Welcome! My name is Alejandro Delgado and I am a Remote Worker (and local) living on the beautiful island of Lanzarote (Canary Islands, Spain). The main reason I created this blog for Digital Nomads and Remote Workers is that I want to share some of Lanzarote's most exclusive places to visit and experiences to live. I will be posting about places, people, or objects, with a vivid description. I will also give my honest recommendations! I hope you enjoy your stay and enjoy reading this blog :)
Camino de Guatifay

Welcome to the start of an interesting hiking route, located between the towns of Guinate and Ye on the northern side of the island!
This route contains a large range of biodiversity and is distant from all the noise generated from the roads.
This is how the trail starts to look like, once you get closer and closer to the Risco which will allow you to witness these fantastic views of La Graciosa and the rest of the Arhcipiélago Chinijo:
I mean look at this
Visibility wasn't the greatest the day I hiked this trail, however, it normally has such a clear view it looks like you're staring at a painting at an exclusive art museum.
This is an example of Maritime Sunburst Lichen, otherwise known as Xanthoria parietina, it is a foliose, or leafy, lichen. It has a wide distribution, and many common names such as common orange lichen, yellow scale, maritime sunburst lichen, and shore lichen. It can be found near the shore on rocks or walls, and also on inland rocks, walls, or tree bark
The trail is the home of many different types of plant, insect, and bird species:
Look at this cute little beatle!
And also, look at this great view of the Volcán de La Corona:
This trail will take you to the start of another, the hiking route toward the Playa del Risco (which you can find my blog post about this beach here: Playa del Risco):
So as always, go have fun and explore!
I hope you enjoyed this post! If you'd like to check out some fun Lanzarote-inspired designs on my online store, here's the link:
Picture this, you are sunbathing on a tranquil beach, you have your favorite book on your lap, and you suddenly feel the urge to stop reading and stare in front of you. You witness a picturesque scene of a beautiful archipelago of small islands. You identify La Graciosa, and you can somewhat see Montaña Clara… where are you? You are at Playa del Risco. Playa del Risco is a 500-meter beach sheltered by the spectacular Risco de Famara (cliff of Famara). It is of the most isolated and quiet beaches on the island. A fantastic place to be on your own, with a friend or two, and even a whole family! This wonderful beach is located on the coast of Yé, sheltered by the glorious Risco de Famara. Playa del Risco is only accessible by boat, or by hiking down the trail known as the Camino de Los Gracioseros (a trail that deserves a blog post in its own right). Rest assured, the (at times difficult) trail is very well worth the effort. The panoramic view of the Archipiélago Chinijo (the small isla
Have you tasted Lanzarote’s one-of-a-kind wine yet? Whether you have already or not, I highly recommend visiting El Grifo’s Museo del Vino (Wine Museum). You’re going to love this unique experience. (P.S. This blog is not sponsored or anything like that, I only recommend what I have enjoyed myself). Museo del Vino de El Grifo (El Grifo’s wine museum) is in one of the oldest wineries in Lanzarote. Built on volcanic rock, in 1775, the building showcases Lanzarote’s pure and most traditional architecture containing thick volcanic rock walls and roofed with wooden beams, that came mostly from the scrapping of ships. By itself, the building is a place to contemplate and enjoy! The Lanzarote wine museum is located among the vineyards of the El Grifo area, on the road from the Monumento al Campesino to Uga, in the town of Masdache. It occupies the old wineries, built on the volcanic lava of the 18th-century eruption and dating from 1775. Access from the road is indicated by the monument to t
Have you ever wondered what authentic Canarian food tastes like? Perhaps you have already, but I hope it wasn't one of those massively touristic-based restaurants near the old-town of Puerto del Carmen... This is what our food looks like: This is called Queso a la Plancha (it's local fried cheese with a few potatoes and Mojo Rojo, you know what those things are by now since you have read all of my posts :) ) Introducing the Teleclub de Tao Before we go into this restaurant in particular, let's give you a brief overview of what a Teleclub is. A Teleclub is a place where there is normally a bar and restaurant area, and other rooms where different activities (such as card games) take place. There's usually a tv around, always on and showing the local news or a lucha canaria (Canary Island-style wrestling) match. Teleclubs are basically a place where you can drink good wine, eat amazing food and have a laugh with some locals. There are several on the island, I'll p
