Shopping in Arrecife Lanzarote
In Arrecife, the commercial capital of Lanzarote, you will find a many shops selling all kind of goods: International brand names, electronic equipment and duty free goods plus much more!
The main shopping area's are Calle León y Castillo, locally know as Calle Real but interesting shops are found as well along the promenade, on Calle José Antonio, Fajardo and Canalejas.
Lanzarote along with the other Canary Islands has managed to keep their status of lower import tax and VAT rates - duty free, so if you are looking to buy tobacco, wines, spirits, perfumes and maybe some electrical goods, look no further as they are much cheaper here than in other EU countries! But please remember unlike other European Union Countries, there is a strict limit to the amount that you are allowed to export out of Lanzarote into the UK and other EU countries!
The Limits are: 1 litre of spirits, 2 litres of wine and 200 cigarettes or 50 cigars.
There are many Electrical Goods shops that sell Cameras, Video Cameras, CD players etc. If you visit these shops, always ask for a discount - the displayed price is always negotiable! These will be mainly found along the high streets of the majority of tourist resorts.
If you, like me like the markets for a good haggle and great bargain there are plenty across the island of Lanzarote...Make sure you try to barter as it makes that bargain even more satisfying!!! Markets that are found in tourist areas such as Puerto del Carmen and Playa Blanca, are normally aimed at the tourism market selling, souvenirs and gifts, but around the island you will also find markets that provide for the local inhabitants, with the local farmers and produce makers selling their trade, such as local cheese's and confectionery! The markets are always a great day out to have a wander around and look even if you aren't planning on buying anything!
