The north of Spain is very different from the south. They are beautiful and full of attractions and activities to enjoy your holiday.

You will dream inside the majestic Arabian Palaces, relax inside their beautiful gardens, and learn from all their museums. One of the most important things for me about traveling is that you will eat so much tasty food that you won't feel guilty about gaining a bit of weight during your visit.


It is all so much worth it!

If you are going to visit a city without spending some time at the beach, Spain is perfect every season.

If you want to mix culture with a nice tan, I advise you to go to the south of Spain and book your holiday between May and October when the temperature is wonderful, and the water is warmer.

You will find golden sandy beaches along the coast to enjoy summer and incredible hiking trails to immerse fully in nature.


There are also the Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean and the closer Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea.

Both are beautiful with their stunning beaches, clear blue water, friendly Spanish people, and last but not least, Spanish food that is a bit different in every area of the country.

Spain is famous as a summer destination, but if you plan to only visit the cities, it can be perfect every month of the year.

Keep in mind that during winter, north and central Spain can be sometimes very cold, windy and rainy.

While the south of Spain has a mild temperature of around 16º C degrees/60º F during the day, and much colder overnight.

There are many options for a perfect vacation in Spain, it just depends on what type of vacation you are looking for. 

In my opinion, a holiday where you spend half of your time exploring a city and the other half relaxing on a beach is the perfect one.

European Travel Alert!

If you are from the US and want to travel to European countries within the Schengen Area, you must fill out an ETIAS visa waiver form before your trip and pay the €7 ($7.25) fees. This easy-to-complete form should give you instant approval, but it's recommended that travelers plan and submit their forms a few weeks before their departure date.
