Hotels in Spain

Discover Spain

If heat and festive atmosphere attract you, summer is your season to enjoy Spain. From June to September, temperatures in various areas of Spain, especially in the south, range from 25-35°C. It's ideal for sunbathing on the Costa del Sol, Costa Brava, the Canary Islands or the Balearic Islands, to mention just a few of the countless coastal regions of the country. However, keep in mind that hotel and flight prices increase significantly, and getting last-minute availability can be complicated.

Lovers of celebrations will be delighted to know that events like La Tomatina in Buñol or the Carnival of Tenerife are must-see events. For those seeking a more cultural and tranquil experience, Holy Week offers processions that are authentic works of art in motion.

If your goal is to avoid crowds and save some money, autumn and spring are ideal times to visit Spain. Temperatures are more moderate, ranging from 15-25°C, and tourist places are less crowded. Additionally, during a brief period in spring, you can admire the cherry blossoms in the Jerte Valley.

Planning a trip to Spain can be as exciting as it is challenging, especially if you're looking to get the most value for your money. If you decide to travel during the popular summer season or during important festivities like San Fermines, the Feria de Abril, Semana Santa, or La Tomatina, it is essential to book at least 3-4 months in advance. This early preparation is crucial as the demand for hotels and flights increases, causing prices to rise.

If you're looking to save money and experience something truly local, there is a very Spanish tip you could consider. Some hotels in Spain offer a "resident rate," originally designed for locals. However, during the low season, there are establishments willing to offer this discounted rate to tourists.

When it comes to flights, an economical strategy could be to opt for secondary airports, such as Girona if your destination is Barcelona. These airports often have more affordable fares. But remember to take into account the additional costs and the time you will need to reach your final destination from these alternative points.

If you thought that Spain was limited to sunny beaches and delicious paella, you will be surprised to discover that this country offers much more. Every corner hides stories and wonders that go beyond the world-famous cities. For example, Cádiz envelops you with its Andalusian essence and rich maritime history, while in Zaragoza, the majesty of the Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar will leave you breathless.

Undoubtedly, the Alhambra in Granada and the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona are national emblems, but there are many other landscapes worth exploring. One example is the Ordesa National Park in the Pyrenees, a paradise for trekking enthusiasts with its impressive canyons and waterfalls.

For art and modern design enthusiasts, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, with its avant-garde architecture, is a must-visit. And if you are looking for challenges and contact with nature, the Canary Islands offer you everything from diving in crystal clear waters to ascending Mount Teide, a summit that seems to touch the sky.

Spanish gastronomy is an adventure in itself: from the hearty Asturian fabada in the north to the refreshing Andalusian salmorejo in the south. And when it comes to celebrations, the April Fair in Seville and the Fallas in Valencia are festivals that will immerse you in vibrant and colorful traditions.
