Hello! As you probably already know, on March 20th spring started. For many Andalusians this season is special because it is when we celebrate one of the most anticipated holidays for Andalusians: Easter.
Although the Easter vacations are still a little while away, at AIL Malaga we are celebrating because last week we received a school group from Holland. They came accompanied by their teachers and very eager to learn Spanish in Malaga: to get to know our school and to live a great linguistic and cultural experience.
Our colleague Dora, whom you already know because she has written some posts in this blog, always surprises our students with super fun activities. Also, taking advantage of the fact that they have come to study Spanish in Malaga, they have the opportunity to enjoy the delicious gastronomy of the city and the Spanish region.
Last week we received some messages on our Tiktok channel asking us to give you some suggestions about the best things to do in Malaga in spring and so, we are going to tell you some of our favorite recommendations:
1- Visit the cave of Nerja: spring is the best time to make a visit to the cave of Nerja, there are not as many tourists as in high season and it is such a special and curious place that is worth knowing.
2- Stroll through the old town area: the most commercial areas of the city are Calle Larios and Calle Nueva. Here you will find everything you are looking for: from buying a souvenir for your friends to buying that denim jacket you have been looking for since you arrived in Spain. Malaga is a city with a lot of life so you won’t have time to get bored.
3- Try the best churros in town: we included this recommendation especially for Jenkin, one of the students from Holland who came last week, and who, since he tried churros a few years ago in Mexico, was excited about the idea of trying churros in Spain. So, although we hadn’t planned on it, we took Jenkin and all his colleagues to try the best churros in town. He couldn’t have been happier and, besides, they all enjoyed a very fun afternoon chatting and snacking on churros with hot chocolate.
4- Enjoy the views of the Alcazaba: although the views of the city are beautiful at any time, in spring it seems that everything has a more magical air and therefore, we recommend that you come to see the Alcazaba in the afternoon, when the sun begins to fall the light is less intense and thanks to that, you will get stunning views of the city.
5- Visit the botanical garden of Malaga: although for many, the best time to visit is at Christmas, as it is fully illuminated, for us, without a doubt, it is in spring; the flowers are beautiful and it is an ideal place to enjoy nature in all its splendor.
Malaga is a beautiful city, with amazing people and a lot to offer. Therefore, it is an ideal choice to visit any time of the year, although if you accept our recommendation, spring is the season where Malaga shines with a special halo.
We hope you have enjoyed this post and that, if you decide to come to the Costa del Sol, for tourism or to take an intensive Spanish course in Malaga, you take note of our tips and have a great time.
By the way! As we told you at the beginning of the post, in Malaga we are already preparing to live Easter to the fullest… Do you want us to dedicate the next blog to talk about it? Leave it in the comments!
