Base vacation location

We are planning a vacation in Fall (mid-October to Early November). We are RCI members and are debating where to stay. The plan is to stay active, rent a car and visit Barcelona, Valencia, Madrid, etc. Most of our excursions will be day trips.

Need advice on whether we should stay in Calpe or Tarragona. Keep in mind that the location needs to serve as a base for our adventures during the week long stay. Thanks!

Most definitely Tarragona, much more accessible to visit the places you're interested in.

Thanks for the response. Could you explain how difficult it would be to visit Barcelona and Madrid from Calpe? Is it possible to do a day trip?

It is possible but one heck of a journey...Barcelona is 500 plus km from Calpe (I think) and Madrid is another long, long run. I certainly wouldn't attempt to do it all in a day.
