Kosta Del Sol, as the Spanish would say. This coastal beauty is located in the south of Spain. Costa Del Sol truly is as exotic as it sounds. This little gem attracts tourists like flowers attract bees.
You might ask why is Costa Del Sol such a popular tourist destination. Well, let’s see, Is it the Sun or is it the Surf or is it the Sangria?Well, I think it’s all of the above and not to mention some of the best beaches in Spain, the history, mouth-watering seafood and rich culture.
The coastline of Costa Del Sol, which is in the Andalucia region, stretches from Almeria to Tarifa. The capital of Andalucia region is Malaga.
The locals do say the high rises, and tourism has changed the place over the years. Even though there is all these modern deco of everything money can buy, the locals have preserved the history and the culture with so much pride.
On my drive along the coastline, I loved seeing the old school fishing boats, little villages and old style dinners, it was like time sat still in some ways.
There is something for every taste and budget here, whether you are traveling with family, with a partner, for business or solo like me, you will enjoy the hospitality of Costa Del Sol.
