Highs & Lows

The beaches are really beautiful!

From a big city to small towns, so a couple of days will be enough.

Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    I would have stayed at least 2 more nights in Barcelona! It has so much to visit.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    We had to change hotels in Tossa de Mar because they were fully booked.

  • How was the food?

    Spectacular. I highly recommend to try the Tapas, in any restaurant you go. Near the shore you can find a wide variety of restaurants.

  • Transportation Tips?

    If you're going from Barcelona be sure to check the bus ticket and pay attention at every stop. You can be confused because the bus stops at Lloret de Mar and Tossa de Mar.

  • Booking details?

    Be sure to book the hotel with anticipation in Tossa de Mar. It's possible that if you go in the summer most of them are fully booked and it can be really hard to find a good one at a reasonable price.

Lodging

  • I stayed at a Friend's apartment, it is a really good idea since you can save some money for the rest of the trip.

  • Hotel at the center of the city called Villa Mar. We had a great stay, the place was clean and they had breakfast included.
