Andalucia is Spain’s largest region and it’s the one which evokes the most powerful images of a country famed for its flamenco, fiestas, bullfighting and raw passion. It’s a region blessed with achingly beautiful countryside, majestic mountains and a 900 kilometre coastline which has made it one of the world’s favourite holiday destinations.
Whether you’re into inflatable banana boats and all night laser discos or magnificent Moorish architecture and medieval villages seemingly frozen in time, Andalucia has an irresistible allure.
The Costa Del Sol region enjoys a pleasant all year round Mediterranean climate with extensive bright sunny days throughout the year. Temperatures in winter are typically between 15 to 25 degrees Celsius. In summer the temperatures are typically above 30 degrees Celsius, however the low humidity means the heat is comfortable and not sticky or overbearing.
