Climate Spain’s climate varies from temperate in the north to dry and hot in the south. Climate can be extremely distinctive from one corner to another. Overall, the coastal regions in the South and Eastern parts of Spain are excellent to visit all year round thanks to the Mediterranean climate what’s mean mild temperatures and long days. Northern Spain is much colder then the South, while Central Spain stays hot and dry due to its location on a plateau.

Suggested Clothing: Light- to mediumweights and rainwear, according to the season.It’s easy to fin best weather during your spain travel.

Cuisine is rich in fish dishes, octopus and seaweed. Due to the high temperature grown there citrus, dates, eggplants, courgettes and tomatoes. Spain is famous for its wine and olive oil. If you’re there try the goat and sheep cheeses (especially Manchego) and raw hams Jamon iberico and serrano peppers. If I have to recommend Spanish dishes cuisine that would be very boring… just paella, paella, paella. I love all varieties of this dish (chicken, seafood, traditional saffron and black with squid ink). Besides Paella recommend the soup with tomatoes and peppers (Gaspacho) and omelette with potatoes (tortilla de patatas). If you suddenly get hungry then you go the bar and order sangria and small snacks served on warm and cold (tapas). For dessert, eat Crema Catalona or spanish Creme brulee and fried in oil Churro.

How to Save Money

1. Think TAPAS! If you on really budget Trip eat Tapas instead of having dinner or lunch. Tapas are awesome especially when it’s very hot. This way is much cheaper as well.

2. Grab a Day Menu „Set Menu” The Spanish eat their big meal of the day during lunch time. Most restaurants offer a menu of the day from Monday to Friday for lunch only. If you ion Budget you can really eat nice food for afordabale price. The menu of the day usually consists of two plates. The first plate may have an appetizer, soup, or salad. The second plate will contain the main dish, such as meat or fish, accompanied by a garnish like fries. Bread and dessert are also usually included. Many include a glass of wine or beer. Many restaurants have several menus of the day, each at a different price. When one enters a restaurant, it is worthwhile to ask for the menu (ask for la carta) and read all of the special offers. Lunch is usually served between 1 pm and 4 pm. Can cost 8-13 euros depends of local and location.

3. Choose Free Attractions If you’re looking into what to see in Spain you have to know that some museums have their free open day weekly . It’s worth doing your research to find them, that can cut your spending.

4. Train is awesome but…. Spainish railway is very expensive, think about buses they are much more cheaper. Now you can find connections to spain with MegaBus, and tickets even for 1 euro.

5. Do you want discover everything? If yes why not to take City Passes. That can give you freedom of movement „free transport” and you can save fortune on single attractions tickets.

3. Beach activities You can find thousands of beaches in Spain but maybe good example is  Barceloneta Beach is a man-made artificial beach built just before the Barcelona Olympics. You can of course hire sunbeds and parasoll from the bars and restaurants near the Beach. Sands have to be transported from elsewhere to the beach each year as sands are regularly washed away out to the sea.
