How do you get from Azores airport to the city centre?

You will need to adjust to driving on the right side of the road, however! To reach the other islands, you will need to hop on a flight or go by ferry or boat, where available.

The lure of the Azores Islands is that there is plenty to see and do. The countryside is stunning with caldeiras, ancient lava tubes, crater lakes, and ocean views. There are some unique activities, such as the running of the bulls in Terceira. The bulls run down the streets, so be sure to plan ahead for a safe observation seat. Another popular option is the hot springs. Most Azores visitors agree that the cuisine makes the trip special. Although the Azores Islands are a region of Portugal, the food is decidedly their own. There are a few items you definitely should try while you are there, such as alcatra, massa sovada, local cheeses, and tons of fresh seafood that just came off the boats. For a unique treat, give the cracas a try – it might seem strange to eat a barnacle, but they are amazing!
