Easter week is here! We recommend three plans for travel during Easter without waiting for the last minute to book your hotel.
This year Easter week comes late. The timing has been a bit capricious so the faithful have had to wait until the second half of April. The good thing about this inevitable delay is that Easter is closer to the summer, with temperatures being more summer than spring-like.
Unique images and tangible excitement that is transmitted from generation to generation and that you must experience at least once in your lifetime. If there’s anywhere in Spain where this period is celebrated with fervour and passion, it’s Andalusia. The streets fill with shawls, and the silence is only broken with sacred songs as the procession passes. You have to see it!
Sun and sand tourism
This year, the beach is an important reason to plan a getaway. Without the summer crowds and with warmer temperatures, Andalusia stands out as a great option for a break and for getting a bit more tanned.
An increase in the all-inclusive hotel offer in Spain in recent years is evident, but what does the “all-inclusive” concept include?
In Spain, hotels are increasingly offering their visitors the “all-inclusive” formula, a better way to control your average spending while on holiday. On the Canary Islands, 30% of tourists stay in hotels with this offer, according to data from 2016, while on the Peninsula and Balearic Islands, this type of growth hasn’t been quite as fast. Let's look at what it means to stay in an all-inclusive hotel.
What is the “all-inclusive” concept?
The “all-inclusive” concept is a variant on a full-board stay. It originated on the idyllic islands of the Caribbean, where hotels are destinations in themselves, offering guests any imaginable comfort and a wide range of food and drinks.
This type of accommodation is a double guarantee for the tourist: a hotel product with high-quality standards and the security of having a fixed price. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about incurring excessive expenses and can focus on enjoying your stay.
