If you are wondering about the electricity in Almuñécar and/or Spain. We have some information for you.
Almuñécar is a town of about 30,000 people and during the high season that number can nearly triple. While the main part of town is very compact and accessible via foot there is more to it than what a map can show you. There are several Almuñécar neighborhoods that may appear close on a map, but are set in hillsides so could be quite a hike. Each area also has a different look and feel and can be active all year or mainly during the summer months.
As any responsible society should, Spain has a well-developed system of recycling used materials like paper, plastic, or soda cans. You can find recycle bins, receptacles, and containers all over the country.
We know that there are many plastics in use in Spain, but we can at least recycle to help. If you are new to Spain and come from another country the recycle system may be a bit different for you. There are usually a variety of recycle bins scattered around every city, town and even small village. Sometimes many of the recycle bins are grouped together and other times you will see just one or two.
