Taxi from port in Arrecife to Old Town, Puerto del Carmen?

Hi

Stopping off in Lanzarote, I presume Arrecife, from cruise ship in September and would like to get to Old Town in Puerto del Carmen and wondering how much/how long it would be in a taxi?

Many thanks,

I would say, allow 30e. It may not be that much mind. Time wise 25 minutes approx, Plenty of taxis to get you back as well....enjoy

Thanks a million Kelly & Keith. Maybe we could get a bus? Is the port within walking distance of the city of Arrecife? If I remember there are bus stops close to the Grand Hotel? I think 30euros there and back is a bit steep...IMO.

Thanks again,

If you can find your way to ikea and Lidl (poss viewable off the ship) then just catch the 03 bus from there, it goes through Arrecife and continues to PDC, same on the way back. every 20 minutes approx.

If you cannot see Ikea, follow the cruise path out of the docks until it joins the road on the cliff and turn right, walk up to the junction (Ikea in front) and turn left, bus stop just along there.

Just back from cruise and thanks again Keith as your directions were spot on and we had a lovely day in Puerto del Carmen. Mind you, we had to be back on board at 3.30 so just to be careful with time for anyone thinking of doing the same...it took us just about 30 mins to walk from the ship to the bus stop and then another 30 mins on the bus to P del C.
