What to do in Spain

It would take a lifetime to uncover everything that Spain has to offer. If you're in the mood for art, Madrid has the Prado, Barcelona the Picasso and Salvador Dali Museums, and Bilbao the Guggenheim. In Barcelona you can also immerse yourself in the city's laid back culture and wonderfully weird Gaudi architecture. Pamplona, of course, has the running of the bulls and in Galicia is the Santiago de Compostela, the burial place of St. James and the most beautiful cathedral in the country. Meanwhile, cities like Granada, Cordoba, Toledo, Cadiz, and Seville are full of history and architectural wonders. And of course, the Mediterranean coast offers some of Europe's most stunning coastline and pristine beaches.

Best time to fly to Spain

The only bad time to go to Spain is the winter, from roughly November to February. During this time the northern and central areas of the country are cold and uncomfortable. While the Mediterranean is relatively mild during the winter, many hotels are closed as are the beaches. High season is June to August, which means great weather and huge crowds of tourists. High season also sees rooms and flight prices increase substantially. The makes spring and fall the best times to visit: you'll be able to enjoy great weather and also have an easy time finding a hotel to stay in. Keep in mind, however, that local festivals can drive up prices in some areas even outside of the high season, so plan accordingly.

Airports in Spain

Spain has quite a few international airports, with the ones in Madrid and Barcelona fielding the most international connections. Most of the world's major airlines fly to these two airports and from either city you can easily get a connecting flight to anywhere else in the country. Other major airports are at Majorca, Malaga, Gran Canaria, Alicante, Tenerife, Ibiza, Valencia, and more.

Tips

The Spanish way of life is a lot more relaxed than what you may be used to. While siestas aren't as common as they used to be, lunch breaks are typically quite long and many businesses will close for a few hours in the afternoon. Dinners are also eaten later than in North America, usually around 8:00 or 9:00PM and later during holidays. Also, while Spanish is spoken throughout the country, regional identities remain strong, especially in Catalonia and the Basque Country, both of which have their own languages and independence movements. Respect these regional differences and avoid topics concerning independence unless the person you are talking to brings it up first.
