I can't help too much because the only thing we have booked is our flights. We will be going for two weeks, May 23rd to June 6th. We are flying into Barcelona. We have not booked anything else and intend to do so after the wedding.
There have been so many reasons we choose Spain. I am excited to plan the trip though! We will also be going to Madrid and possibly a few other places.
ETA: So far, we spent $200.00 on our round trip airfare, because we used our travel credit card points. But, the flights were less than $900.00 total for both. We are flying from Toronto to Barcelona, with a layover in Libsona, Portugal. We are a 3.5 hour drive from toronto, but found it 100% worth it to drive from there for flights that cheap.
We're doing one week in Spain in September. Flying into Malaga (arriving Sunday), then taking a bus to Granada and staying there through Friday, taking the bus to Nerja (staying there Friday and Saturday night), then flying back out of Malaga on Sunday (taking a airport shuttle very early in the morning).
Our flights were $150 (Yay Delta miles!) and we've budgeted $1,500 for hotels for 7 nights. With meals, activities, and souvenirs we're looking at around $4,000 total.
We did two weeks in Spain. I will say this Spain was not even in my top 5. I’ve been to Europe multiple times and I’m kind of over it. However, this was DH dream trip so I compromised.
Flew into Barcelona staying near the gothic quarter. We just did one full day there with a private guide seeing the Sagrada Familia and then did a chocolate tour which was fab. Honestly I wasn’t overly impressed with Barcelona and was glad we only chose to spend a day there.
Took the train to Sevilla. Did a bike tour, saw the Alcazar, went to a Hamman, flamenco show, buying baked goods from a convent, just lots of walking around the city & in parks. This was my favorite part of the trip. I’m glad we allocated most of our time here.
We finished out in Granada. The Alhambra was beautiful and we visited another Hamman, which was great. DH had a great time, he loved every minute. I enjoyed parts of the trip, anything I didn’t like was pretty expected.
We spent $11k total - this includes business class flights, high end hotels, private guides, etc. Certainly can be done for much less. But it was our HM so I wanted to splurge #noregrets
We are!!! Following because we don't have anything set yet. Tentatively we want to do 10-11 days split between Madrid, San Sebastian and Barcelona, but that's as far as we have gotten in the plans. Excited to see what the rest of you have planned
We went to Barcelona for a week. Spent about $2,200 on flights and 7 nights hotel. Maybe another 1k-$1500 on activities and food/drink? We didn’t do any extravagant meals and spent a few days just relaxing by the pool. Obviously doing tours or activities every day would cost a little more. ETA: we did a full day city tour including Park Guell and Sagrada Familia (worth it just to skip the line). We also did a full day Montserrat and winery tour which I highly recommend.
