All right, it's true that Fuerteventura isn't a paradise for shopping, but it does have some secrets that you must know about shopping on the island. The first of these secrets is the fact that the Majorero island, as well as the rest of the Canarian archipelago is exempt from Value Added Tax (VAT), which is stamped on products sold to the public in the rest of Spanish territory, and makes certain kinds of products cheaper on the island. In fact, it's common to buy tobacco, perfumes and alcohol to make the most of this tax-free advantage. Naturally, you also have to remember to check the maximum quantity permitted, as there is a thorough control of this at the airports, in order to avoid contraband. Whatever the case may be, you must know that the island's capital, Puerto del Rosario, and the area of Corralejo are the two large centres for shopping in Fuerteventura.
