      transfer from cruise terminal to hotel

      Barcelona Feb 1, 2017 at 6:51 AM

      A friend and I are coming to Barcelona and needing to get transportation from cruise terminal to hotel. I need to know of any transfer companies in Barcelona and also any recommendations for nice but not too expensive hotels that are centrally located. Also will be in Barcelona for 3 days, so would like recommendations for shopping. Thanks for the info.

      Nice area to stay in?

      Minorca Island Feb 16, 2017 at 2:59 PM

      Hello fellow travellers!
      We're a family of four going to Menorca for a week in July - we've never been before and would appreciate advice on where to look for accommodation. We're looking for a quiet village/town by the sea - away from any big resorts. Any good suggestions? We found a lovely flat in Cala Morell, but we can't quite figure out if there are any restaurants/grocery shops at all, or if it's all residential. The kids are 14 and 17 so might be nice for them if it's not completely deserted :) We'd really appreciate any suggestions!

      Best wishes from Anne :)

      Dolphin cruises

      by Turska Online Now Jan 1, 2016 at 11:19 AM

      How often do you really see dolphins on those cruises? We don't care about the cruising, so it would be a disappointment to go and see none. Do we need to go to some other town to get to cruise? I didn't find any leaving from Santa Cruz with quick search.

      Parking at Santa cruz

      by Turska Online Now Dec 27, 2015 at 5:07 AM

      We found a lovely apartment and with good price in Santa Cruz, and it is located at Calle de la Tolerancia. But there is no parking at the apartment.
      Does someone know how much a weeks parking would be there nearby? At Trip advisor somoen told year ago, you coul park free on the street. Do you think it is safe? We will have rented car, would not want to have anything happened to it.
      There is one other place, more expensive, where the owner tells we coul have parking nearby by 28e/week! But this place looks way better, and is cheaper.

      Buses from airport at night?

      by Turska Online Now Dec 4, 2015 at 5:11 PM

      We just booked flights to Tenerife this week and I was all the time thinking that the airport is at Santa Cruz. Only now I found out there is two airports, and we will land to one at south, 60km from Santa Cruz.. Our fligt lands at 21.40. I have tried to find info how to get to Santa cruz that time. It was told somewhere that bus 111 goes there every 30min, but I didn´t see the actual timetable. Is it so at night also? And how long it takes? We are planning to rent an apartment, and I´m now worried that it would be hard to book in so late. One option would be to stay first night closer to airport, but it kind of feels like wasting time..
      Our flight back home goes at 8.00, so we also need to go back really early. Too bad it wasn´t close to airport.
      We will go at march, but I would like to see the hotels (oe the apartment more likely) allready.

      Transfer by bus

      by Poroshin Online Now Mar 25, 2013 at 9:53 AM

      Hi everybody!
      Who knows the answers to some simple but not for me questions? I’m going to visit Tenerife island this spring. Our plane lands Tenerife Sur(Reina Sofia) in the middle of the day.
      My questions:
      1. Can I use local bus №111 for transferring from airport to hotel? In other words, how far the bus stop is from the building of airport?
      2. If they don’t sell BONO bus cards in a bus where can I buy it before getting a bus? Somewhere in the building of airport? At the bus stop?
      3. What BONO bus card (for 12 or 30 euro) should I choose to buy if I going to have ~4 trips in the island (shopping, zoo,.. return airport) during 10 days for two persons.
      I don't know their rules and local prices..

      Thanks in advance.

      We will be docked at Santa Cruz in April on a transatlantic cruise from 8am - 6pm and would like to explore the island. We were here several years ago on a cruise so have seen what we wanted of Santa Cruz. Does anyone have any information on the local bus system? Where we could go for a few hours or even just a bus ride to see the island sights? Any information or link to help plan our day is greatly appreciated.
