Drive safe on La Palma

Traffic information for La Palma24 guests

Dear Guests,

For your safety we have compiled some advices about stress-free driving on La Palma.

Please note after takeover the car, that the Formula 1 enthusiastic islander have sometimes a daring driving style. Therefore you should drive defensively and always as far as possible on the right side of the road!

Attention! On your way from east to west of the island, you pass the tunnel and then you'll drive in direction of El Paso. Please note the signs just before the visitor center, the speed limits allow a maximum of 50 kilometers per hour. If you drive too fast you can be recorded from a well-hidden speed camera behind a rock and you have to pay later a high ticket.

The rules are easy to remember: As in most other countries too, the city speed limit is 50 km/h – and you can drive up to 90 km/h with your car or motorcycle outer roads.

Be careful when it rains. Because sometimes there is no rain for a long period of time, the roads are full of dust. With the first rain, the road's surface will be „as slippery as soap“. If this happens, please drive more „tranquilo“ – as we say here – especially on the curves!

Be careful with parking! Never place your car on a straight white or yellow line! Police will charge you high „Multas“, as the parking violation tickets are called on La Palma.

Some words about driving after drinking alcohol: the legal alcohol limit is 0,5 per mill for experienced drivers – for the other ones, who do not have their drivers permission longer than 2 years, the legal limit is 0,3 per mill. If the Police catches you with more, the „Multa“, will be very painful.

Have a save trip – sincerely your La Palma24 Team!
