Arriving in Fuerteventura
The best advice for anyone coming to the island is to travel light.   
Between late November and April you'll probably need a sweater and light trousers for evenings, and possibly the odd rare cloudy day and of course your swimwear. But any other time of year you only really need the bare essentials such as shorts and T shirts as its so hot!

Dress is very casual here so don't worry too much. You're on holiday - chill out!

If you're a 'tea freak' then bring your own as good quality English tea is hard to come by. Branston Pickle and "english" sausages are also unavailable.
Apart from that virtually everything else is, so don't weigh yourself down with unnecessary food and drink only to find you can buy it here.

Electrical Supply
The voltage on Fuerteventura (and the rest of Spain) is 220V AC, 50Hz - so most 240V appliances will work satisfactorily. The plugs are mainly of the two pin (circular pins) variety. UK adapter plugs can be purchased from most supermarkets and hardware stores
Mains Water
This is perfectly safe and fine for cleaning your teeth with or boiling up for tea and coffee but has a slightly salty taste if you drink it straight from the tap. You're better off buying the big 5 litre bottles from any supermarket in town. The ice used in bars and restaurants for drinks is 100% pure and safe.
Phoning Home
Phones will accept coins, prepaid phone cards or both. To phone the UK (Ireland) dial 00 44 then the area code minus the '0' then the number. If you're planning to bring your mobile phone to the Canary Islands contact your local mobile phone retailer. Some phones will have to be altered to accept the Spanish networks available in the Canary Islands.
Accommodation
The main accommodation on Fuerteventura is either Hotels or Self Catering Apartments. You can normally find something if you arrive on a flight only, although in peak season it is advisable to book something beforehand. See our accommodation database to check availability and the list of accommodation specialists. Any of these companies will be happy to fax/send you photos of where you will be staying plus any further information you should require.
Taxis
Taxis are easy to come by and they're cheap compared to the UK. A taxi journey from the airport to Corralejo for example, will cost you about €30.
Fuerteventura Taxi
Post Office
Just about every town and village has a post office. To send a letter of max. 20g. or postcards within the E.U, it will cost you 75 PTAs for a stamp. The stamps "sellos" (pronounced "say yos") can be brought from hotel receptions, shops and any post office.
Opening hours for the Post Office (Correos) are from Monday to Saturday, 8.30 - 14.00. Closed all day Sunday.
