How about some flamenco in Almuñécar & La Herradura for that authentic Spanish experience? If you are just visiting the area or perhaps you live here and have guest coming to stay, either way you should make some time for drinks, tapas and a flamenco show. We will share some of our favorite flamenco shows in town, which should have that local flair you are looking for.
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.
If you have little ones, you are bound to be seeking out a place for them to burn off a little energy. We share with you the Almuñécar playgrounds and parks, with a few extras thrown in as well.

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!
