Geocache Description:

URGENT!! Dear fellow geocachers. I have received message that the lid of the box is broken. Since I am not able to come to Fuerteventura soon, I ask if some of you who are planning to visit this cache is villing to replace the box. Normal good quality regular size Rubbermaid style box. If you do replace the box, please send me a message. Thank you!!

This cache is located quite near the coastal road FV-1.

It is a nice walk less than 1 km thru sandy desert. To reach the cache you may need to climb, but not very high. Be cautious! Due the sand and rocks you are not able to reach this cache by wheels. The terrain is though very easy to walk. The original container was a film canister, but is now upgraded to a regular Rubbermaid style plastic box.

You can leave your car next to 19 Km sign post on FV-1, on coordinates
N 28°39.841´ W 013°49.988´.

Do not forget to take some water with you. After cache hunting you can go to swim at the nice Playa Alzada beach.

Since I am not living on Fuerteventura, I am not able to maintain the cache very frequently. So please, bring your own pen just in case. Please let me know if there is any problems. I hope you enjoy this place as much I did.
