budget

hi all, we are coming to lanza for the last wek in june, first week in july.

we are staying in a private apartment in yaiza, self catering.

we tend to eat out most evenings, and maybe 2 or 3 times a week in the daytime.

we drink in moderation now, so a couple of beers or a bottle of red between us a day at most.

we aren't too bothered about "posh" or upmarket restaurants, but neither are we looking for "transport cafe" style prices.

we dont do excursions or activities (bone idle).

between two of us we are currently budgeting for 125 euros a day, is this likely to be enough to enjoy the fortnight, or will we be needing a visit to a food bank by the second week?

Sounds fine to me . We found that few restaurants in PB unlike Puerto del Carmen had meal offers and so generally a meal for 2 with a bottle of wine or maybe a couple of cocktails and 2 courses were between €60 and €100. Prices are very similar to home if you were out at some where equivalent to Jamie's, las iguanas or zizzis etc. If you have steak like fillet then expect top end price. Wine and cava very cheap in supermarkets, but everything else in your basket again not diss similar generally to at home , except we thought fruit and salad veg was cheaper and better produce than the rubbish most of our supermarkets churn out. Obviously you can eat cheaper on pizza out or chicken and chips but proper restaurants, but not posh, I think average spend of €80 without tip. If you run out there are very pleasant restaurants that will do home cooked staples like hot chicken in a bun and fries etc way cheaper and you still have that lovely sea view. There's always burger king rather than the food bank if it gets desperate! If you are eating out lunchtime too then you may overspend as you need €15 to €30 for hot food

Probably about what we spend per day for similar day to day holiday living but I would add to that the cost of car-hire/petrol.

Can be done cheaper or more expensively as you choose as there is a wide range of restaurants in Playa Blanca.

Enjoy your trip

That's plenty. We have a similar profile and €100 per day easily works for us.

We usually spend 100 euro a day, have lunch and dinner out every day. Only thing extra to that is car hire. Same as you not big drinkers now, you should have plenty with 125.

Just a thought....

The OP says that they are staying in a private apartment in Yaiza.

If they are in Yaiza village, then no good telling them about PB restaurants (unless they have a car, but then Uga and Las Brenas would be nearer). There are only a couple of eateries in Yaiza village.

They could of course be staying in PB which is in the Yaiza Municipality. Clarification would help?

thanks very much all, for your quick responses.

we are in the shadow of the volcano almost, the road name is Las Laderas, it looks to be about a couple of kilometres from the main resort area. we dont do driving abroad, do too much of it at work, holiday is holiday.

we tend to walk out, maybe taxi back if its very late (or in the old days when i was very drunk!)

It's about a 2 mile walk to the centre. If you are doing a big shop at the Superdino they will call a taxi for you.
