Spain Trip Report

Spent the last 2 weeks of June 2003 in Spain. Felt our itinerary was nearly perfect, except for wanting another day in Cordoba. Hotels and highlights are listed below, for more info on cities/villages, search for trip reports by individual city names (i.e. Madrid trip report).

Europcar rental 11 days/$278 including CDW @

Madrid 2 nights Hotel Carlos V 100 Euros @ great location & service. Highlights - Pub tour, Royal Palace,Madrid Vision bus tour, Plaza Mayor, Mercato

Granada 3 nights Hotel Triunfo 68 Euros @ good location, very nice place. Overall felt that Granada may be under appreciated, we really loved this city! Highlights Alhambra, Albaicin, Plaza Bib Rambla

Vejer de la Frontera 1 night Casa de Calife 95 Euros @ very atmospheric! Most beautiful white hill town.

Jerez Dancing Andalusian Horses show very worthwhile

Arcos de la Frontera 2 nights El Convento 78 Euros @ excellent views, best service.Charming white hill village with very friendly residents! Highlights- Horseback riding through valley

Seville 3 nights Tryp Macarena 50 Euros @ great but not central. Highlights Cathedral, Alcazar, Horse drawn carriage ride, flamenco

Codoba 1 night Macia Alfaros 59 Euros @ very atmospheric. Mezquita was awesome!

Madrid 1 night

@worldexplorer. The information is really useful for my coming trip to Spain. One question to ask about car rental. Did you arrange it before you leave your home country, or you just rent it at the airport. Thanks.

We arranged the car rental in advance. From what I've read on the board, it's almost always advantageous to do so.
