    • Pizzeria near Paseo Maritimo?

      Benalmádena Feb 7, 2015 at 7:06 AM

      I think that's the name of the area at least, it is the beach near the Puerto Marina area? There used to be a nice pizzeria at the very beginning of the restaurant area, just next to the opening to get down to the beach, that my family used to LOVE. We are finally going back this summer after almost 10 years, and I was wondering if anyone can tell me if it's still there? (Google maps still shows the blue tops as it used to be so I have some hope?)

      Tarifa (Cadiz) Feb 2, 2015 at 8:43 AM

      For a visit to Tarifa during the second week of March - would like to visit Baelo Claudia. How can one visit this place other than by private car? Is there a tour? Is it possible by public transport? If not, is there a car rental place in Tarifa? All the places I have looked at are for pick-up in either Jerez or Cadiz - not practical for one day!

      How can we travel from Seville to Lisbon

      Sevilla Feb 4, 2015 at 6:09 AM

      Hello VTers
      Can anyone please advise me. My friend and I have plans to travel in Spain and Portugal this spring. We arrive in Seville (Sevilla) and we have booked five days in Seville to explore the city and environs.
      However we also want to travel to Rondo? Is this feasible in a day?
      Secondly we want to also visit Cadiz and Jerez de la Frontera.
      Eventually we want to end up in Lisbon (Lisboa).
      I have reading the Lonely Planet guidebook and have been on line to try to find a way we can travel between Seville and Lisbon, by bus or by train, but can not find any information.
      Would people think it would be a good idea to stop over in Cadiz and/or Jerez and continue our journey to Lisbon. I think I have found the Spanish railway finishes Huelva and the Portuguese starts Faro and there is a bus between the two.
      Please help and advise.

      We will be in Almeria just for one day in May as part of a cruise. I have done considerable research and hope that locals or recent visitors can assist me. I would like to see the Alcazaba and points of interest in the old town. I have been told there is a tourist office in town but I don't have the location. can someone direct me from the cruise ship? How far a walk is it to the Alcazaba? Is it a steep walk or a gradual one? How long would it take in a casual walk (2-3 miles per hour)?

      Train to Granada?

      by leics Online Now Dec 12, 2008 at 12:32 PM

      I'm pondering a visit to Almeria in the spring (a budget carrier has opened a new route from my local airport).

      I know there are trains to Granada. I have two questions:

      1. Will I need to buy tickets in advance or can I assume that the Almeria> Granada trains will be pretty uncrowded (I don't mind standing all the way).

      2. Is a daytrip to Granada feasible, or would I be better to plan for a few days based there?

      Also, it's possible I'll be visiting over Easter. Should I expect restaurants etc to be closed for the holidays at any point, and what effect will Easter (Good Friday/Easter Sunday etc)have on transport, if any?

      Thanks in advance for the help.

      Thanks in advance........

    • Urgent: Accomodation Required 23rd July

      I've just joined Virtual Tourist; I have an urgent problem and would HUGELY appreciate any help...

      I've found out this evening that the villa where my family and our friends (8 of us) were sue to stay next week has a problem: the pool has leaked and we can't go there. With this in mind I am desperate to find accomodation in MOJACAR for 8 people from Monday 23rd July to 2nd August - or maybe from 23rd for 1 week as we may be able to return early. As we only found out tonight we've not been successful so far in finding somewhere. We need a pool, air con, and prefereably a decent location.

      My apologies if this is not the right place to post - but I face the prospect of very disappointed children and friends if we can't find anywhere.

      My email is - or if anyone can help my mobile in the UK is 07802 925 449.

      I know this is an odd request, but I'm really trying anything at this late stage. Any sugggestions MOST welcome.

      Hi we are staying at the Vera beach club shortly and wanted to hire a car for a few days but we do not have a credit card and everywhere I have rang or looked on the internet will allow you to pay for the car hire by debit card before you travel but when you go to pick your hire car up apparently you have to leave your credit card details as a deposit and pay for the fuel. Does anyone know of any car hire places in Vera or nearby Garracha or Mojacar that will take cash (euros) as payment for the fuel and do not need to take your credit card details?
