Top 5 Places to Go in Marbella Spain

The Costa del Sol is a vacation hot spot for lucky luxury travelers year round. The wide array of excursions, beaches and night clubs can leave even the most seasoned traveler wondering what he or she should do first. Here’s a list of the top five things you should do first next time you’re in Marbella or Puerto Banus, Spain.

1)      Old Town Marbella. At the eastern end of town, just north of the main road you’ll find Old Town Marbella. Old Town is home to beautiful cobbled streets, local bars, pavement cafes and the best authentic Spanish restaurants. Orange Square is lined with orange trees and is a great place to people watch away from the hustle and bustle of everything else going on.

2)      Dali Statues in Marbella. If you’re a luxury traveler who enjoys the finer things in life, you’ll likely be impressed with the Salvador Dali sculptures in Marbella. They’re located in central Marbella down the Avenida del Mar. Both sides of the street are linked with fountains and statues in the center.

3)      Find a home away from home.  Although it may not be considered a tourist attraction, the beautiful vacation villas of Marbella and Puerto Banus are worth mentioning. The true luxury traveler doesn’t stay at a hotel, but instead rents a home away from home. Marbella Rentals  is one of the premier vacation rental companies of the region and has villas ranging from 3500 euros per week all the way up to 70,000 euros per week. Some of the villas are beach front, while others overlook the golf course. You can even find villas that include nannies, chefs, chauffeurs and butlers. Talk about rest and relaxation.

4)      Puerto Banus. If mingling with the rich and the famous is up your alley, then you’ll love Puerto Banus. It’s a favorite for jetsetters, A-listers and fun seekers alike. If yachts and marinas are your thing, you’ll be right at home.  Here you can find the hottest night clubs, fine dining restaurants, pubs and music bars to fit any taste.

5)      Beaches. What trip to southern Spain would be complete without soaking up some sun? For about 5 euros per day, you can rent a sun bed and parasol on one of Marbella’s beaches. If you’re an adventurous type, you can try out water sports such as water skiing and paragliding. If you prefer to just kick back, there are plenty of places to eat and drink along the shoreline.

SOME KIDS SUITCASE IDEAS:

Here are some ideas that may help you to do the perfect kids suitcase:

The first thing is the suitcase. A funny suitcase for the kid, better a light trolley, It is going to be their “home” for a few days and they need feeling comfortable with it.

A little backpack, different from the school one, will be useful too for the outings.

His/her favourite toy. Only one is the best. Let them choose it and in case it would be the bike or that big lovely bear, try to explain that it must be carried of by him/her at any time as well as the suitcase. Avoid the electronic toys, they might be useless sometimes.

The medicines they are used to take, only in small samples, one thermometer, decorated plasters, an after bite cream, towelettes and toothpaste with toothbrush and a comb. Better in a hard plastic box easy to identify.

Always include a coat, not matter what weather is and best if it is a raincoat. In warm sunny places it is cooler in the evenings and early mornings and if you are going to a beach place, the coat will protect the kid from the wet air in the nights.

High sun protection cream for kids and sun-glasses for mountain and beach. Swimming goggles for the swimming pool and  trunks or swimsuit and armbands if they are still using them.

It is quite useful a small light for the nights with an international socket, not only for the babies but for the growing ups too. Awakening in a strange place is somehow upsetting.

Small pastime like game cards for children, little pencils and a notebook to draw or write will delight them in the long journeys by plane, by car, by train…

The older ones would love to play with their game console too.

Two pairs of comfortable shoes at least, better the sport ones and water resistant and a pair of sandals (that can be used too as slippers)

And why not? A light blanket or duvet if the kid is fond of it, will be useful in the train, in the car, in the sofa having a nap. And an inflatable ball, the little type will do to play in everywhere.
