I just got back from El Hierro. I was told that a taxi would be about 50 Euros. There is a bus you can take. I'm sure it would be much cheaper.
Thank you for the information. I cancelled my trip to El Hierro because of the uncertain ferry schedule. But I'd like to see El Hierro another time.
Hope, you had a good and safe trip.
There used to be a bus from La Restinga departing round
about 7.00 (or a little before) via El Pinar and timed to reach
Valverde by 09.00. Then one could choose to go down toward
the Airport or Estaca on the 12.00 departure but to either one
would need to walk the last part. This could work for the flight
early afternoon back to TFN.
With the prospect of a forty-fifty Euro fare from La Restinga
to Valverde, the economics would suggest that it would be
cheaper to pay 2.24 Euro on 'bus routes 8 and 2 (re-book
at El Pinar) - possibly staying one night in Valverde (for
about 40-50 Euros but offset by shorter stay in La Restinga).
Departures from La Restinga are at 06.40, 10.30, 14.05 and
16.30. With a change in Valverde, the 10.30 is in time for the
14.00 ferry on Monday/Wednesday/Friday (via route 7) or for
the afternoon flight (via route 6). The 06.40 is scheduled to
connect into route 6 in time for the morning flight but has
only a five-minute transfer window in Valverde.
These are examples of how the public transport is much
improved from the old days!
