Puerto del Rosario, Fuerteventura

Puerto del Rosario is the capital of Fuerteventura. It is based around a busy working port. Little of the activity in the capital of Fuerteventura is based on tourism. This makes it a good place to practise speaking Spanish and allows an insight into the daily life of Fuerteventurans, or at least those that live in this "city"

The port accommodates cruise ships that are visiting Fuerteventura as well as being a base for ferries that run between Fuerteventura and some of the other islands.

Puerto del Rosario is easily visited from other parts of the island as buses run to Puerto del Rosario from all the major towns on Fuerteventura. If you are considering a shopping trip it is worth bearing in mind that lots of the shops close for the siesta.

If you know what the ruin of a building in the photo is, I would very much like to know more about it.

Puerto del Rosario has its own beach. It is to be found to the south of the capital. The beach is pleasant and the waves are good, but there are signs warning of strong currents, so care is needed when bathing here.

As you can see, there are lots of statues to be found in Rosario.

The carnival in Puerto was held earlier this year. To see photographs of the carnival visit the Puerto del Rosario carnival queen .

Part of the carnaval in Puerto is an event called Los Archipencos, a sort of raft race. To see photographs of los archipencos visit the Los Archipencos .
