Otivar is nestled within the foothills of the Sierra Cazalus and the park of Tejeda, La Almijara and Alhama. The drive up from Almuñécar gives you a tantalizing introduction to the lush green, mountain air of the village and is an ever-popular area for many visitors and locals alike.
At the beginning of December each year we can look forward to the Fiestas de Otivar, in honor of the Inmaculada Concepción (Immaculate Conception)! This beautiful pueblo blanco is perched in the hills about 20 minutes outside of Almuñécar. The village comes alive for 3 days and nights, with events, music, lights, food and fun.
