Most hotels are in the resorts of Puerto del Carmen, Playa Blanca and Costa Teguise. A hotel in Arrecife normally costs from about twenty-five euros for a night. Budget accommodation is available for around twenty-two euros. Public transport is relatively cheap on the island, note that buses are called 'guaguas'. There a often free buses to attractions from some resorts. Taxis are also good value, instead of giving a tip, just round up the fare. Due to the narrow streets and lack of parking spaces in the centre of Arrecife, visitors are advised to  park on the municipal car park and walk into town.
