New Edit

Hello and welcome to this week edition

August has arrived!! Our busiest month of the year. This month most legal offices close for holidays (Too hot for the Spanish).

Many Spanish family restaurants normally close also, although the tourist ones are still open. This is as most of our visitors are in the “all inclusive” resorts with children.

Even the emergency services are on shorter staffing. The emergency centre in Corralejo is usually not staffed and any urgent cases must attend the casualty dept in Puerto Del Rosario.

Parking in the centre of Corralejo town is very difficult. With the extra hire cars out on the roads and the extensive road works continuing at the moment my advice is to travel on foot wherever possible.

Remember if you are here with children factor 50 is needed when out in the intense heat we have at the moment. This weekend is on high alert for the some of the islands. Drink plenty of fluid and where possible keep pets inside.

Enjoy the days ahead and keep safe.
