2013 has been a challenging year for many in Spain but one sector that has really bucked the downturn is tourism. Overall visitor numbers are up significantly and here at TotallySpain.com we have seen our numbers increase too. As we approach 2014, Ken Baldwin & Belen Encinas, the founders of Totally Spain, talk us through the past 12 months.
Spain is great for a family holiday but why a surfing package in Northern Spain you say? Not only is it historically a great place to surf – but we believe that the milder climate in Northern Spain is a bonus for families who want to be active in the middle of the day during the hot summer months. We also think you’ll enjoy the cultural amenities and the foodie vibe. Remember the tapas in the North are unbeatable!
Time to go back to Spain? If you are thinking about another Spain vacation, we have 14 remarkable hidden Spanish sights we believe will knock your socks off. All are well known by the Spanish but amazingly, they don’t seem to get as much attention internationally as they deserve. No harm in that at all as it means they are much quieter than the big attractions. So, if you are planning a return holiday to Spain, do consider including some of these lesser known Spanish gems. We’ve been including these types of places in our Totally Spain travel itineraries since the year 2000. Our clients adore them and we hope you will too.
We’re just back from a trip to Asturias with a large group. It’s always a pleasure for us to spend some time there and this was no exception. Do you want to see some of the great seafood, lovely beaches and beautiful fishing ports we enjoyed?
We meet some interesting people in our line of business and we’ve asked a few of these colourful characters to guestblog for us over the coming months. First in the gallows is Galician-based writer and pig-lover John Barlow who tells us about his adopted hometown – A Coruña in Galicia. Thanks John! It’s always a pleasure to read your work…
