The steep rise in entry fees for the island’s tourist centres will take effect from January 1st 2024, it was confirmed yesterday.

The price rises were proposed earlier this year, but no date had been fixed. Tourist Councillor Angél Vazquez said the new fees “had been adjusted to fit the value of the tourist centres, which are artistic jewels and reflections of the harmony and balance that Lanzarote represents.”

The price rises will “benefit many people.” he continued. “They will make us more competitive and allow us to improve the quality of the experiences offered.”

The new fees for children from 7-12 years of age will be half of the adult fees, and residents of the Canary Islands will be eligible for a similar discount. The fees for Lanzarote residents will not change, remaining at about one or two Euros, depending on the centre.

The multi-ticket vouchers that allow visitors reduced entry to a number of the CACTs will no longer be offered, although discounts for organised groups may apply.
