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!

The Almuñécar Plazas are an important part of daily life. We will share with you some of the most popular Spanish Plazas, along with photos, and a map with the location. These plazas not only offer a place to find shops and restaurants, they are also social gathering spots. These are the outdoor living rooms for the town to enjoy and meet up with friends.

Tradition, processions, remembrance, commemoration, brotherhoods, sisterhoods, candles, floats, a variety of costumes and more, are all part of what you will experience during AlmuñécarSemana Santa (Holy Week)!

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.
