There is no question that visiting the long and sandy Atlantic beaches and the cozy and picturesque Mediterranean coves found in Spain is appealing to many. Additionally, with more than 300 days of sun each year, it is likely an environment anyone could become accustomed to. However, there are certain times that you should consider visiting this country. The Best time to visit Spain?
Visiting Spain During the Summer
Warm weather that creates perfect beach days is abundant during the summer months. Additionally, a number of tours only operate during the summer months. However, in some locations, the weather can become too hot, and there are also a number of cities that become completely deserted during these months, which means that you need to carefully plan your trip.
The months of July and August tend to be the busiest months with the most international travelers. This is not going to be the ideal times to visit locations such as Seville or Madrid, as many of the natives will leave these cities during the extremely hot months. If you are planning your trip to Spain during this period, then you should consider visiting Santiago de Compostela or Bilbao, where cooler temperatures can be found.
Visiting Spain During the Winter
If you prefer fewer crowds and more bearable temperatures, then you may want to visit during the winter. There are also more events taking place during this time of the year. It is a good idea to stick to the south, since the weather is not as bad as what you will find in the north.
