3 weeks in Spain with a child (9 year old boy). Suggestions please!

Jump to last reply

My family is heading to Spain in a few weeks! We are so excited! We are going to be there for almost 3 weeks before we head to Lisbon to catch our return flight.

Some of our choices of destinations are based on being able to use Marriott points for hotel stays (which is much more limited than I expected when traveling with more than 2 people). Also, we have already been to Barcelona, so we decided to skip it during this trip. We are looking for a mix of activities that are appropriate for both kids and adults. Some of our favorite experiences from our last trip were watching our son play soccer with the local kids in the park while trying to speak Spanish (he has been in an immersion program for 3 years). We loved the food market (Las Ramblas) in Barcelona and would love to find other similar (but probably smaller) markets.

If you have any suggestions/ ideas/ tips for us, please let me know.

Here is our proposed itinerary:
2 nights in Madrid.
5 nights in Denia. (Which surrounding towns do you think we should visit?)
2 nights in Toledo (I know it is back tracking, but we are meeting friends.)
1 night in Cordoba
1 night in Granada
1 night in Malaga
4 nights in Marbella
Maybe one night in Cadiz?
2 nights in Seville
2 nights in Lisbon.

Thank you for reading my post and offering any suggestions! It is going to be a wonderful experience!
