The best would be if you coordinate with your car group to be picked up at the airport.
If you are the first one of your car sharing group arriving at the airport, you can be the one who picks up the car.
Consider beforehand who will be officially driving the car. It makes sense to choose a car rental company, where two people will be on the rental contract marked as drivers for free. In order to be marked as drivers, the driving licenses need to be present when signing the contract. Drivers can also be put into the contract later. If you want more than two drivers you may have to pay around € 10/driver extra. Check this before booking! It might differ from contract to contract!
Travelling by Car
When you come from the airport you will take FV-3 (direction Corralejo) until you reach the new highway (FV-1). Please check your way on Google Maps (link below).
On highway FV-1 you take the exit to FV-109 (direction Lajares and Cotillo). A few kilometers down on FV-109 (after 2.9km), there will be a big sign on your left hand side: Albergue el Cohombrillo (if you arrive in the dark take care to not miss it). That’s where you turn left onto the small street leading to the albergue. It is the path to the house, which is the second house you will find.
Here is the route from the airport to the albergue:
Travelling by Bus
You can also take the bus from the airport. Going by bus will take a long time! If you need to go by bus the fastest would be to go to Corralejo and be picked up from there.
For the bus schedule please check: http://www.fuerteventura.com/Ferry/index.shtml
If you have to take to bus the whole way, this is how you go:
Take the bus from the airport to Puerto de Rosario.
From there you can take number 07 PUERTO DEL ROSARIO – EL COTILLO, or number 06 PUERTO DEL ROSARIO – CORRALEJO and then on the next line number 08 CORRALEJO – EL COTILLO (the one going through Corralejo will take much longer!). On both routes you have to get out in Lajares or ask the bus driver if he can let you out on the road to Albergue el Cohombrillo (only some bus drivers know the place). From Lajares you can walk (1-2km), take a cab, or ask to be picked up.
