Here’s the thing about Andalusia—it’s a great year-round destination. Summertime can be swelteringly hot in the cities (especially Seville), but Andalusia is also home to two of Spain’s most popular coasts – the Costa del Sol and Costa de la Luz. On the Atlantic Coast, the Costa de la Luz is perfect during the summer

What to do in Andalusia

Andalusia is one of my favorite parts of Spain. The pace of life, the sunshine and food makes it one of the top spots to visit in Spain. Rent a car and hit up the big cities including Malaga, Granada, Seville — but don’t forget the small villages and other spots like Gibraltar (not technically part of Spain), Tarifa and Cadiz.

Then there are beautiful small towns like Conil de la Frontera—where I studied Spanish briefly—with picturesque white-painted houses set against the perfect blues of the Andalusian skies and seas.

Learn Spanish! Spain is a great place to learn the language. I’ve taken a few different Spanish language courses in Spain, but my favorites have been the ones learning Spanish in Andalusia. The Andalusian accent is a bit different than other Spanish regional dialects, but the region is an absolute fantastic place to base yourself for studying. I recommend the Clic Spanish Courses in Seville.

Seville is definitely the gay hotspot of Andalusia. The city has a gay hotel (which was mediocre) and there are a handful of gay bars and small clubs. But the city life in general in Seville makes it a relatively gay-friendly place.

The rest of Andalusia is perfect for a romantic getaway. I love doing road trips in Andalusia, where you can discover small towns and cities, try the local foods and just generally take in all the picturesque scenery.

Spain Hotel Deals

During peak tourist season in Spain, it might be a challenge to find quality, affordable accommodation — but there’s usually decent deals to be found on search engines or The trick is to finding a room that’s not directly in the city center, but in one of the less central neighborhoods (often where you’ll find cool hipster places to stay, anyways!).

So, this isn’t a story I’ve shared in many places (even though I’m all over the internet). But in all honesty, it’s one of the most defining moments of my round-the-world trip that lasted from May 2010 to July 2011 (and then some). Like any good adventure story, it’s got a hot Australian dude, a …
