Places Of Interest
Depending on what you’re after, Spain is a year-round destination. The ideal months to visit are May, June and September. Whilst if you're planning on heading to the south of the country, to say the Costa del Sol, then April and October are also good months to visit for good weather.
If you aren't one for busy tourist destinations and packed beaches, then we'd suggest you avoid visiting at peak season, which is between July and August. At this time of year, temperatures can be known to get unpleasantly hot inland too.
Spanish winters (December to February) are generally quite mild, especially if you head to one of the Canary Islands. Thanks to their positioning off the African coast, these islands offer warm weather 365 days a year.
Spanish cuisine has now influenced many countries across the world, and there's a good reason for it. Being the home and history of Paella, Tapas and other rich home cooked foods.
Popular foods include tortillas, chorizo, sausages, stews, chickpeas, seafood, beans, potatoes and cheese. These ingredients often make up some of Spain's most loved traditional dishes such as paella, Iberian pork, Frito and Chuletillas.
Although these dishes can vary from region to region, in almost every holiday resort you'll find unique restaurants each serving up something traditional. Although, the real beauty of eating out in Spain, is that you're never far from your favourite home comforts too. If you choose to spend your time away in Spain's popular party destinations, you won't be far from fast food joints and places to get hold of an English fry up.
Your passport must be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. No additional period of validity beyond this is required. However, it is always sensible to have a short period of extra validity on your passport in case of any unforeseen delays to your departure.
