Property & Tourism Nightmares In Fuerteventura

Sep 7, 2008
Many companies in Fuerteventura and the Canary Islands rent property to fun-loving holiday makers from various countries. But the main nationalities that come here are The Brits, Germans, and Irish.

Now this seems like a very small section of the worlds varied countries. And there is a very simple reason for this. Only certain countries have direct flights to the Canary Islands; plus the runways are a little small for the bigger planes. Plus only a certain number of countries (named above) have advertising in place for these destinations.

It makes a lot of sense that countries with direct routes should push these locations, but it would be great of other countries approached the airline about routing into the Islands.

There is plenty of room for more airlines and competition, plus the airport in Fuerteventura has been revamped, as a huge population was predicted for 2008, and hundreds of properties have been built in expectancy of this.

But it never happened. But what did happen was the credit crunch hit, and it hit hard. The gas prices for airlines went up, and this expense was (helpfully) passed onto the traveler. But this has affected everywhere, and suddenly vacations seem to be a secondary consideration.

This is very sad as I live in the Canary Islands and to see the places low on tourists, empty seats on planes, and the tourist attractions simply not attracting tourists, is a crime.

I understand that this is a global phenomenon, but I guess its a little more obvious somewhere as small as Fuerteventura that relies on tourism. Its they don't come; the place is empty.

To see our islands dying a death is terrible, and I am sure everyone around the globe is suffering just as badly. But living here in this microcosm really hits home...and hard.

But the Canary Islands and Fuerteventura in particular, are fantastic places to visit. They are clean, safe, and the prices out here are fantastic. Property is cheap to buy and rent, and the average cost of a meal for a family of four, is probably 35% less than the UK.

Come and see us in the Canary Islands, it might mean a little more effort to get here, but I promise you, it will be worth it.
