Two weeks in Andalucia too much?

Jump to last reply

While we're being slow to choose our destination for our April vacation (tho' perusing all the options is fun and I'm learning a lot!), we're leaning toward Andalucia. Am wondering, tho', whether we should be considering adding a part of Portugal or Morocco to our potential plan.

We'll have two weeks, including travel days from the east coast of U.S. I mentioned to a friend from work that we were thinking of Andalucia, and she (who is from northern Spain) thought that was way too much time, even when I explained what slow travelers we are.

We don't get going super early, we love to linger in cafes and over meals, and we love to wander neighborhoods and stop in this shop or that market, as well as see tourist sites. It's possible that she just can't comprehend how slow we are! But then again, maybe she's right...so I'd love to hear the thoughts and experiences of those who've been.

Also if you've been, and could share whether you rented a car or not, and if you were happy or not with your choice? We'll most likely be with friends so it would be great if we didn't need a car too much and could all wander on our own some and meet up for certain sites or meals. Otoh, tho', I wouldn't want to feel we missed getting to explore neighborhoods or some off the beaten path areas, just because we didn't rent a car for at least some of the time (we were very happy NOT to have a car in places like Rome and London. we were very happy to HAVE a car in U.S.cities like Denver and Pittsburgh, for outlying areas and day trips).

Thanks in advance for any help!
