A wonderful base for exploring
Last minute holidays to Puerto Calero could see you rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous; the affluent marina is awash with multi-million pound yachts and lined with upmarket boutiques and swanky restaurants. Relax in the marina and wile away the hours with a spot of people watching before climbing aboard a catamaran and cruising along the Lanzarote shoreline.
Deep sea diving trips can be arranged from the marina, but if you prefer not to get wet, then take a submarine excursion to view the wonderful underwater world through your very own porthole.
Venturing a little further afield on Puerto Calero holidays could see you visiting the Ruta de los Volcanes, only if you like hiking though as this is a 19 kilometre trek along the islands dormant volcanoes. Not everyone’s idea of fun, and perhaps better suited to cooler days, however it is both fascinating and beautiful, don’t forget your camera!
Timanfaya National Park is another favourite excursion on holidays in Puerto Calero or for stunning panoramic views, take a trip to the north of the island to Mirador del Rio, an old lookout point updated in 1974 by the local artist Cesar Manrique.
There is no beach at Puerto Calero but the golden sands at nearby Puerto del Carmen are within easy reach.
Puerto Calero holidays will suit those who enjoy a slightly more affluent feel to their Lanzarote holidays, but be prepared for prices to reflect this. Book late deals to Puerto Calero online here at Latedeals.co.uk.
