HOW TO ARRIVE BY CAR TO CORRALEJO
Many of the Ohana Guesthouse guests consult us for the different ways to get to Corralejo and for that reason I have written this blog that I hope will help you to organize your arrival in the easiest and most economical way possible.
If you move by car on the island you should not worry too much because the roads are in very good condition and there is little volume of traffic which makes them quite safe.
If you have arrived by plane and have rented a car at the airport, you should take the road that goes to Puerto del Rosario and then to Corralejo, it takes about 35 minutes. Once past Puerto del Rosario, a few kilometers later you will find two alternatives as there are two roads that take you to Corralejo, the recently built highway that runs through the interior or the road that runs along the coast to Corralejo. It takes almost the same in any of the two options so there is no doubt that the best option is the one that runs along the coast since you have the opportunity to contemplate the beaches of the natural park of the dunes of Corralejo, some of the most beautiful beaches of the island are here and you can see them from the road with all ease, and if you have time you can access all of them from this same road, take pictures, etc ...
The dunes of Corralejo are less than 1 kilometer from the town. There is not much more to comment because the trip does not have many alternatives and getting to Corralejo is very easy.
HOW TO ARRIVE BY TAXI
At the airport there are a lot of taxis that will take you to Corralejo for an amount of € 40- € 50 approximately and depending on whether the trip is made day or night or on weekdays or holidays. The journey takes about 40 minutes. All taxis on the island are strictly regulated with taximeters to avoid surprises.
HOW TO ARRIVE BY PRIVATE BUS, SHUTTLE
This is a system that costs around € 6 per person per trip. It is a private pick-up service at the airport on a shared bus that brings you to the Ohana Guesthose. Your stop is 150 meters from our guesthouse. It is called Oasis Papagayo. The best thing is that for little money you make the direct journey that with the bus is not possible.
With this system you need about 60 minutes but it leaves you very close and you should not suffer as it currently happens with the public bus that forces you to take 2 buses as there is no direct bus and you must change at Puerto del Rosario so you will not know never if you arrive in time to catch your flight since the journey can last 60 minutes or 2 hours.
I suggest to book the shuttle 48 hours before your arrival because t became full booked early.
HOW TO ARRIVE BY BUS
It is the cheapest option, but you should know that there is no direct bus to Corralejo from the airport. You must take the bus from the company TIADHE, line 03 that leads from the airport to Puerto del Rosario. Line 03 will leave you at the bus terminal, guagua is what buses call in the Canary Islands, from Puerto del Rosario and there you will have to take the bus line 06 that will take you to Corralejo.
Therefore, remember that you will have to change buses in the Puerto del Rosario terminal.
Here I leave some information for you to check the company's site http://tiadhe.com/todas-las-rutas/

Stops in Corralejo
The bus arrives in Corralejo along the road that borders the beaches and has the first stop at the Riu hotels located in the natural park of the dunes of Corralejo. Later it continues until the El Campanario shopping center where there is a bus terminal that is next to the Civil Guard. It has another stop on the main avenue and commercial artery of the city and then goes to Avenida Juan Carlos I, to the port of Corralejo, up again by Juan Carlos I Avenue where it arrives at the main bus stop of Corralejo and from there it returns to Puerto de Rosario passing through the same stops but this time in the opposite direction.
IF YOU COME WITH FERRY TO PUERTO DE CORRALEJO
The ferry from Lanzarote and Gran Canaria that arrive at the port of Corralejo leave you at a short distance from the old town. You just have to check if your accommodation is in a more secluded area since Corralejo is quite large, with residential areas that are very close by car but walking and with suitcases are not so accessible, so if you come without a car you should know that there is a bus stop near the port and with the bus you will arrive more easily to your accommodation.
IF YOU COME WITH FERRY WITH ARRIVAL AT MORRO JABLE
There is a ferry from the company FRED OLSEN that connects the island of Fuerteventura with the island of Gran Canaria, it is very fast because it makes the journey in only 2 hours. But it arrives at the port of Morro Jable, which is 1.5 hours from Corralejo by car. So if you are thinking of coming from Gran Canaria with this ferry you must bear in mind that apart from the ferry trip you must cross the whole island of Fuerteventura. However, the island is not very busy so the car trip is not difficult and also allows you to see the whole island and its landscapes, and you can make stops at places of interest.
There is another ferry from the company ARMAS that goes from Gran Canaria to Fuerteventura but takes you to Puerto del Rosario. It's a bit slower but you'll save an hour by car because you'll only be separated 40 kilometers to Corralejo, and if you come without a car you can take the bus line 06 that will take you directly to Corralejo.
Fuerteventura surprisingly has many bicycle paths, has many alternatives of tracks
HOW TO GET TO OHANA GUESTHOUSE
Here a googlemaps link
If you arrive on the bus you should ask the driver to drop you off at the El Campanario Shopping Center stop, there you will see that in front of the stop there is a Civil Guard barracks located on Calle Lanzarote. We have to walk to the end of Calle Lanzarote, in the end you will find an Avenida from two directions called Calle Pedro and Guy Vandaele, you should turn right on this street until you get to a roundabout where you will see a supermarket called hiper dino express, some surf shop, restaurants, etc ...
If you turn in the roundabout on the left you will find yourself in Calle Guirre and from there you only have to go up the street about 70 meters and you will find us in the villa number 7 of Calle Guirre number 2, Villas Oasis Papagayo number 7.
HOW TO GET TO ALOHA SURF HOUSE
Aloha Surf House is located on Pedro and Guy Vandaele street number 14, from the airport and coming with the public bus you should ask to be left at the Campanario Shopping Center and from there go up the street where the Civil Guard is located, that is, go up Lanzarote Street to Pedroy Guy Vandaele Street, there turn left and walk about 70 meters to number 14.
If you come by shuttle you must ask when you make the online reservation to be left at the Arena Suite hotel stop, from there you have 5 minutes walk to our house.
