Welcome to Lajares
Lajares is a small village just outside of Corralejo in the north of Fuerteventura. Although small a lot of locals live here or are starting to move here as it is easy access to one of the island popular tourist resorts (Corralejo) but is not in the hustle and bustle of the resort.
One of the first things you will notice when entering the village of Lajares is the football stadium which was built in 1990 and holds many football games there during the season and a 'lucha canaria' area which is a form of wrestling popular throughout the Canary Islands.

The nightlife in Lajares is non existent other than a few small local bars, you will not find anything else here so again if you are up for an evening out then you will have to go to the resort of Corralejo, here the nightlife mainly centres around the Atlantico Commercial centre that has plenty of bars and restaurants in and surrounding it, this is where to go for a great night out! Whether you are looking to party the night away in one of the many bars or chill in the beautiful square close by listening to the evening entertainment in a variety of lovely restaurants that share this picturesque setting.

Whichever you preference you can find it in Corralejo and never be stuck for anything to do in the evening! Alternatively the majority of the main hotels in the resort have brilliant restaurants and a varied entertainment schedule which is perfect for those with the younger families!
Although as an Island Fuerteventura does not contain the usual water parks, zoo's and theme parks as lot of of other holiday destinations do, but it as an immense amount of beautiful land and surrounding ocean, with a national park in the South and lots of history throughout for you to explore!

There are Companies that rent these properties out, but also there is private rentals, where people that have bought the property for holiday homes and when they are not there using it they will rent it out for your exclusive use! Some of these properties can be set in privately owned complexes, where locals live! Most come with communal swimming pools too, and these are normally quieter due to the fact it isn't full of holiday makers and is more residencial.
