Hot Granada!

Just a word of advice to those tourists going to Granada in July or August.

It get's VERY HOT during the day.It is not unusual for the temperature to reach 40 degrees many days,the hottest part of the day being around 5 or 6pm.

The early part of the morning is the best time to get out and about .Also remember to drink a lot of water and to wear a hat.

The town will be quiet as most inhabitants will be at their beach flats and the university students will be away!

I'll second that. We visited Granada last week and experienced temperatures of 38 degrees. That's why the town is quiet during the afternoon and livelier in the late evening when everyone comes out to play again.

Tourists should follow the example of the locals and enjoy a siesta after lunch then venture out for a glass of tinto de Verano (iced red wine mixed with lemonade) and a stroll at about 9pm. If you've got the stamina you could be eating ice cream after midnight, which seems to be pretty much the norm there!

Zaidin's advice sounds good, also remember the factor 25 suncream if you are likely to burn.

We had a good time in Granada. It is definitely worth a visit and the tapas were just terrific!
