Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Moving from the damp and cold UK to a warmer climate like that of Fuerteventura can benefit many people health wise especially those who suffer from arthritis and asthma. Less traffic pollution and warmer, drier air can prove to be very beneficial to those suffering from aching joints and bones too.

Living In The Canaries

Having said that, when you live on the island permanently  health care will undoubtedly be required at some time or another and luckily Spain and the Canaries offer an excellent standard of healthcare so you can rest assured that if you do become ill you will be in the best hands.

Local healthcare centres can be found in most of the main towns on the Island including Antigua, Corralejo and the capital Puerto Del Rosario.  Although the doctors and nurses here are experts in their profession very few speak fluent English so it is a good idea to take someone along with you to translate.


The main hospital on the island is located in the capital Puerto Del Rosario and has just been extended to cope with the rising population on the island. Any major operations are carried out on nearby Gran Canaria and the hospital provide a helicopter service to transfer patients to and from the islands.

A new Health Centre has also recently opened in Puerto Del Rosario to take the load off the emergency department at the hospital. You can turn up at this centre with your Social Security card and receive health care free of charge.

Medical Care

Mint Chocolate Health HighlightIf you are coming from another European destination then you will have the right to free medical care however you will need to provide the hospital with your EHIC card (available from your local Post Office in the UK). If you are working on the island then you will also need to apply for a Social Security Card in Fuerteventura which is called ‘Tarjeta de Social Seguridad’.  Your asesoria will be able to explain how to do this. If you are not working then you will need to make alternative arrangements for your health care and there are a number of private clinics on the island that provide a number of different options.

Overall the health care on Fuerteventura and the other Canary Islands is second to none and whether you choose to use the local health service or private health care you can be sure you are in good hands.
