What’s The Best Portable Heater? Look For An Estufa!

If you are new to Spain or just moved to a new place, which is colder than you are used to, then you may want a heater (estufa).  Yes, Costa Tropical has a mild winter, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t cold.  Mild means we don’t have 2 feet of snow and the temp doesn’t drop below zero.  No matter what, just having a cup of hot chocolate doesn’t always do the trick.  Sometimes you need a little more to help keep you warm.
