The Spanish Miracle

There are many historic sites to see throughout Spain that have been built, destroyed and preserved over many centuries. The castle of Tossa de Mar, the streets of Sitges and Nerja's aqueduct are just some of the impressive structures that can still be enjoyed today.

Since then the Spanish Miracle has occurred. This refers to the time between 1959-74 when the country received massive economic growth thanks to the tourism boom. Ever since then Spain has been more than welcoming to visitors from all over the world. The Spanish people are full of passion and charm, and hospitality is a long-standing tradition so you'll be welcomed by locals with open arms.

Waterparks, theme park and zoos

Since tourism is such a thriving industry throughout the Costas in Spain you can be sure that wherever you choose to visit, there will be an exciting tourist attraction not too far away. Waterparks are found all over with more than a couple Aqualands to enjoy while many others feature theme parks of various themes.

The most sought after family attraction by Spanish people and the rest of Europe is the massive Portaventura theme park and resort complex in Costa Dorada.

Exciting nightlife

Spanish nightlife is as versatile as you need it to be with as many opportunities to enjoy a quiet evening underneath the stars as there are lively nightclubs to go wild in.

Some of the popular hotspots for party animals on Spain holidays include the extravagant offering of luxurious Marbella, the cabaret and risqué performances found in the British favourite Benidorm, and the drag shows and nightclubs of the LGBT favourite Sitges.

Spanish favourites

From huge pans of paella to tantalising tapas, Spanish food is unique and best accompanied by a gulp of sangria. Because the Spaniards take an afternoon siesta each day, they eat much later on an evening. You shouldn't be surprised to see restaurants opening as late as 9:00pm but through the day there are also plenty of terrific cafes to enjoy a coffee, snack or an ice cream in.

It's not all local cuisine on offer as the majority of resorts cater for tourists' tastes with a fine selection of international flavour on offer. The sheer amount of restaurants in any given resort means there is usually a meal that suites every guest's preference and wallet.

Getting there

Flight time from the UK to Spain takes between two to three and a half hours depending on where you are flying from and to. All of the destinations are usually well placed by an airport which means transfer times to your resort are usually relatively short.

Hiring a car to get around resorts is made easy by Spain's widespread motorway system.

Costa Brava, Costa Del Sol and Costa Dorada all benefit from Spain's rail network. Many resorts in these regions feature train stations that run regularly towards the nearest large city.
