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.
