Depending on where you are staying, public buses may be a good option for getting around the Island. That said, Fuerteventura is a long island, so fares from Morro Jable to Puerto del Rosario will soon add up (€10 per journey). Other routes, such as Corralejo to Puerto del Rosario are much more economical (€3.40).

Buses are known locally as Guaguas (pronounced Wah-wah) – a term that is also used in the Caribbean, but not in Mainland Spain. The public bus company on Fuerteventura is Tiadhe.

Getting to/from the Airport by Bus
Not all areas are well-connected to the Airport by Bus. However, both Caleta de Fuste and Puerto del Rosario are very-well connected to the Airport with regular buses running between 7am and just after midnight everyday (Route 03).

Bus routes also connect Morro Jable and Costa Calma directly to the Airport, however there are just 4 buses per day on weekdays and even less on weekends and public holidays (Route 10). Gran Tarajal is also connected with a somewhat infrequent service (Route 16).

To get to any other areas from the Airport, you must first get the bus to Puerto del Rosario’s Bus Station and change there.

Bear in mind that a Taxi from the Airport to Morro Jable will cost about €100, while a pre-booked transfer will cost about €15 per person.

Seeing the Island by Bus
It is possible to see much of the island by public bus, however smaller towns and villages are often connected by infrequent buses, so careful planning is required. Fares can mount up quite quickly, so hiring a car may be more economical if there is a group travelling together.

    Is there a number 10 bus from airport to morro jable on Wednesdays at 19:00 hours or 20:00 hours. How long to Morro Jable from airport and how many euros please?

    • administrator

      No, there is no bus at those times. The journey costs €9.70 and takes about an hour and a half.
      As an alternative, you could get a bus from the Airport to the Puerto del Rosario Bus Station and then take the no.1 bus from there to Morro Jable, however this bus takes a very long time as it stops at many small towns along the way.

    What’s the quickest route to get to Las Playitas from the airport?

    I’m guessing I’d have to get a bus to Gran Tarajal and then another bus to Las Playitas but want to find the quickest service(s) to get there if possible.

    Thank you.

    • administrator

      There is no direct route, however you can get the number 6 bus from Corralejo Port to the Bus Station in Puerto del Rosario, and then the number 3 from there to the Airport.

    • administrator

      Follow the link for Bus Number 8. From here there is a map you can follow to find the nearest stop to Marina Village. It looks like either the stop before at the “Geafond” area as listed on the maps or the stop after, which is at Tamaragua.

    Hi what is the best way to get from the Airport to Moro Jable by bus as I arrive tomorrow Saturday 24th at 10:30am and it looks like the earliest bust is 13:45 from the airport is that correct? thanks

    • administrator

      Off the top of my head, it’s about 40 minutes each way. It’s been a while since I got that bus, perhaps you could give us an update once you’ve used it?

    • administrator

      No, you would need to get the No.3 bus to Puerto del Rosario Bus Station and then the No.6 from there to Corralejo.

    Hello,

    could you please confirm what are the bus times from Morro Jable to Cofete and back?

    I am coming by car to Morro Jable – is the bus station easy to find? Is there parking around?

    Many thanks!

    • administrator

      Hi, The link to the timetable was broken but has now been fixed:
      http://tiadhe.com/linea-111/

      There are only 2 buses per day (in each direction), leaving Morro Jable at 10:00 and 14:00, and leaving Cofete at 12:45 and 16:45.
      A word of warning: if it is a busy time of year, the bus is often full by the time it gets to Cofete on the return journey, and you would have to walk the 10km over the mountains to get back.

      The bus station is very easy to find, it is huge and would not be out of place in major city! Parking is another matter – you could park at Morro Jable port, though you run the risk of the bus being already full by the time it gets there as well.

      My advice would be to get the bus to Cofete, but be prepared to walk back (just in case). I would not even try to catch this bus during peak season – especially if you have a long drive to even get to Morro Jable. Also, if there are a few of you, it may be just as cheap to hire a 4×4 from a local rent-a-car company (the bus costs €8.70 each way). The road to Cofete is graded (but unsealed) and well-maintained, many people drive on it in ordinary small cars, the only issue is whether you are allowed to drive there under the conditions of your car rental agreement.

    Hello,

    Is there any bus from El Cotillo to Corralejo tomorrow,Sunday in the evening?

  6. Philna Dippenaar

    Is there any type of hop-on-hop-of bus going around the island? I was in Puerto del Rosario once before and saw a sign near the harbour that said there is hop-on-hop-off, but I can’t find any info on it?

    • administrator

      Hi, Not that I know of – but, for some reason, it does ring a bell, so there may have been something like that in Puerto del Rosario in the past. The island is very long, so bus journeys are longer than you might expect (it takes a few hours to get from Morro Jable to Corralejo by Bus).

