Visit to Los Jameos del Agua and Cactus Garden

Lanzarote retains the mark and the spirit of César Manrique (1919-1992), who used the scenery of this volcanic island of exceptional beauty as a canvas —the most important one— for his art. Los Jameos del Agua and the Cactus Garden are two testimonies to the extraordinary creativity of this universal artist. Los Jameos del Agua, just a 25-minute drive from the port of Arrecife, surprises visitors with its extraordinary integration of nature and art.
Volcanic cave and one of the prettiest pools in the world
Los Jameos is a volcanic cave with an underground lake that is home to a species of albino crab found only here. Starting out with this creation made by nature, Manrique's talent integrated an auditorium where all kinds of concerts are held, a garden of palm trees and one of the prettiest pools in the world, which can currently be visited but is closed for swimming. It also has a café and an exhibition room. All together, it is irresistibly appealing.
From Los Jameos del Agua to the Cactus Garden
A few minutes from Los Jameos del Agua on the way back to the port in Arrecife, the Cactus Garden, in the municipality of Teguise, is well worth a stop. There are almost 1500 cactus species from all over the world here. Easy to spot from the road thanks to the large metal cactus at the entrance, this original garden was the last work by the wonderful César Manrique on the island of his birth and another example of the union between art and nature that dominated his work. Fans of gardening, in particular, and nature, in general, will acknowledge the great botanical value of its cactus collection.

Sostenibilidad
- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Use the waste- paper baskets and, insofar as possible, separate and place your recycling waste in the appropriate containers.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- In natural spaces and at viewpoints, do not leave the trail or the spaces designated for people to be in.
- Respect and look after the area's historic and cultural heritage, along with the public furniture and items for visitors, such as information panels or telescopes and binoculars.
