New Years Eve

Post by robbiedolittle » Fri Dec 17, 2010 3:42 pm

Hi. Father and adult son coming to Benalmadena from Canada for holidays and will be there New Years Eve. We are looking for options regarding a place to celebrate with the locals and other tourists. Any suggestions?
Also I would like to take the bus from the airport to the hotel which is on Av de Antonio Machado. I have a few hours before my son arrives and want to try and navigate the area on my own without taxi or car-hire. And I don't speak a word of Spanish. Any suggestions for this also? I am very excited to visit Spain for the first time.

Thank you...... Rob

Hi and welcome Rob!
Where in Canada are you from?, I always wanted to visit that country :)

About New Year´s Eve, you can celebrate it at most of the main squares at each munincipality. As example, you can check the video below which is a New Year´s eve celebration in Coin, Malaga (interior white village)

You can check on youtube for other celebrations in Malaga, so you can decide where would you like to go ;)

About the bus from Malaga airport to Benalmadena, its a little bit complicated...the only bus to that area is outside the airport. You have to go straight to the South, and there is a bus stop under the bridge. Another option is to take a bus or train (last stop) to Malaga city center (muelle Heredia bus station) from Malaga airport and take a bus to Benalmadena from there.

My recommendation would be to take a taxi or to hire a car, Benalmadena as you can see will bring you some headaches if you choose the bus. However it is possible to do, let me know if need some indications in a map.

Hi Raul. Thanks so much for responding with great information. I think I will take a taxi from the airport to the hotel and explore the bus when my son arrives, a few hours after me. I am coming from Toronto and he is flying down from London. We are very excited to be coming to Spain, my 1st visit there.
