Mini guide to Puerto Del Carmen
Puerto Del Carmen
To put it simply, there's no need for a culture buff to look beyond the traditions that rule the roost at Puerto Del Carmen. It's because the Canary Islanders still have their customs going; thanks to the group who had been generous enough to hand the traditions down over the ages to their subsequent generations.
If you dreamt about a time paradox so far, then this is the place where you should be. Every village at Puerto Del Carmen oozes the flavour of yore and links to the preceding times when this land was in a constant battle against the elements of nature. These are also the factors that gave rise to the religious beliefs of the residents; a look at the traditional rituals, the folklores and the festivities shall reveal that. Moreover, to keep the tradition alive, the Escuela Municipal de Folclore was founded, which serves for a tourist attraction as well.
But it's not a norm that you need to be into culture and history for being here; it is very much meant as well for the person urban at heart. There are peaceful, long and wide beaches to relax on after a hectic day at the shopping centres. Luxury finds its niche here through accommodation with many stylish, well looked after hotels and resorts. There are restaurants for the person with insatiable taste buds and many shops to browse through. All in all, a 10 minutes drive from the Lanzarote airport shall land you up in an abode of clear waters, leisure and fun.