      If someone knows better, then please feel free to comment here.

    Hi

    I am staying in Costa Calms and looking to doing some trail runs from Morro Jable. How often are the buses and approx how much for a return journey. Thanks

    • administrator

      It costs €2.70 each way (there is no return ticket).
      Several buses serve this route: 1, 5, 10, 25, so they are frequent during the day.

    Hello, is there a bus I can take that leaves near La Oliva and goes to the Fuerteventura airport tomorrow (Thursday)? Thank you

  9. Kelly

    Hallo

    At what time in the morning does n.10 leave from caleta del fuste to costa calma?

    Gracias

    • administrator

      It leaves Puerto del Rosario at 9.00 – so it will leave Caleta de Fuste about 10-15 minutes after that.

    if my wife gets a no 1 bus from Puerto del resario to morro jable for a tour is there any toilet stops

    • administrator

      Hi, No, it’s a public bus service, so you would have to get off and wait for the next bus.

  12. Lucie

    Hello,
    what is the best way how to get from Costa Calma to Corralejo? How long does it take and how much does it cost? Is it easy to get there or do you rather recommend to rent a car?
    Thank you.
    Best regards, Lucie

    • administrator

      You would need to get the Number 1 bus to Puerto del Rosario, and then the number 6 from there to Corralejo. It would cost €10.95 one way and take about 2 and half hours. If you are planning a return journey, then I’d recommend hiring a car.

    Hi,
    I wanted to go to Betancuria, coming from El Cotillo, spend the night there, and then go down to La Pared or Costa Calma.
    Seeing the bus routes, that seems very complicated though, what do you think the options could be?
    Thanks a lot!

    • administrator

      It’s do-able, although I’d leave La Pared out, as the bus to La Pared is very infrequent.

      • Victor

        Thank you. Line 4 doesn’t seem an easy option indeed.
        Could you please confirm that:
        – to do El Cotillo-Betancuria, the only option is line 7 to Pto Rosario, then line 2 to Betancuria
        – and then to go to Costa Calma, line 2 back to Pto Rosario, and line 1 to Costa Calma.
        Do you have any idea how long these different rides are?
        Thanks

        • administrator

          I’ve never got the bus from El Cotillo to Puerto del Rosario, but I’d guess it takes about 40mins.
          From memory, the bus from Puerto del Rosario to Betancuria takes about 45 minutes (it could be less). The bus from Puerto del Rosario to Costa Calma takes a long time: maybe 1 and a half hours.

  14. Leila

    Hi there,

    Can you tell me what time the buses run from Corralejo to Puerto del Rosario in the morning & then on to the airport during the week?

    I have a flight with check in around 9.30-9.45am for my return journey back home.

    Many thanks,

    L

    Hi. Could you please tell me if there is a bus between Calete de Fuste and Antigua? Cost? Duration? Thank you!

    • administrator

      Hi, The Linea 16 bus passes through both Nuevo Horizonte and Caleta de Fuste – though it is not very frequent. I don’t know the cost, but I would guess that it’s around €2 each way.
      You may be better off using the much more frequent number 3 and number 1 buses via Puerto del Rosario bus station.

  16. Pamela

    Is it possible to get a bus from Morro Jable port to Caleta de Fuste? is it 1 bus I would need or 2? We arrive at 12.20pm on a Saturday. Thanks

    • administrator

      Hi, The number 10 bus goes from Morro Jable to Caleta de Fuste, however it does not leave from the port, so you would need to walk into Morro Jable town to get it (about a 10 minute walk). I would suggest that you get an inexpensive Taxi from Morro Jable Port to Morro Jable Bus Station (Estación de Guaguas).
      Since the number 10 bus is infrequent, you may need to get the Number 1 bus from Morro Jable to Puerto del Rosario, and then the number 3 from there to Caleta de Fuste. Some number 10 buses even leave from Morro Jable port (check the timetable to see which ones).

  17. Amanda

    Hi, Can anyone advise how much a taxi would approx cost from Caleta de Fuste to Coralejo please ? Many Thanks

      • Amanda

        Thank you for your prompt reply. Our ferry to Lanzarote is 1130am on a Saturday morning therefore I am a bit apprehensive to get the bus.

        • administrator

          As long as you give yourselves plenty of time, you will have no problem getting the bus – and the number 6 leaves you in the port right beside the ferry.

  18. maria connolly

    Hi Can you tell me if its possible to get a bus from coralejo ferry port to Elba Castilo San Jorge hotel in Caleta del Fusca? If so do you have a timetable and cost please ..Thank you

    • administrator
