Spain is famous for its large coastlines with a wide variety of tourist hotels and all-inclusive resorts.
Most hotels and resorts provide all the amenities for a pleasant stay, but the prices are not cheap at all, in addition to being dull and unfriendly.
Instead of spending the day by the pool with a bunch of tourists, you should try a new experience like going out there, discovering Spain on your own, connecting with the locals and their culture, try new dishes.
Not scheduled for Tuesday, the 13th
According to the Spaniards, Friday the 13th is not bad luck, but Tuesday. You should not plan anything on these days.
There’s even a Spanish saying: “En martes, ni te case, ni te embarques, ni de tu casa te apartes” which means “on Tuesday, don’t get married, don’t get on a train or plane and don’t leave the house”.
Avoid discussing regionalism
Regionalism is an extremely sensitive topic for Spaniards. They have a very strong sense of regional pride, especially in Catalonia, the Basque Country and Galicia, where the locals have their own language and cultural identity. So don’t get into conversations about regionalism.
