holandes, as well as the recently consolidated La Capellania, between Villaverde and Corralejo, and not forgetting the Lobos.
Among the numerous attractions in the municipality, its natural areas are not to be missed, such as Tindaya Mountain, a singular landscape containing important archaeological and geological elements, or Corralejo Natural Park, with its spectacular dunes. Lobos Park is home to around 130 animal and vegetable species that inhabit a landscape practically untouched by man, and Malpais de la Arena, declared a Natural Monument, has its origins in volcanic eruptions that occurred around ten thousand years ago, producing a landscape of great beauty. Finally, the Protected Area of Vallebron conserves man-made structures designed for farming the land located in the midst of a fertile valley.

The vegetation of La Oliva is characterized by thorny bushes (such as gorse or matamoros). Highlights of this municipality  include the beaches of El Cotillo and Corralejo which has allowed tourism development in the municipality. The necessary conditions exist on its shores for the practice of sports like surf, windsurfing, diving, etc.

The exponent, par excellence, of civil architecture in the municipality is the building known as Casa de los Coroneles (House of the Colonels). It was built in the second half of the 17th century by the Cabrera Bethencourt family, though its most significant extensions and reforms were carried out in the 18th century. The Casa de los Coroneles constitutes one of the most important domestic architecture structures to be found in the whole of the Canary Islands. Due to its complex functions in the immediately surrounding area and throughout the island, it became the centre of power in administrative, military, economic and social, etc. circles and it is, therefore, also a reflection of the geo-political changes that took place in the island, with the decline of Betancuria and the rise in importance of La Oliva.

The territorial limits of the municipality have not changed significantly throughout its history, as these are based on the ecclesiastical demarcation carried out during the 18th century.

In 1837, with the abolition of the feudal estates, the island was incorporated in the Spanish Crown and in that same decade, with the restructuring of Spanish territory in municipalities, the Town Council and municipality of La Oliva were created.
