Tips on Avoiding Isla de Fuerteventura Tourist Traps

Isla de Fuerteventura Tourist Traps

Isla de Fuerteventura is one of the largest of the Canary Islands of Spain. This island is popular among tourists during the holidays due to its year-round warmth and gorgeous white-sand beaches. Many tourists look forward to going to the Isla Fuerteventura to go surfing, watersking, and windsurfing. However, while there are plenty of things in Isla de Fuerteventura to anticipate, it is important that tourists look out for traps.

British Food Shop Tourist Trap

One tourist trap that you should watch out for is a man who runs a British food shop. He sells both Iceland and common foods. If you choose to buy food from this shop, be sure to keep track of what you spend. The owner of the British food shop has a track record of overcharging for food. No matter which shop you go to, you should ensure that you know the cost of all the products you’re buying. Some shop owners will try to scam individuals who appear to be tourists. Be vigilant and they will have a harder time taking advantage of you.

Beware of Buying Goods

You want to be especially careful when it comes to buying CD players, cameras, radios, and other more valuable goods. Be sure to conduct a lot of research when it comes to the normal prices for these goods. The Internet is a good source. Electrical shops have mastered the art of getting tourists to buy what appears to be a good deal. Be sure to convert your money into Euros before you make a purchase, so that you know for certain that you’re getting a good deal compared to the prices at home. Another trick that sellers use is telling customers that they should pay by credit card so that they don’t see the charge until months later. However, the truth is that you will see the charge on your bill within a few days.

Train Tour Tourist Trap

If you’re in Corralejo, you may come across small road trains that can take you on a tour. If you don’t want to be disappointed, don’t take this train tour. The staff of these train tours aren’t particularly tempting and waiters will try to tempt you to spend money at their restaurants. The train tour consists of a short trip around Corralejo’s back streets, which are not in the best condition.
