Pajara is also the largest municipality in the island of Fuerteventura as well as one of the largest in the province of Las Palmas. It is located a main highway linking northeast to Tuineje, Antigua and the northern part of the island. The main industry are agriculture and tourism. The Atlantic Ocean is to the west, south and east, the mountains covers much of the municipality including the north and east. Farmlands dominate the rest of the municipality.

Pajara has schools, lyceums, gymnasia, churches, beaches, a post office, and a square (plaza).

The picturesque little town of Pájara only has a small population despite its administrative importance on the tourist centres of the Jandia Peninsula.

Panjara village (not to be confused the municipality of Pajara) has a population of around 700 and the town (for Fuerteventuran standards) has a fair amount of trees and bushes. There are even lawns and a freshwater swimming pool. Just outside the Town Hall sits a fine old disused 'camel driven' waterwheel, and close to that is the leafy church square.
