I have been told that Torremolinos is for gays only and that transvestites walk around in the day plus it is rife for drugs.
Should I be thinking of bringing my 6+8 year olds to this area?
Going to Spain next week for 15 nights. I have the first 13 mapped out and it looks like this:
Begin in Toledo (3 nights, but arriving 1700 and leaving 0800 so two full days)
Drive to Cordoba stopping Consuegra and others (2 nights Cordoba)
Drive to Granada (2 nights)
Drive to Malaga (2 nights)
Drive to Ronda (1 night)
Drive to Sevilla via Grazalema and Zahara (3 nights Sevilla)
My question is, how best to spend the last two, considering we need to be in Madrid for an early-morning flight on final day.
1. Drive north, visit Merida and stay at Caceres, final day drive to Madrid, drop car, hotel near airport.
2. Extend stay one day at any of above and spend final day driving from Sevilla to Madrid.
3. Add one night anywhere (hill town, most likely, or additional night Granada?), final day drive Sevilla to Madrid.
Comments? I'm sure there is vast Spain experience on this site. Thanks!

I am looking for suggestions. My friend was supposed to travel with me but has had to back out. Where in Spain is good for NYE? I did BCN last year and was surprised that it seemed there was little to do. Would love a market / fair and possibly some music...prefer to be outside versus a club. Any thoughts?

Just wondering what are the best beaches in or near San Sebastian.
Besides the ones near the harbor, I see the Playa de la Guancha and Playa del Cabrito south of San Sebastian and Playa de Avalo in the north.
The ones in the south are only reachable by foot it seems...Do you recommend going there?
We are spending a week at christmas in Matagorda and some friends have booked to stay in Costa Teguise. Will we be able to walk to them or will we need to get a taxi, and if so do you know roughly how much it will cost? And if the taxis run on Christmas Day?
Hi. We are a family of 4 (including 2 children ages 11 & 14). We want to drive through Spain, starting from Madrid and staying in 2 or 3 locations (minimum 3 nights each place). We definitely want to enjoy the historical parts of Andlucia (Alhambra etc.). Can you suggest a suitable itinerary. Thanks & regards
We are doing a 16 day trip to a few areas in Spain this July flying into Madrid and flying out of Malaga.
We will head down the coast for the last week of the trip and want to stay put in a nice place with a pool etc where we can relax.
Location wise we would like to be able to get around and visit Fuengirola and Mijas etc and be able to get to Malaga airport via train when we are at the end of the trip. So being in an area with good transport links is important.
We are into relaxed and not too touristy places and love good food (proper Tapas is a must) and nice traditional bars. Basically a nice Spanish vibe!
Beaches are not important as long as we have a pool.
Can anyone suggest areas that are worth a look and even hotels/apartments?
Last year we went to Los Boliches in Fuengirola and loved it but wouldn’t mind a change.

I am planning to visit Malaga mid December for 5 days and will be travelling solo. I'm hoping to find a peaceful (but not dead) maybe seaside location where I can relax and unwind, not too urban. Should I stay in Malaga or head to Nerja, Cordoba, Seville Ronda or Estepona? I wont have a car. I have a good basis of Spanish, love tapas and will visit the art museums in Malaga...
thanks for your help!

We're planning to stay in Las Palmas for a week over New Year. Two questions:
1) What part of the city is the best place to stay in? I assume it will be too cold to actually go swimming, but maybe it's still a good idea to stay close to Las Canteras? Basically, we want to stay in an active neighborhood, with lots of people moving around both day and night (restaurants, bars, and shopping). Is the old town better? Or somewhere else?
2) What does people do on New Years eve? Are there any gala dinners, big parties etc we can sign up for?
I'm wondering if there are any good gyms in Vigo with squat racks and barbells. A quick google search showed a bunch of "gyms" with nothing but machines. I train in weight lifting and I would hate to have to stop during my semester abroad.
