However, we choose the pyrenees because in spring there is still snow on the highest peaks, the green is clear in the valleys and the water gushes from all sides, allowing the rivers to flow with vigor. No type of filter is necessary because the fields burn with wildflowers, the sun appears and the sky is truly blue. The days lengthen, and everything comes together to create a very pleasant atmosphere.

We also enjoyed the small villages with stone houses, slate in its tiles and flowerpots in the windows, as well as the streets with many curves and little traffic.

Alicante, Benidorm

Spring is an excellent time to visit Benidorm. Although many claim otherwise, the truth is that it is more than sun and beach.

Valencia welcomes us with a sunny climate, terraces waiting to be filled and the best paellas that Spain can offer, freshly prepared on outdoor tables. There won't be as many people as in summer, so we will have the beach to ourselves to walk along the coast and maybe eat an ice cream.

We can go to the City of the Arts, walk around town, go to Botanical Garden… And much more!
