The streets are lit, the stores are open, the city is buzzing with people, and the ambiance is everywhere! It’s late night shopping Almuñécar style! This event takes place year, but 2022 has some extras in store for us!
If you like to find a good bargain, then the Almuñécar Sunday Market or Rastro Almuñecar Domingo is the place to be! Every Sunday you can socialize, browse and purchase the most unusual things. This is a flea market dedicated to antiques and second-hand items! Located in the fairgrounds near the Blas Infante Arches, it has now grown to take up the entire lot on both sides. This market is frequented by so many people now, it is just as popular as the Friday Market.
There are several main Almuñécar Supermarkets or Grocery Stores in the area, including La Herradura, Motril and Vélez-Málaga . There are also several specialty markets or small stores where you will be able to find imported or international products. A few of these are open for limited hours on Sundays. Check for details in the Almuñécar Directory now.
We all love a good bargain, but it is even better to discover a good find at a flea market or thrift shop! There is something fun about rummaging through second-hand goods to find that hidden gem you’ve been looking for or didn’t even realize you needed. We also list a few charity shops where you can make purchases, as well as locations to make donations of clothing and your household goods.
Escape to a slightly bigger city and experience a day trip from Almuñécar with many things to do in Motril Spain. Motril is the second largest city in the Granada Province, with a population of more than 60,000. Yes, this isn’t a big city by most standards, but it is the biggest on the Costa Tropical. Many of us know it as the place to take care of our paperwork as foreigners, but there is so much more to the city. We want to share with you some of the things to do in Motril you can do as a day trip or combine with your trip to the Foreigner’s office.
No matter where you travel the prices for a checked bag are usually very expensive. Many people are now trying to travel with carry on luggage only, but it can be difficult to navigate all of the different carry-on luggage sizes for Europe. Each carrier has their own rules about weight and dimensions, so we will share all of that with you as well as what we think is the best carry on luggage for Europe.
Christmas Markets 2021
We just love the holiday season and there are plenty of Christmas markets to choose from. We have listed those we are aware of in Almuñecar, La Herradura, Motril, Nerja and more. If they looked good, we’ve added them to our list. Let us know if you have one we should add.
Summer is fast approaching, and you know what that means…more people. More people means more traffic, and that means parking can be a real headache. If you’re the walking type of person, then more power to you. This post will cover a relatively new transportation platform that’s much better than cars when it comes to getting around, and it’s much greener. I’m referring to electric bikes!
We all love the lifestyle, Mediterranean food, and culture when living in Spain or spending our holiday on the Costa Tropical. But, sometimes we just crave something a little different. Many times we are looking for international restaurants and aren’t sure where to go or how to find them. Perhaps you are just looking for that one ingredient or global food item to make your own dish at home?
