marina during the ARC (Oct to Nov). Example rates: 12x4m €18.9/day (€291/month) + water/electricity €1.23/day + €9.51 connection Facilities: Four ablution blocks with toilets and showers.

Communications: Airport served by many low-cost airlines. Taxi €25 from airport or €2.95 Global (turquoise) bus; every second bus from airport with destination ‘Santa Catalina’.
Internet: There is an inadequate payfor-use service (Aspira.es) or use any of the bars/cafés. The library, a 15-minute walk away and next to St Telmo bus station, has fast and free Internet. There are a few Internet cafés around.
Food & drink: Quite a few bars and restaurants inside the marina. More options a short walk away.
To do: Las Palmas is great for shopping and provisioning.
