Favorite thing: I have put links to Google Map in my tips to make it easier to find the objects mentioned, when possible to get the right position. The links are marked in italics. Unfortunately Google Map isn't very precise and too often points to other buildings than the wanted one.
They have lot of cultural and religious fiestas, so be aware of these dates. Banks and shops are closed during this celebrations.
Fondest memory: Feria de Mayo- a colorful merry festival. We loved watching the women, men and children wearing their beautiful costumes dancing in the feast aereal
Because of the warm climate (during the summer time), the best time to do something "creative" is early in the morning or late at night.
So take it easy in the middle of the day and hit the road after the sunset.
It might be d*mn hot in the middle of the day during the summer. That is why local people are having siesta - and yes, some of them actually do go sleeping for a while. Most of the (smaller) stores are closed from about 12:00 to 16:00 or so.
Siesta is actually a good thing, because you cannot do much of anything in that burning heat. Swimming pool, sea and beach are the best places during that time.
As soon as you sit down to a terrace of some cafeteria or restaurant you get many street salesmen selling wathces, sunglasses, jewelry, etc.
There are also some women begging for money. It might make you sad while watching women carrying their(?) child and begging, put you should really think if they are on such a bad situation or are they just using the child as a means to an end.
As before - people watching. Great place toi do very little and chill out. New pedestrian areas a great boon. Street market along the town every evening with great street artists.
Fondest memory: Way too many to report. Great times always had there. Some teriffic resteraunts espec one which is way off the main track called Eldorado, rum by Alfred & Manolo.
