To be very honest, if you are planning to move lock, stock and barrel and really make a permanent life here, I would recommend it! It’s a safe place, including environmentally. People are wonderful, culture and community are strong values here. No one works themselves to death. Jobs are available in lots of fields and new people who want to join Canarian society are welcome. And spanish an easy language to learn. I discovered it too late. My grown children ( your age) would not let me stay forever! But I would recommend it to them, so I send you one positive vote. Susan from UK

Hi looking for some advice - we are looking to buy a property out here - we don’t have a huge budget about 160 -180 and ideally somewhere that has good transport links as am loosing the vision in my eye so driving in the future might possibly siable be a deal breaker for being somewhere that lacks transport links just some advice for best estate agents and areas to look

I only know well the north of the island. Costa Teguise would be the town I’d recommend. Everything is available within walking distance - groceries, post office, pharmacy, all kinds of shops and lovely beach.  Only about 5km from Arrecife, making access to city and to airport very close and cheap by taxi.  The south end of island is more popular with British ex-pats or snowbirds, but much further from capital and airport.  Costa Teguise is lovely.  I recommend taking a look there.  North of island is quieter and I think just as beautiful.
