A guide to nightlife in Costa Almeria

Costa Almeria may not be one of the Mediterranean’s hottest nightlife spots but it does have a decent range of late night entertainment venues available including Spanish tapas bars and salsa dancing spots. Spain‘s bars and restaurants stay open longer than other European countries as the Spanish generally eat their last meal of the day much later.
