Costa del Sol in December

Jump to last reply

First visit since 1998. Dec. 18 - 25, based at the Marriott Playa Andaluz, with car Last minute research assist requested:

Last time, we visited Granada, Sevilla, Gilbraltar, Malaga (some), Rondo, Mijas and a couple other white towns. Definitely plan to hit Cordoba this time, might repeat Sevilla.

Other suggestions please. We're active 60's -- enjoy art, architecture, history, culture, amateur (!) travel photography, museums, Judaica, walking, hiking ... oh! and eating (I MISS ajo desperately), so the Costa del Sol off-season is obviously ideal. Speak intrepid tourist Spanish, read well enough to tackle untranslated museum labels etc. Going off the beaten track doesn't faze us.

We didn't spend much time in Malaga itself - any recommendations there? We did not get east of Malaga or west of Gilbratar -- Nerja intrigues me, also Montefrio, from Lawrence Boehme's material (great architectural descriptions). Mountain walks anywhere in the region?

So, what do you suggest? Things to see and do and where to eat. Preferred guidebook/map?? (and our plane Christmas Day isn't til 4 pm -- any brainstorms for how to spend the time that day, not in church?) [and thanks for the links in the guidebook thread]
