Lanzarote a Caballo y Camelo is a great place to spend a couple of hours or much longer, depending on what you want to do. You can ride, take riding lessons, or younger visitors can be led on horses and ponies, as well as camels.

 

The centre has a small donkey sanctuary and visitors are offered the chance to sponsor an animal if they wish.

 

The space is ideal for kids. There is a large playground called the Alamo, bouncy castle and buggy rides can be organised for parties. The restaurant and bar is large and specialises in barbeques.




Timanfaya National Park

Timanfaya was declared a national park in 1974, and this was given legal status in 1981. It is registered as an area of valuable ecological significance, and is well worth a half day visit.




Mirador del Rio



Quite simply - one of the best, if not THE best, views in the whole of the Canary Islands.  Not to be missed.




Cueva de Los Verdes (The Green Caves)

La Cueva de los Verdes is very close to los Jameos del Agua, so it's quite a good idea to plan to do both on the same day, if you're travelling from another part of the island.

It is a truly incredible piece or natural architecture, formed by the eruption of the volcano Monte de la Corona some five thousand years ago. It is also one of the longest volcanic galleries in the world (6 km long).

 

During the 17th century the caves were used by locals to hide from Pirates and slave hunters.

Location: near the town of Haría.

The connection between Texas and Lanzarote is not as odd as you might expect. In the 1700s many canarians emigrated to the states and a group of Lanzoroteans created the town of San Antonio in Texas.

Lanzarote's little slice of Texas offers a great day out for families, and some great nights out too.

During the day you can enjoy a variety of shows including parrots, birds of prey, sealions and aligators.   However the list of animals to visit is far greater and includes wild cats, reptiles, bison and many more.
On site facilities include a restaurant and picnic areas.

There are discounts for residents,  children's parties are catered for, and there are evening shows as well.
