Mid-March for 12 days

Two of us will be staying in Malaga as a base ans welcome suggestions for places to stay (currently looking at www.budgetplaces.com/us/eg_offer_detail.php… and Hotel Sur) in the centro historico...as well as restaurants. Have researched quite a bit about trips to Cordova, Seville, Tangiers and Granada and will probably use a mixture of trains, rental car and tours to get around. Mostly interested in history and culture as we live in Cancun so the beach is not a priority. Will appreciate any ideas and suggestions from those in the know. TIA

If you are in Malaga from Sunday the 24Th this is the start of the Easter parades. First parade starts about 10am and go on until 2am in the morning, usually 8 parades on Palm Sunday.

Will be difficult and expensive to stay in Malaga at this time.

Suggest you look on the coast at Torremolinos and Benalmadena.

Would add Antequera and Ronda to your list of places to visit.

Thanks, Ian. Will be there from the 12 th to the 24th. Might see the first parade. Will certainly consider Ronda and Antequera. Also plan on a Malaga/Espayol march while there.

Yes you must think Ronda and the white hill towns, you will see views you will never forget.

Good luck and have fun. Hubie

Economic places downtown are the Hotel Etap, Hotel Ibis Malaga Centro.

Read about the day trip to Ronda in the top questions.

Thanks, Benny. Seems Ibis doesnt't have space for my date but will check out the Ronda info.

Honestly I'd consider spending at least 4 nights and use Sevilla as another base city. Sevilla really deserves more than a daytrip from Malaga and there are great daytrip opportunities from Sevilla that you couldn't do from Malaga.
