Public transport on LA PALMA

The bus? No, the GuaGua! The bus on La Palma is not just a bus like in Spain but has a very special name, the Guagua. In Cuba and the Canary Islands, the term "Guagua" is used to refer to buses. It is assumed that its origin originates from the company WA & WA Co. Inc. (Washington, Walton and company Incorporated) that was the first US company to export buses to those islands. With a little Palmese dialers, WA wa is a kind of gua gua, at least if we have to believe the stories…. Public transport on La Palma is very well arranged. If you don't have a car until you beschkking and have enough time, the bus is a godsend. The buses run regularly, normally also on time and it is very inexpensive. For hikes from A to B, the bus is perfect. In combination with a taxi ride, every walk is easy to do. Timetables the timetable on the site of TILP (Transportes Insulares La Palma) is not very well organized and easy to understand for everyone. The timetable can be found here. And he is also available for download from the site (PDF). There has recently been an app to download for Android and IPhone. This is called Moovit em works as a travel planner. A very good alternative, therefore, for the somewhat awkward schedule of the TILP itself. Costs for distances up to 10 km are charged €1.50 per person. For distances up to 20 km, €2.40 per person will be charged for distances over 20 km is the price per person €2.60. All tickets are for sale in the bus. There is also a kind of OV card that is rechargeable. The card itself costs €1,-and can be recharged up to amounts of 10, 20 or 30 euros. This card can also be obtained from the bus or bus station. Taxi all Over the island drive a lot of taxi ´ s and the costs for a taxi are also good to do. So if you decide to have a bite to eat somewhere with a wine, just take the taxi. Because also on La Palma there are many alcohol checks. Pitch Los Llanos Parada de Taxis los llanos de Aridane Avda.
