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 :)

What is the best part for a single guy 43 to travel to for January , somewhere to relax that's not overly quiet this time of year
Can you recommend a safe, centrally located hotel.
I was contemplating getting off a cruise ship at Cadiz in Mid July. It was my intention to hire a car and travel to Seville, Malaga, Cartegena and Valencia. However inquiries show it could be quite hot then even 47 degrees celsius. Is it that hot and would it be better for me to travel to this region at some other time other than July/August?
The Centro De Dia Para Persones Mayores in Calle Diputacion Provincial is, I understand, a day care centre for the elderly. it has a restaurant and bar. Is this open to the general public i.e. tourists?
We would like to escape to some warmer weather in the next week or so but we are not keen on high-rise apartments in tourist areas. I understand the climate in the north is very different to that in the south, so we would like suggestions for a fairly quiet area in the south, in a pleasant hotel, that offers walks, scenery that I can paint, and good restaurants. Many thanks.
I have booked flights to Gran Canaria in late January. We arrive at Las Palmas airport 17.50.

Is the best place to stay Las Palmas?
Can anyone recommend a hotel or apartment for me and a friend?
Are there any Vters in the area between 20 & 23 January?
Hola Todos .
My friends and me are going to Spain in May. Will spend two weeks in Madrid (want to study Spanish) and after that we have 12 days to see the country. Can someone help me with the itinerary? Would love to see Salamanca, Toledo, Seville. Rhonda, Cadiz, Puerta banus, malaga, granada and majorca. Don't mind skipping Barcelona but we want to see Andalusia really well. Don't want to drive from Madrid to Seville but I don't mind driving around Andalusia (Blablacar is also an option).
I am intending to double back to Barcelona airport (after three days in the city) and rent a car to drive to Denia where we have a time share for 5 nights.
We will have the car for a further three weeks.
What are the points of interest along the way?
What are some of the highlights of the area= scenic - food- landscape photography- street photography?
We probably will bypass Valencia and do that as a day trip when we do not have to drive into a large city.
Appreciate some local knowledge
Does anyone know the best Spa in Oviedo, or any nudist resort?
Where can I park if I want to visit the city centre?
Please, let me know if you have any ideas about those questions.
What would be the most central location to stay in Madrid...preferably in the middle of most tourist attractions.
Thanks a lot in advance

Hi ! I m going alone in Corralejo from the 13th to 20th december. I took some kitecourses but i also want to visit or to do some activities there. Is anyone also there during this time ?

Hi was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for things for young people to do in Palma? Preferably not too expensive. Also we are wanting to go clubbing where is the best best place to go?

I'm wanting to travel from Oriheula to Granda to Córdoba to Seville to Faro to Lisbon to Madrid.
Would love advice on easiest way to travel ? And ideally the cheapest!
If trains which ones are best? Is there a Spain/Portugal train pass you can get for two weeks?
If rental cars are there any recommended companies for one way drop off?
Are there any 1 day or short multi day tours that go to these places or some of them?
Are there any restrictions traveling between to two countries?
Any help is kindly appreciated :)
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!!
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!!
On the various websites I can't seem to find a car rental firm in Cadiz. Particularly near the cruise port terminal.

Insights they might share for Seville and seeing the sights there.
