Monday, March 24th, 2008

Last year I wrote about a free guide book to Lanzarote that was available online. Now an updated version has appeared for the spring months.

The 104-page guide book is available as a download free of charge from the site and contains up-to-date information with ideas on things to go and places to visit, as well as vital information such as bank opening hours, driving tips and emergency phone numbers.

In addition to the download, 10,000 copies are being distributed to visitors, free of charge, via local car hire companies and tourist information offices on the island.   But if you are planning a visit to the island this year, then I recommend that you download it before you go so that you can start planning your holiday right away.
