    • Public transport to Lagoa do Fogo

      Ponta Delgada 18 hours ago

      Hello,

      We (2 people in their 20s) will be going to Sao Miguel in a week. We don't have a driving license and want to use public transport as much as possible. I found a lot of interesting places on the bus map but there is one place I can't find - the Lagoa do Fogo. Is there a bus stop within walking distance to it? Even if we have to walk 1 hour that would still bring us closer.

      We will staying at the Bahia Palace in Agua Alta. I read that there's a hiking trail from the hotel to Lagoa do Fogo from there but it takes 4 hours.

      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Driving from Lisbon to Southern spain on a 9 days trip

      Lisbon Mar 29, 2015 at 8:53 AM

      We are flying to Lisbon and intends to rent a car from Lisbon airport. After 3 days, we will drive to Seville, then to Cordoba,Granada and finally Malaga where we will fly off from Malaga airport.
      1) Will there be any difficult issues we would face if we rent a car from Lisbon to drive into Southern spain?
      2) Is it true that the toll charges in Portugal are very high?
      3) Any advice on hotels we should be staying if we are driving? Is it really very difficult to park if we intend to stay in the city center?
      4) Any recommendation of a reliable car rental company from Lisbon? Does the rented car come with GPS in English language?
      Any other tips/advice on driving from Lisbon to Southern spain is much appreciated.

      Day trips in northern Portugal

      Portugal Mar 31, 2015 at 12:15 PM

      We are planning a trip to Portugal. We will be in the Lisbon/Cascais for most of the time. But we do want to spend a few days in Northern Portugal also. If we decide to spend several days in Porto how easy or difficult will it be to take a day trip Viana do Castelo. We most likely will not be renting a car but want to use public transportation, either a train or a bus.

    • Sea fog in July?

      by HollysGrandma Online Now Sep 25, 2011 at 2:36 AM

      We visited SMP for the first time in the last 2 weeks in August 2010 - grandparents, parents, and grandchildren. We all fell in love with SMP and are planning a return visit in 2012. But I have to say that our first week in 2010 was marred a little bit by the morning sea fog; it burned off by noon but it did mean that the water in the pool was a bit cool!

      So, my question is, does the sea fog occur every year? Is it only in August? Would we be better to come end/July or the beginning of August (we're tied to school holidays). Any advice gratefully received!

    • Swine flu/vaccine

      by shoeman43 Online Now Aug 26, 2009 at 10:09 AM

      Hi, my husband and I are coming to Sao Martinho on 7th October for 6 months initially. The swine flu vaccination will be available in the U.K some time in October. As a diabetic I would be one of the first to receive the vaccination. Can anyone tell me as a matter of urgency a) the current situation with regard to swine flu incidence b) when the vaccination is likely to be available in Portugal and c) whether vulnerable groups will be offered the vaccination first as in the UK.
      Also, can someone find out how long it would take to get the temp residenc permit if we apply straight away, as we may need this to get the vaccination?

      Your help will be very much appreciated!
