      time of meals

      Madrid 7 hours ago

      I'm strongly get used to have a substantial meal during the day, rather 3-5 p.m. not 6-9 p.m. How about Madrid? Which style is preferred in the capital city, what restaurants offer to tourists? The most terrifying and frustrating way of eating habit for me is only coffee in the morning, light lunch at 12 or 1 p.m. than long time nothing ....and a huge meal, let's say, at at 9 p.m. or later. It would be lovely to dined out in the afternoon. Is it possible? I do not mean tapas or snacks I mean the regular two-course meal.
      By the way, are there any buffet restaurants in Madrid ?

    • Santander to Somo - practical? Taxi cost?

      by jjaay Online Now Sep 8, 2012 at 6:55 AM

      I was thinking of going to Somo for some surf lessons.
      Though I head Somo is very quiet at night - so it makes sense to go to Santander for the nights. I assume the city would be nice.

      Just wondering.

      a) I think the last ferry is not too late (like 9pm) - so how much would a taxi be from Santander to Somo in the nights?

      b) Would it be better to stay in Somo - or in Santander and just commute to Somo in the morning for the surf lessons?

      Any advice appreciated

I would rather get a rich cultural experience with a local family than stay at a hostel. Can anyone recommend a family or a site (I've tried a few and didn't get many Santander matches or they were too pricey). I'm from Florida, USA, 25 years old, female, don't smoke, and wouldn't need any fancy cleaning/driving services, just a nice family to host me for a few nights and give me some advice about travel in the area and maybe become my friends! I speak descent Spanish but an English-speaking family would be a plus.

      I am going to Santander at the end of March and I'm now searching for a place to stay for 2 nights. There are many hotels and hostels available and as this is my first time to Santander, I don't know at which area should be the suitable place for me to stay.

      I would like to stay in an area where is comfortable to find local foods to eat, shops for shopping, food and fruit markets, and near public transportations. And if possible near the beach (but not mandatory).

      Could you please recommend me which areas of Santander or which beaches are the suitable place for me to stay?

      Are there buses from the Ryanair airport to that area?

      Could you also point out on the map where is the city centre of Santander?

      Bus station confusion ... which bus station???

      by nomad7890 Online Now Jul 28, 2009 at 4:30 PM

      I have been looking at ways to get from Santander to San Vicente de la Barquera. I found La Cantabrica, and this station is supposed to be at c/Cádiz & Méndez Núñes., across the Renfe Station - center of town near the Cathedral. I only have weekday schedules for this company.

      There's also an Alsa which has weekdays and weekends ... station appears to be there.

      * I will need to make bus - train connections twice and need to untangle this *

      Guess one of my problems is that Google maps shows the little railroad tracks a little too far back from where the station is. I have actually walked out of this station (the FEVE). It looks like both Feve and Renfe share the space?

      Any suggestions wether I should take La Cantabrica or Alsa?

      Are the directions to the bus station right?
