Wednesday 25 Sept - Tuesday 8 Oct - Fuereventura: Our First Visit

Above is a view of where we stayed form Google Earth; we travelled out to Fuereventura on a Time-Share package. This was a cheap holiday in exchange for them trying to sell us a time-share. The time share resort Club Montecastillo  ( Club Montecastillo, situated 8 km. from the international airport, it is a family orientated complex with plenty of activities, either on site or close by. The resort offers garden areas, a large adult's swimming pool as well as a children's pool and play area. Other recreational facilities include a sauna, gym, and Jacuzzi and an on-site bar. There is also a restaurant, hairdressers, snack bar and mini-market. In the neighbouring area you can find a golf course and tennis courts) was very nice with a huge pool and a large bar restaurant directly opposite reception and an entertainment complex a little further down  filled with bars, amusements, restaurants and shops etc.. To get to the complex  you used a set of stairs that ran down parallel to the aforementioned bar; there were a few small shops along this route and one of them sold hand made items like sharks teeth bracelets which were made by the two ageing hippies (scandinavians if I recall correctly) who owned it. A little further down and to the left was a supermarket where we bought fresh pastries, for breakfast, each morning. The resort was on the hill above the town of  Caleta de Fuste (now called Costa Caleta), a purpose built resort town with it's own artificial beach, and it was a moderate walk down this hill to reach the town proper. Caleta de Fuste was a pleasant little place, it was big enough to have a variety of places to eat and so on but small enough to familiarise yourself with quickly.
