Its an hour from the ferry port at Playa Blanca to Guatiza, if you travel along the southern belly of the island along the main routes, it is Semi Urbanized almost the entire way until you reach Coste Teguise. The final stretch north to Guartiza then become open and rural. There are sandy beaches, and touristic infrastructure at Coste Teguise. There is not much nightlife locally but you can enjoy the meals provided by the host. Culturally there is the interest of the Cactus garden and the other two tourist sights to the north on the peninsular towards the island of Grasicosa. Just small rustic towns and a couple of ports. Nearby is the inland old city of Teguise worth a visit, and the Manrique Foundation just north of Accerife. The buildings in Guartiza are attractive in the modern traditional style and in good order. The area still has fields filled with prickly pear cactus from when it was a centre for the cochineal dye industry that used the cactus a host feed plant.
