Whether you immerse yourself in the energetic fervor of city life in Barcelona or relax along the Mediterranean shorelines as the waves lap at your feet, there's something for everyone to enjoy in Spain. Meanwhile, the local culture is just as vibrant as the surrounding scenery.

This boastful region of Spain is marked by turquoise water, sandy beaches, and outdoor activities. In the evenings, you can choose from a variety of fine dining restaurants along the water's edge.

La Rioja: You will marvel at Spain's enchanting countryside when you visit the northern region of La Rioja, which is situated next to the Basque Country. This exquisite region is known as a wine country that is home to renowned vineyards with picturesque views and expert sommeliers that can guide you in the wine tasting process.

Religion

The primary religion of Spain is Roman Catholicism, although the country is also known historically for its Jewish and Islamic traditions.

Best Time to Visit Spain

A visit to Spain during the summer and spring months ensures a pleasant and relaxing luxury vacation.

Summer: In summer, Spain is best enjoyed along the Mediterranean coast and in the northern region of the country. These regions boast mild weather that beckons travelers to explore the outdoors. Summers in central and southern Spain can bring intense heat, especially in late July and throughout August.

Spring/Fall: Spring and fall are both ideal seasons to visit all regions of Spain. By now, the steamy summer temperatures in southern Spain have cooled down, but the rainy winters of northern Spain have not yet started or have already subsided.

Essential Experiences in Spain

When you take part in the essential activities in Spain that are listed below, you will experience the best that each region has to offer while immersing yourself in exciting adventures.

Architectural Excellence in Barcelona: Upon visiting Barcelona, there's no escaping the exquisite architecture that is often marked by its impressive facades, lifelike caricatures, and beautiful tilework. The mastermind behind many of these famous pieces is Antoni Gaudi. You can join an expert guide on a tour of Gaudi's most prized works, including Casa Mila, Casa Batllo, La Sagrada Familia, and Park Guell. Throughout it all, you will experience the charm of Barcelona's downtown and panoramic views from the park.

Island Living in Mallorca: You can transfer from mainland Spain to the impeccable landscapes of Mallorca. Here, you can experience the very best of island living as you hop from one beach to the next and sample fresh seafood. You can also spend a day exploring the downtown area, where you can step inside Castell de Bellver Castle and the Cathedral-Basilica of Santa Maria.

Exquisite Wine Tasting in La Rioja: You can sit back for a relaxing evening among the rolling plains of Spain's illustrious northern countryside and experience the very best of La Rioja as you visit the Vivanco Museum of Wine Culture and the flowered hilltops of the Sierra de la Demanda. You can also settle in for a luxurious wine tasting alongside an expert sommelier.

Travel Considerations

You should acknowledge the following travel considerations when planning a trip to Spain.

Weather

Weather in Spain tends to be mild during the spring and autumn. These months are ideal for travel because visitors can comfortably venture to all regions of Spain. In the northern region of Spain, winters can be rainy and foggy, and in the south, summers can be hot and dry. In the case of inclement weather, travelers can consult with their Zicasso trip specialist. Spanish cities are saturated with exciting indoor and outdoor activities, such as museums, palace visits, renowned restaurants, and music and dance performances.

Transportation

Transportation between cities in Spain is reliable and convenient via bus, train, or private shuttle service. The AVE speed rail provides quick train connections between major cities, such as Madrid and Barcelona. In general, the small towns of southern Spain are not as well connected as central and northern Spain. Travelers should make ground transportation plans in advance when traveling to southern Spain. Zicasso remains readily available to assist any travelers with mobility challenges. Your guide can also plan accordingly so that you can still see all the sites, participate in all activities, and visit all the iconic sites that are essential to a Spain tour.

Packing

People who are traveling to Spain should pack durable walking shoes. Spaniards tend to dress nicer than travelers from other countries when it comes to a night out or late evening of tapas. Regardless, tourists do not need to adhere to specific dress codes or standards.

Weather Considerations

Travelers who are visiting Northern Spain during winter months should pack rain gear. Travelers who are visiting Southern Spain during the summer months should pack light, breathable clothes. While shorts are less common among Spaniards, they are perfectly acceptable to wear.

Electrical Considerations

Spain operates on a 220-voltage, 50-hertz system. Outlets allow for two-pronged, round or flat plugs. North American travelers should bring outlet converters.

Pharmaceutical Considerations

Travelers to Spain should bring all prescribed medications with them. In the case of an emergency, travelers can consult with their Zicasso trip specialist regarding local pharmacy and/or hospital recommendations.

Cultural Considerations

Travelers should be aware that pharmacies and other businesses are often closed on Sundays. In central and southern Spain, business hours may vary during the month of August because locals break away from the hot city temperatures to vacation along the coast.

Travel Insurance

You’ve booked your dream vacation, now protect it with travel insurance. A wide range of factors can leave your vacation in limbo. Medical emergencies, inclement weather, and unexpected cancellations can cause turmoil for your trip, so in the unlikely event of a disaster, get the travel insurance coverage that provides peace of mind.

Travel Documents

Making sure that you are carrying the appropriate travel documents is essential for any traveler when visiting Spain. For this reason, you should be sure to pack the proper paperwork to ensure the most pleasant and problem-free travel experience. Listed below are some of the most important documents to have on you when traveling in Spain:

  • Personal medical information
  • Pertinent information regarding any condition(s) from your doctor, especially including any medication that you are taking
  • Emergency contact information
  • Passport
  • Visa, if necessary
  • Proof of airline tickets and reservations
  • Customs forms and documents
  • Hotel or accommodation reservations
  • Travel and medical insurance (see above section regarding this)

Your Zicasso travel specialist will be able to provide requirements that are specific to your trip, although responsibility always lies with the traveler to ensure that all is in order. Travel requirements can and do change with little to no notice, so all are wise to stay updated as your trip nears.

Finances & Tipping

ATMs are readily available throughout Spain. In general, Spain still operates largely on a cash economy. This is especially true in small towns but can also extend to large cities in areas that are less heavily-frequented by tourists. Tipping is not common in Spain. At most, people will leave a few euros as a tip for exceptional service at a bar or restaurant. For all other questions related to tipping and bartering, you can consult with your Zicasso trip specialist.

Safety & Accessibility of Resources

To ensure a safe trip to Spain, you should consider the following guidelines and helpful resources throughout your journey.

Crime in Spain is low. Most instances of crime are limited to petty thefts, such as pickpocketing. Tourists do not have to worry about any major health risks. Doctors, medications, and urgent care services are available throughout the country in the case of an emergency.

Crime Rate

The crime rate in Spain is among the lowest in Europe and continues to decline.

Things to look out for

You should be aware of petty thefts, including pickpocketing, when boarding and exiting public transportation in addition to when gathering in highly populated areas.

Medical & First Aid

Travelers in need of medical assistance are free to visit a local clinic or hospital. In the case of an emergency, travelers can consult with their travel specialist for local recommendations. It is recommended that all international travelers consult with a primary care physician prior to traveling. This information is not intended to be a substitute for personalized guidance from a doctor.
