driving instructions Arrecife Airport to Charco del Palo, lanzarote
Once you have your car, the first thing to check is do you have enough fuel?? If a quarter full then you will be fine but if you need fuel then there is a garage within the airport on your way out. When leaving the airport you are looking for signs to Arrecife take the slip road onto a dual carriageway. Once you have driven past the Deiland shopping centre on your right, up ahead you will see a sign above the road, saying Arrecife straight on or Circunvalacion going left, take this road. As soon as you see this sign get into the outside/fast lane and stay there. Ok so now you are on the Circunvalacion/Autovia, this is a very new road and very easy to navigate, above you look out for signs Orzola LZ1 its as easy as that. After around 4kms you will branch off right signposted Orzola, Tahiche and Arrecife, take this slip road and as you arrive at the roundabout your route takes you left back under the new road to another roundabout, then its straight on. Now its all roundabouts, go straight over the first three and when arriving at the 4th branch off right towards Orzola LZ1 At the next small roundabout go straight over. Continue past the Costa Teguise junction Soon you are heading downhill where you will see a garage and the slip road and signs for Guatiza and the Jardin de Cactus, take this. When you get into Guatiza unless its very late there is a Supermarket on the right which should be open if you want to pick up anything. Continue through Guatiza passing the large Cactus and shortly you will come into the village of Mala. When you see the Red Cross sign start to indicate right, after 50mtrs take the road sign posted Charco del Palo which passes between the Don Quijote and Arepera Restaurants and just follow this narrow and very bendy road. Dropping down into the village you will see the La Tunera restaurant in front of you, just drive past it, turn off right and immediately on your right is the Centro Commercial with the village supermarket.
