When we arrived on the Costa del Sol, we scouted out 5 different towns before deciding where to settle down for 2.5 months. Almuñécar was the last of our stops and we fell in love with it as soon as we saw the town from the road. It’s about 27,000 people, with some tourist infrastructure, but mostly a local feel.
I don’t even know that I would’ve gone over to Almuñécar if it wasn’t for Heidi and Alan Wagoner from Wagoner’s Abroad. They are an American family living and blogging about their town. So thanks to them, we added it to our scouting list and the rest is history.
The views of town from above are really beautiful. It looks, well, Meditteranean!
And oh yeah, the beach views are nice as well!
They have a number of parks on the beach. Chuck and I would drink Sangria at a nearby bar while the kids played at this one.
Here are a few pictures from another playground.
