Do you ever wonder what professional travel planners do during their Summer holidays? Because we spend the Spring and Autumn months road-testing new hotels, venues, activities and experiences, in July and August, we stay local at home here in Cantabria. In Northern Spain, the temperatures are perfect for days on the beach, BBQs at home and lunches out with friends and family. Here is the longlist of 25 experiences in Cantabria we’ve planned for this Summer! If you’re planning an active trip to Cantabria, get in touch and we’ll design your perfect holiday!
To celebrate the brand-new ferry route from Cork direct to Santander, we’ve pulled together 10 Things to See & Do in Santander, one of Spain’s best loved cities on the Northern coast. We live a stone’s throw from here, across the bay in Cantabria, and it’s a joy to showcase what’s on our doorstep. If you want to travel in style, we’d be honoured to design your tailored Totally Spain trip starting out here in Santander, Northern Spain.
One of the most common questions we answer is about Spanish mealtimes. Being based here in Spain, we frequently see travellers to Spain sitting down to meals at the wrong time. We always encourage our Totally Spain clients to make a note of (and adapt to) Spanish mealtimes – especially when travelling to less touristy areas and in the low season. Why? If you do dine at the correct Spanish mealtimes, you are much more likely to find yourself eating authentic Spanish food with lots of local colour, noise and atmosphere – which is always better than dining alone.
