Kick back at the coolest coast in the Canaries

Sing a happy tune because you're kicking it in Spain's Canary Islands. Seen Casablanca? Play it again, Sam, because you're actually closer to Morocco than Spain in the beachside resort town of Puerto del Carmen. Immerse yourself in a happenin' scene that has live music, nightclubs, and disco bars. Puerto del Carmen vacation rentals, some designed by architect and artist Cesar Manrique, are on the southern side of the island of Lanzarote. You'll find lots of low-rise Spanish-style buildings that blend perfectly with the volcanic landscape. Puerto's also sporting a quaint fishing port and beaches to die for.

Eat, drink, and dance your heart out in Puerto

From relaxing to dancing, Puerto del Carmen vacation rentals put you near a great mix of activities. Spend a day in the sun and sea on 1 of the dazzling beaches. Then don your dancing shoes and hit the nightclubs and disco bars on Puerto's main strip, Avenida de las Playas. You'll work up an appetite with all that dancing, so replenish with some hearty roasted papas (potatoes) grown in the rich volcanic soil, or fresh-off-the-boat sea bass from the Old Town fishing harbor. Wash that down with some Canarian wine from 1 of the surrounding vineyards.

Zip to the zoo, tour a lava tube and admire art

Call on Lady Luck and hit the colorful Gran Casino de Lanzarote overlooking the ocean. Rancho Texas Lanzarote Park is a zoo with lots to do, inlcuding pony rides, water slides, and animal shows. Head 25 miles up the coast to Cueva de los Verdes, which is a colorful lava tube that also has a concert hall with live music. The Cesar Manrique Foundation, set in the artist and architect's former home, features Spanish artists and some nifty landscaping at the top of a volcanic trail. Finally, the Cactus Garden is a botanical park with 1,000 prickly plant species.

You won't see much rain in this sunny island of Spain

If you like it hot, Puerto's your place. This subtropical climate boasts an average temperature of 75 degrees and lots of sun. Summer's peak season for temperatures and travelers. The hottest months of August and September hop up to the mid 80s, while the coldest month of January sits in the mid 60s. The ocean is quite comfortable for swimming in the summer. It may rain in December or January but you're talking sprinkles and showers rather than thunderous downpours. If you're there in the spring, expect to see some daily cloud cover, and maybe even a dust storm.

There's lots to lava in this volcanic landscape

If you do a little exploring, you'll see why Lanzarote is nicknamed the Island of 1,000 volcanoes. Lunar-like lava fields of cones, craters, and rock formations create cool volcanic geography. Don't worry, these volcanoes haven't been active for ages. The center of the island's got some hills and volcanoes that level out into sandy beaches, some of which will be near your Puerto del Carmen vacation rental. The Canaries are a hot spot for migrating birds, and if you visit the lava tubes, you're sure to see some of the tiny blind crabs that live here exclusively.
