Venue and accommodation



Conference venue in Santa Cruz de La Palma.

The conference will be held in the building of the Real Club NŠutico in the centre of Santa Cruz de La Palma. There are two hotels nearby, the Hotel Marítimo and the Aparthotel Castillete, which provide good accommodation at reasonable prices (see below). For participants who will bring their families, we can recommend the four star Hotel H10 Taburiente Playa or the three key Apartments H10 Costa Salinas in Los Cancajos. Los Cancajos is a quiet beach resort located between La Palma airport and the capital Santa Cruz de La Palma. The distance from Los Cancajos to either of these two is only about 4 km, and there is a half-hourly bus service all day between Santa Cruz-Los Cancajos-Airport and back. For students or other people on a slim budget, we recommend the Pension La Cubana, located in the very centre of Santa Cruz, just down the road from the conference venue. See the bottom of this page for rates.

NB: Participants must make their own reservations before the 1st of April 2005, and preferably as soon as possible!. For cancellations please contact the hotel directly, no charges apply.
