Vacation planning starts on the very same moment when you have chosen your destination. The authentic madness starts here.
To begin with, what dates should you choose? If your trip to Lanzarote depends on your child’s school holidays, then you have little margin there. However, if you have the luxury of freely choosing the season for your travel, then, without a doubt, it is best between September and November.
During these months, air temperature on the island is very enjoyable, with 23 degrees Celsius (74 Fahrenheit) on average. The winds also seem to take a break, and the “rabbit summer” starts. Seize the opportunity to come during this season, as there is no massification of tourists, and the sea is calm and perfect for bathing.
Even so, keep in mind that even through the temperature is very nice during the day, it usually drops quite a bit at night. Taking into account the outdoor humidity, you will need a jacket, so that you wouldn’t get chilly or cold. Remember, we are 140 km away from the African coast and the climate is quite similar as a far as temperature differences.
We recommend you to rent a car to move around the island. Since it is a relatively small island, the distances are short and driving on the roads is easy because there are no mountain areas or complicated roads. Moreover, most car rental companies offer child or baby seats, either free of charge or at some additional surcharge. Look into it, because this way you could choose if you’d want to travel with a car seat from your home or not.
If your family likes to visit museums and find out a bit more about your destination, Lanzarote features a network of tourist centres which is very comprehensive and entertaining for big and small visitors alike.
If you are travelling with a baby, we recommend you to use a baby carrier, because many centres are not adapted for baby strollers. These routes are usually quite short, so this will be the most comfortable way for both of you to discover places on the island.
