South of Spain in mid-August with kids.

Jump to last reply

We are going to Spain for two weeks on the 2nd week of August. We are in the process of constructing our trip itinerary. We are flying to Madrid, and we are renting a car. We are traveling with 2 kids, 5 and 8 years old. The original plan was to drive from Madrid to Barcelona, then Valencia, and head down South, stay on the seaside in close proximity to Granada, head back to Madrid with stops in either Seville and Cordoba, or both. We trying to make the trip fun for both us and the kids, so we don’t want to overwhelm our days with activities. We’ve traveled with our kids before so we now how much we can do in a given day.

I have started researching places and I am very concerned about the temperatures in mid-August in the South. It seems it gets very hot down there. Since we have nothing booked yet, we are starting to consider going North/West (Bilbao, San Sebastian) but our hearts are set on the South. A few questions:

1. Has anyone traveled with kids in August to the South of Spain? Could you please share your experiences?

2. How hot does it actually get? Is it dry and hot or hot and humid? We are from Chicago and it does get hot and humid here (upper 90F)

3. In case we decide to head South, Are there any places/hotels you could recommend (swimming pools/close to the beach)- kids friendly?

4. Places/towns we should avoid?

Any help/advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
