By Jakob Jelling
There is a great amount of different things to do and places to meet in the island of Lanzarote. Lanzarote is located towards the eastern area of the Canary Islands, and shows a size of about 13 miles in width and40 miles in length. One of the most appealing characteristics of Lanzarote is its climate. Lanzarote offers warm temperatures and scarce rains year around, turning it into a great place for those who wish to spend time at the beach and enjoy as many outdoor activities as possible.
The Limantaya National Park is one of the first spot tourists should visit while being in the island. This park was created over an area of lava field of more than 20 square miles. This lava field was created around the year 1730, when several volcanic eruptions covered the area with lava.
The House of Cesar Manrique is another interesting place tourists can visit in Lanzarote. This house is interesting from several points of view, such as from an architectonic perspective or a historic and an art related one. Near this place, within the central region of Lanzarote, there is the island's city of Arrecife, where tourists can find hotels, shops, restaurants and other facilities.
The northern area of Lanzarote has several attractive places to visit. One of these places is the Jameos del Agua, offering a formation of lava underground tunnels created after a volcanic eruption. Another spot to visit near the Jameos del Agua is the Mirador del R'o. The Mirador del R'o allows visitors to enjoy an amazing view and incredible landscapes since it is built over a strategic cliff area.
Another great place tourists can visit in this area of the island is La Cueva de los Verdes or Cave of the Greens. La Cueva de los Verdes is a system of lava caves and tunnels which are very interesting to meet. Visitors can walk through them and observe some unique spots and amazing lava formations. Near this place, the Jard'n de Cactus is another interesting spot to meet, containing a wide variety of species and kinds of cactus which those who enjoy nature and plants would surely like to observe.
