We all have different learning styles and preferences when learning something new. It is no different when you want to study Spanish. Some of us prefer one-to-one Spanish lessons and some prefer group Spanish classes. While some like to get into the details of grammar, others prefer just to listen, learn and chat. Is it best to have intensive Spanish lessons, occasional lessons, play games or just meet up with friends once a week? Only you know what you need and which will work best for you and perhaps it is a combination of them all!
Insurance in Spain
We think it is very important to ensure you are covered while you are away in a foreign country. You really can’t predict if you will need cover in advance, so it is best to have peace of mind when you are traveling. It is a good idea to check out your options of Insurance in Spain. We will review both travel insurance and medical insurance.
If you own a car in Spain, eventually you’ll need to renew its roadworthiness certification (Spain ITV renewal). Known as the M.O.T. in the United Kingdom, or the D.O.T. in the United States, the roadworthiness sticker is named ITV in Spain (Inspección Técnica de Vehículos) . Renewing ITV in Spain is actually very straightforward. We provide complete instructions below specific to ITV Granada or Costa Tropical, but much of it applies the general process of renewing your ITV in Spain as well.
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 recycling bins are grouped together and other times you will see just one or two. Let’s learn a little more about recycling in Spain!
When recycling in spain, the most common bins are those for Glass and Plastic. You will find fewer for the Paper, Oils and Used Clothing.
As you meander the streets of La Herradura or stroll along the beach or paseo, eventually you will likely stop for some tapas. We’ll help you find scrumptious tapas in La Herradura. It may just seem like any regular restaurant from the outside, or it may feel more like a beach-side cafe, but either way they are going to have some Spanish tapas for you! Just sit down and order a drink to let the magic happen of the Spanish lifestyle happen.
While we aren’t aware of any dedicated vegetarian restaurants in La Herradura, there are many who are vegetarian friendly. If they don’t specifically have something on the menu, be sure to ask to alter their menu items. For example, even when you order a salad, you need to be careful, as many come with ham or tuna. Just specify when you order, as all of the La Herradura restaurants are very friendly.
For a complete shopping experience, sometimes you need to visit a big city. We will describe how to get to the new Centro Comercial Nevada shopping Granada from Almuñécar. The Nevada shopping center [Centro Comercial Nevada] is located in Granada and is on the southeast side of the city, so that means easy access from Costa Tropical. With approximately 120,000 square meters of commercial area, and with 200+ stores, numerous restaurants, and an 8-cinema cineplex, there is plenty to see, do, and eat.
Are you looking for Spanish lessons in La Herradura, Spain? Look no further, as Centro El Mar will offer you far more than your standard classroom lessons. Instead you will get an experience to remember through cultural workshops, field trips, conversation and immersion. Of course they also offer the standard Spanish classes in groups, private lessons in person and via Skype as well. If they don’t offer what you want, they may just be able to create it for you!
The holiday season is upon us and there is so much going on! It is magical to experience Christmas in Almuñécar & La Herradura, but it is tough to find out the when and the where for many things. We’ve decided to share what we know here for you and as we learn more, we will just keep adding to this same post. Many places don’t publicize until a few days prior to the event. We aren’t sure why, but as soon as we find out more, we will continue to add to this post.
