maps of Rota

by BonnieNichols

Where can I purchase street maps of Rota, Jerez, Cadiz and other southwest Spain city maps?

Re: maps of Rota

by puerto_lover

Streets seem to change quite frequently in Spain ! I have always found the online maps at Yellow Pages useful.
Also Google Maps are good.
You can purchase maps at specialist map shops but you dont give your home town. If in London, the STANFORDS people can always locate maps .....

When i was last in that part of Spain i picked up street maps of Jerez & Cadiz for free in a tourist information place. I don't remember which one but they are good maps so that could be an option for you.

When I was there I got a good regional map from a gas station. Michelin makes a good series of maps for Europe.

Travel Tips for Rota


by Hopkid

Lavante is the term for the strong wind that blows from the south. Originating in Africa, the winds bring high temperatures and lots of dust. The old locals' tale is that a lavante will not end after an even number of days. So if you're in the second day of a lavante, expect it to be the same for at least one more day.

Be prepared for anything

by bpwillet

You will want to lay out your clothes you want to bring then divide it in half and then see if there is anything you want to leave out. This will help with your desicion of how many bags to take. If you are doing more than just laying on the beach that is. Good walking shoes or sandals go great here but there is a lot of sand around. The sun can be very strong so be prepared to wear shirts whenever you are away from the beach. It can get cooler at night where a light jacket or sweater may make you more comfortable. Plenty of sunscreen and aloe lotion. Vacation is the last place to be miserable because of a sunburn. It is very sunny in Rota and southern Spain for that matter. You may find a polarizer helpful. If you are bringing your camera to the beach the air and water are very salty. The water is very clear but you will want to bring a mask or goggles if you plan to do any underwater swimming. The water is very salty.

When I was there the first thing that shine my eyes was the sunshine rise down to the ocean. You can see the spritual houses living with the Endulus atmosphere. On the other side of the mirror, you may see the huge beaches that goes from one side to the another side.

Rota, Spain

"The Andalusia Region"

Rota is a town in the Andalusia region of Spain, located in
Cadiz province, across the Bay of Cadiz from the city of the
same name. It is bordered by the Spanish towns of Chipiona,
Jerez, and El Puerto de Santa Maria.

During the off-season, its main commercial activity centres
on the fishing industry.



Located on the Atlantic coast,
approximately halfway between
Portugal and Gibraltar, it is primarily
a resort town, a summer destination
for tourists coming from all points in
Europe and abroad.

Two Weeks on the Costa de la Luz

by Hopkid

"Now this is a business trip!"

Work has sent me to many places, mostly within the U.S., but I have had the chance to travel to Guam and the Azores in the past on business. On both of those trips I took advantage and spent extra time in Hawaii and Lisbon (my first visit to mainland Europe), respectively. This year I was lucky enough to be asked to work on a project at a U.S. Naval Station in Rota, Spain. Rota is a small resort town on the other side of the Bahia de Cadiz from the bigger and more well-known city of Cadiz. Jerez de la Frontera is the closest large city, only 30 km or so north and is where one flies into when traveling to Rota. My wife and I had spent the week prior traveling around Andalucia, visiting Sevilla, Granada, and Cordoba.

I was in Rota for 2 weeks with two collegues from the States. During our time on the base we worked tirelessly in the high temperatures but managed to return to our hotel and go out and experience life in Rota at least through dinner someplace. Towards the end of our visit we managed to spend more time walking around and checking out some of the historic sites on offer. Rota definitey has a small town feel which was a nice change of pace after visting the much larger cities of Sevilla, Cordoba, and Granada. One could pick a worse place to spend a couple of days on holiday soaking up the sun on the beaches and enjoying some nice seafood at one of the many restaurants. It also served as a home base from where we could take short trips to nearby Jerez, Sanlucar de Barrameda, Acros de la Frontera, and a day trip to Ronda.
