    Tarifa is a poular windsurfing destination

    by AKtravelers Written Feb 29, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Neither of us windsurf, but we couldn't help be impressed by the practitioners in Tarifa. Apparently, the meeting of the Mediterranean and Atlantic air masses generates a lot of wind in Tarifa, and it is one of Europe's top windsurfing destinations. I inquired -- it is NOT the place to be a beginner!

    Fight a bull yourself

    by AKtravelers Updated Feb 28, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I think you can do this if you want. People do. I have no idea how you'd go about fighting a bull or why you'd want to. But go for it if you want to.

    Equipment: A pink cape for the beginning of the fight and a red cape for the end of the fight. A sword is necessary to administer the final kill. An elaborate wardrobe, complete with tight pants and a hat, is required. I would think a protective cup would also be useful.

    Can you do this?

    Go to a Bullfight

    by AKtravelers Written Feb 28, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bullfighting is the national sport of Spain. Certainly, it's controversial -- especially among non-Spaniards -- for its cruelty. But, it is an integral part of Spanish culture and can be arrestingly beautiful. Bring your camera! If you want to understand machismo and bravado, you should see a bullfight.
    Predictably, only us guys went to the event while the women did, well, we don't know what they did. The bullfights are held at 8 p.m. on Sunday and nothing else is open then -- we were hoping they'd get the shopping out of their system. We bought tickets on the shady side (a must) despite the extra cost, and we saw three torreadors fight two bulls a piece. The fans sitting next to us explained to us everything that was going on. There is a lot of ritual to a bullfight!
    So, before getting too judgemental about the sport, go see it for yourself.

    Equipment: Bring binoculars, since the bullrings can be big. If you don't get a seat in the shade, prepare to sweat.

    Bullfighting

    There are many outstanding bullrings in Spain, most notably in Madrid and Sevilla and you can join the locals for this interesting spectacle during the season which runs from late spring to late fall.
