Spain will provide you with majestic mountainous beauty coupled with a splendid coastline and history. But a visit to Spain would not be complete without experiencing its festivities, exquisite foods, and fun. Here are some fun ideas for your next visit to Spain.
To get the ball, or tomatoes, rolling, why not begin with a fun activity that involves food, the outdoors, and getting seriously dirty? Play with your food at the exclusive annual festival in Bunol, held on the last Wednesday of August, La Tomatina. Have oodles of fun launching this juicy fruit at your friends or foes for many an hour, then observe the aftermath of a visual bloodbath.
If traditional sports are more your thing, join the passionate locals to experience a game of football at the home field of FC Barcelona, Camp Nou. If you want to enjoy the arts, head to Seville to watch a performance of Spain's national dance form, flamenco.
If you are keen to entice your party personality to come out and play, a February festivity to join is the Carnival in Tenerife. The streets of Santa Cruz are overtaken by parties during the days leading up to the official parades of the world's second-biggest Carnival. It is party time!
But no party is complete without at least one day of nightclubbing in Ibiza. Whether it is inside an actual nightclub or while soaking up the rays on the beach, you will be entranced by world-renowned DJs.
To slow it down after your party experiences, take full advantage of soft white sand and flat seas at the ever-popular Playa de Ses Illetes on the small island, of Formentera. The perfect spot for a relaxed beach day of snorkeling, swimming, or simply soaking up the sun's rays.
Perhaps an easy day of road-tripping is more your scene, and if that's the case, an epic drive through the Andalusian countryside is a must on your to-do list in Spain.
For food & wine lovers, Spain offers an array of vineyards near the country's north coast, particularly in Rioja. The continental climate with winds protected by the mountains makes this region a great place for wines. Spanish wines pair well with the most authentic Paella in the world, Paella Valenciana.
For those wanting to walk away from their trip to Spain, knowing they have had a truly authentic experience, be sure to pair up a few of these fun, delicious, and exhilarating options.
