The Rancho Texas Park is of course open 365 days of the year and is a great day out for the whole family and there is also the Buggies Lanzarote tours which also have quads and trikes too and this is a great way to see the island.

If you are the sporty kind then watching or participating in the Club La Santa’s Cycling Trophy from December 15th - December 17th is unmissable for all age groups.
