So for larger groups of travellers, or those with special needs, it is our recommendation to make provision for a pre-booked taxi to
be waiting for you at the airport, and clearly specify at the time of booking that a larger, or specially adapted, vehicle is needed
for the journey.
The second option would be to pre-arrange for the collection of a hire car from one of the numerous agencies
based at the airport.
Driving over to Macher should be fairly stressless for most drivers, once you have remembered
which side of the road to drive on, as you leave the airport facility you will automatically join the LZ2,
the Carretera de Arrecife de Yaiza, at which point you need to head south west towards Tias.
Once past Tias, the LZ2 will then take you all the way into the centre of the village.
If needed, a more detailed version
of this route, complete with links to maps where appropriate, is available from the
link on the left hand frame of this page.
Whatever method of transport you ultimately decide upon for this journey, once you have arrived in the village you will very
quickly realise that Macher is not a purpose built tourist resort, but a very much a traditional Canarian town where you will
always have the feeling of being an invited, but welcome guest, to another way of life.
The small numbers of visitors who do make it here are often middle aged, and use the village as a convenient base to see
what still remains of the undiscovered Lanzarote, away from the over developed beach resorts and all night karaoke bars
along the popular south coast.
Macher has a small local supermarket which stocks a surprisingly wide range of goods, although many of the brands may not
be instantly recognisable to most British consumers.
However, for a wider choice, the town of Tias is only a few minutes drive away, and the
Centro Commercial Deiland
is also less than 15 minutes away in a car.
The village of Macher could never be described as being lively, and children or young teens would probably be hopelessly bored
within 15 minutes of arriving here.
However, if you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a tranquil setting, away from the all night
neon lit bars and nightclubs, then Macher may be the place for you.
