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.
If you are wondering about the electricity in Almuñécar and/or Spain. We have some information for you.
There a new service in town and it will help you loads. Yes, we have long-awaited a self-service laundromat, and now we have one!

We know we aren’t supposed to play favorites, but we can’t help it! This is an amazing place to live and we have our favorites in Almuñécar. These are places we feel have the best customer service, food, or care about their clients. They also provide products we would tell our friends use.
You have arrived in Spain, and perhaps you want to get local cell phone service. Where do you go? What do need to buy? This post will provide some tips and strategies for getting connected.
We will cover two potential scenarios that new arrivals face having moved to Spain:
- You have a phone that works in Europe, but you need a Spanish SIM card;
- You need to purchase a new phone that’s compatible with the European networks;
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.
