Hi Alexis, We have been going to Lanzarote for about 10 years 3-5 times per year and it took us several visits to find the main street. You have been given good advise but I just thought I would add to it to see if it helps.
When you get of the bus you walk along towards the Gran Hotel (worth going inside to have a look around, excellent resturant on the 17th floor good bar and toilet facillities and they don't mind if you use them. They also have a few designer shops and a fantastic jewellers very expensive though). Continue to walk along, the pavement bends to the right carry on walking you will see a small bar walk past this and then you will see a park (sometimes on this square there is a market usually on Monday or Tuesday) then you will see another bar with a green and white canopy. On the road in front of this is the Taxi rank and a zebra crossing. cross the road here and the street in front of you is the main street. Happy Shopping.
p.s The bar near the Zebra is a good spot to sit to watch the world go by whilst you wait for a taxi after your shopping trip. but if you look out to sea you will spot a castle, you can get to it by foot if you walk over the bridge well worth a look if your into that kind of thing.
