    • Family Vacation Help

      Spain Nov 24, 2016 at 10:32 PM

      Hi, everyone,

      I'm hoping to get a little help with a possible vacation to Spain this coming summer for two or three weeks. I'm pretty lost so far in terms of cities, neighborhoods, etc. It would be my husband, our kids (6 and 4), and me. In an ideal world, I'd love a trip that:

      -allows us to spend time with locals (I have read that kids often play outside until late at night, and I'd love my kids to experience that, especially since my son goes to a Spanish immersion school)
      -is close to the beach for at least part of the trip
      -does not require renting a car
      -is close to kid-friendly activities

      If you have any advice for me (the more specific, the better!), I'd greatly appreciate it!!

    • Best hotel to stay at with rooftop bar

      Barcelona Nov 26, 2016 at 11:31 PM

      I am trying to stay at an affordable hotel with a nice rooftop bar in Barcelona. I would prefer something closer to Las Ramblas or Placa Cataluna, I believe. I really wanted to stay at Villa Emilia, however, it is sold out for my visit in September. Any advice for a hotel that would be in a $150-$200/night price range would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!!

    • Best place to stop for a night between San Sebastian & Granada?

      Spain Nov 13, 2016 at 8:26 AM


      I will be driving from San Sebastian to Granada at the end of June and would like to stop somewhat half way. It looks like Madrid is about half way, but I have never been there so I don't know what driving there is like. Can you recommend a place maybe just outside that city that would still make it easy to get into with public transportation or maybe another city that would be worth visiting for a day?

      We will also be going to Valencia for about a week in early June. Any recommendations for good neighborhoods to stay in? We will have our small dog, and love to be able to walk to markets and restaurants. Not really big nightlife people,

      Thanks so much!

    • Where should I stay?

      La Rioja Mar 25, 2009 at 10:16 AM

      I need to be in Logrono for a couple of days in mid May. I'm not sure that I want to stay in a hotel in Logrono since it seems like such a small town. I'm debating between staying in Pamplona, San Sebastian or Madrid.

      How far is Logrono from each of these places (I'll have a car) and would you recommend one over the other? And what's the beach/weather like in San Sebastian in May?

      Thanks in advance!

      Hi folks! I am from Asia and have always been a fan of Spainish wine. Now that I am going to Spain, I will not miss going to the wineries! As I will be going around Spain, I need to know which days the wineries are opened so that I can plan the my entire trip. In mid May, are the wineries opened for visits / wine tasting on Saturdays and Sundays? Also, what are the usual opening hours? Also if the wineries are usually closed on other days other than Saturday/Sunday, please tell me which day too. Thanks
