Spain travel tips and advice

Travel Guide to Spain


Spain is without a doubt one of the most visited countries in Europe. Hundreds of thousands of tourists explore various locations throughout the country throughout the whole year. Summer is a popular time to visit but just as enjoyable are the winter months for visitors of nearby European countries that experience much colder winter months.

The option to enjoy an island holiday in either the Canary Islands or ones closer to mainland Spain such as Ibiza, Menorca or Mallorca is also an appealing option and each island offers a visitor something different. Relaxing is probably best at Menorca, partying hard is possible at Ibiza and outdoor adventure travel or simply relaxing by a hotel pool can both be done on the Canary Islands.

If visiting one of the Spanish Islands is not appealing to you then I’m sure you will find other options on the mainland of Spain. Popular cities to visit include the capital city of Madrid, the ever-popular Barcelona, Seville, Granada, San Sebastián and Valencia. Things to do in Spain include tasting your way through a delicious tapas tour, go surfing in Tenerife (or any other coastline of Spain), explore the beautiful architecture found in Barcelona (Sagrada Família, Catedral Basílica Metropolitana de Barcelona, Casa Milà and much more), enjoy a hike to Montserrat Monastery, head snow skiing or snowboarding, head game fishing in Spain, watch an el Classico football match between Barcelona and Madrid plus much more.

Below are travel tips, hacks, advice and adventure stories that will ensure you are ready to travel any destination in Spain.
