I think you should hire a car to travel between these cities as the public transportation is not very frequent. For car rental you can use the services of companies like Pointcarhire and Sixt as their prices are quite affordable. Presently Pointcarhire is providing good facilities like CDW, liability insurance, unlimited mileage etc. all inclusive in their car rental rates. Hopefully you can easily find a good deal with them.

"A nice spot for a stop!"
Arcos de la Frontera is a nice little white village in a unique setting, as you can see on the picture. Although it is quite hard to climb up to the highest point and central place, it is worth doing so, as you can see on the picture. Not enough of climbing? Then enter the tower of the church to have this marvelous overlook over the city and landscape...
"Steep, narrow streets..."
.... you better leave your car in the lower part of the town and go by bus or by feet!
"Tower on the main place"
