Costa del Sol
Explore Spain: it is yours to enjoy, explore and experience. Relax and explore sunny Andalucia Province with its sandy beaches, villages nestled on hilltops and magical Moorish palaces. Stay in one of the lovely nearby seaside resort towns, elegant hotels, comfortable apartments or maybe try a delightful coach tour. The choice is yours.
On your Spain holiday, you set the pace. Sunbathe on the beach and enjoy great shopping along famous San Miguel Street in Torremolinos. In the evening, head to the festive “La Carihuela” for traditional seafood dinner or duck into a bar for delicious tapas. In Spain, you will find good value that makes your Canadian dollar go further.
See the treasures of Andalucia… and beyond. Along with the enchantment of the Mediterranean, the Costa del Sol offers the vacationer a number of fascinating day trips. Rent a car or go touring with a guide. Lovely coastal routes lead to whitewashed villages with flower-decked balconies and winding cobbled streets. Travel to Seville, the glorious Moorish capital of Grenada or visit British Gibraltar.
One of the most famous holiday islands in the world Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands and is located just 125 km off the coast of Africa. It enjoys a glorious year round climate that produces vast scenic contrasts running from tropical beauty in the north to arid barren landscapes in the south.
The magnificent Mount Teide, the tallest peak in Spain, provides a constant reminder of Tenerife’s volcanic heritage. Visit the oldest tourist centre in the Canaries, Puerto de la Cruz on the north coast. The old harbour retains an old world charm with its quaint little squares. A visit to the resort at Martinez Lake is also a must. Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the largest city on the island, is an important commercial centre. These cities come alive during the annual Carnival in February when the party never stops. The famous, modern resort areas of Playa de las Americas and Los Cristianos in the south are always alive with international visitors who come for the sun, the sea and a relaxing atmosphere.
