Are you the kind of person who organises a holiday with great precision? Or the exact opposite - a last-minute holiday decided on the spur of the moment and completely impetuous? There are doubtless arguments for both ways to book a holiday and we have probably all had a turn at both!
The same really does go for accommodation except that it isn't the price that changes the nearer you get to the holiday date - it's the availability! So if you are looking for a specific type of accommodation such as an apartment near the beach but with two bedrooms and a swimming pool … or a house in the country but near a restaurant and walking routes, for best choice of exactly what you want - book early. (And of course, ask us and you too could be staying in a beautiful holiday house like this!)
And if you are looking for direct flights from the UK to La Palma - then best keep your eye on www.thomsonfly.com.

El Camino Real, La Ruta de la Costa, the GR130 or whichever name you like to give it, is the new way to go. Yes, I can really see that his amazing and unforgettable, 8-day walk around La Palma will one day be the Mecca for any walker wanting a challenge and to immerse themselves in some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable.
Great then that all the work that was done in 2010 to clear the paths, put up new signs and generally give the whole route a massive make-over, has not been in vain.
Apart from the diehards who carry their huge rucksacks on their backs, a new trend is the luggage-transported holiday. For anybody who doesn't know what this is, the idea is that your luggage is transported for you between accommodations and 'all' you have to do is the walking. When you arrive at your accommodation, your luggage is waiting for you. The great thing is that you can pack all your creature comforts to have at hand after a long day's walk and you don't have to go the minimal route.
It has been said to me on a number of occasions however, that this is not really possible in La Palma due to the lack of suitable accommodation along the route.
Well, it might not always be easy to find but I am pleased to say that, in part also to a fabulous taxi company, our luggage-transported holidays are stepping out in style!
