My Baby Shower Celebration Time seems to be flying now as I start my maternity leave and begin preparing for the arrival of our first little one. Last weekend two of my closest friends left their children with their husbands and came to stay to help me organise a small but beautiful baby shower celebration. I spent a […]

When I was young I used to love dancing around at any opportunity and didn’t care if any one was watching! As an adult I am far more conscious about what other people think although I love going to ‘five rhythms dance events’ which is a bit like music and movement for adults and makes you feel […]

    Amanda - Hello. I read your post about the free state run camping sites. Sounds like you definitely had an amazing time. I have tried doing my own research about where these camp sites are and how yo get there but as you have mentioned it’s not that easy to find the information. I don’t drive a car and don’t think I would feel confident to drive around mountains even if I did. I read some where on my Google search that there is only on campsite that has a public transport link. There is a bus that goes to Tejeda, and no 18.I believe there are three camp sites in Tejeda. Do you know which one would be closest to the bus service. Hope your enjoying motherhood with your little one. Thankyou for sharing your camping trip with us. Hope you can help and hope to hear back. Take care Amandaglynde@gmail.comReplyCancel

      Ruth Joy - Hi Amanda,

      Glad you found the blog post useful, its such a beautiful country to explore. We do seem to remember seeing a bus stop a few miles from Camping Pinar de Tamabada. (Address: Pinar de Tamadaba. 35480 Pinar de Tamabada, Agacte – Gran Canaria.) But it was very dark and we don’t have the most reliable of memories. If there is a bus to Tejeda and you can get to CAMPING CUEVA DE NIÑAS we would really recommend it as it was beautiful.

      I think the best thing for you to try is to contact the Citizen Attention and Information Office (OIAC) as they spoke excellent English and had lots of information about things like that so maybe you could phone them up and ask for information, maybe they could email you a map of the campsites and bus routes? Office hours are 8.30 – 14.00 Monday to Friday and 9.00 – 12.00 noon Saturday. Phone: 928 21 92 29, Fax: 928 21 94 25 Web:

      One thing to note is the lack of facilities at the free campsites so you would have to bring all your food with you.

      Good luck with it all and if you have any other questions let us know and we will try to answer them.
