I'd like to make a trip to Andalucia this year, eight days flying in and out of Malaga. Is there a pretty good chance that the weather will be decent? I'm coming from Chicago, so I'm fine with fairly cool weather; I'm just wondering if it's likely to be rainy and gloomy the whole time. Also, if anyone can suggest a good itinerary I'd be grateful.
I'm currently looking for a hotel in San Sebastian, but i have found out, that the prices are extremely high compared to the rest of Spain. The selection of hotels is also very small. It is the same issue in Bilbao. The cheapest i have found so far in San Sebastian is a one started hotel at a price of 850 euros for 4 people in a week. Is the Basque country just extremely expensive or has people just booked very early?
I hope you can help me.

Hi all, I am flying to Madrid next week on a one way ticket with plans to fly to Morocco or India after about a month or so in the country. I was wondering if it's common for immigration officials or even the airline to deny entry without a flight ticket out of the country or Schengen Zone. I have a US passport.
Thanks in advance for any info
I am just back home in Canada from a trip to Spain, Portugal and France. Something different happened with ATMs in Spain.
When I was there in 2015: no problem and no difference from other countries in Europe. This year, trying to get Euros, the spanish ATM asked me if I want that money charged to my account in US dollars? I was taken aback and cancelled the transaction. I could not and still can not understand why those Euros should be charged to my canadian bank in US dollars. That would mean…
The Camino de Santiago is a highly recommended 800km walk in northern Spain, which attracts people from around the world. I have walked it twice: once from Saint Jean Pied de Port in France, and once from Prague in the Czech Republic (clocking up approx 3,500km walking distance.)
This summer I plan to walk to Finisterre - on the Atlantic ocean - from Rome.
Anyone interested in this walk may view my (non-commercial) blog: www.mycaminosantiago.com
My partner and I are 21-23 year old Australians and like fairly active holidays with an interest in mostly natural scenery and historical sites, although we also enjoy going out at night to bars etc and meeting new people. We also love hot weather and swimming! Don't mind staying in cheap hotel/hostel.
Planning on visiting spain for about 12 days in August of next year.
Ive sort of planned for:
4 nights in barcelona
3 nights in ibiza
-4 nights in valencia
Hi - has anyone tried out the left luggage locker service in central Madrid - I believe there is one close to Puerta de Sol on calle Jardines 25?
We are travelling to the city next week and will be staying at a hostal closeby
We are looking at a 2 1/2 day break on the way to Christmas at my wife's hometown in Navarra. Thinking of either Cordova or Cadiz. We have been to Cordova but not the latter. It seems like Cordova being in a valley on the edge of mountains might have lower temperatures but Cadiz with damp ocean breezes might be more uncomfortable. Anyone with experience on that?
Also we would be looking to just relax, wander, visit historical sites, art and history museums while eating tipico food. How does…
Hi: I'm going on a 7 day Spanish Pullmantur Barcelona to Roma cruise starting Oct. 29. There will be 5 of us going, my 2 brothers and my husband and 1 sis in law. This is the first trip for my brother alone since his wife passed away too early from ovarian cancer last December. We are in our mid to early 50's/40's. My husband and I are more backpackers than cruisers but...all wines/beers/alcohol are included!
Anyway we will be in Barcelona a day or 2 before and a day or 2 after the cruise…
