Every year families from all over Europe and further afield go on holiday to Spain. The popularity of Spanish holidays means that you are almost certain to know someone who treats their family with a trip there on a regular basis.
There are plenty of reasons for taking a break and camping in Spain and there are also some good tips for making the most of your time there.
Do Some Research
You may be going to stay in a resort or an out of town campsite but in Spain there are stunning attractions all round the country to look out for. It is definitely a good idea to spend a bit of time checking out what is within day trip distance. Getting on a local bus and heading off somewhere can be one of the most interesting parts of the whole break.
Learn a Few Words
No one expects you to become fluent in the language for the sake of a fortnight’s holiday but learning a few words could help you get by more easily. If you go to one of the more tourist oriented places then you will probably be able to get by in English but the locals will appreciate you giving their language a try.
Try the Food
Spain is famous for its food these days, and it is well worth trying something while you are there. International food is easily found in most cities and resorts but paella, tortilla, chorizo or some tapas are definitely recommended. An economic choice is to look for family holiday deals on a self-catering basis and check out the local supermarket. A camping trip with a site like keycamp.co.uk is a smart choice to make in this respect.
Check Out Some Culture
You won’t want to go to Spain and miss the chance to see a flamenco show, some local football games and maybe some of the most historic sights in the country. These are the kinds of thing which can add a real Spanish flavour to your trip.
Get Out and About
The final point is a kind of catch all for those people who don’t do any of above. You can still get out and about and enjoy an active holiday. Early morning and evening are the coolest times of day in the summer in Spain and these are fine for going a walk. Whether you fancy a stroll on the beach or a walk into town you can stretch your legs and see some of the place while you are at it.
