Just a word of warning, if you have a pooch or take your hosts pooch out for it's constitutional then beware that the Local Police are now under strict instructions from the Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) to issue fines for not clearing up doggie mess !!
Fines will range between €500 and €1500 !!
Also, anyone caught dumping commercial or yard rubbish illegally can face a fine of up to €61,000 !!!
Finally, anyone finding themselves cut short on the way home from a late night tipple if caught can face a fine of between €751 and €1500 !!
Yes, i did say 751 - some of the fine amounts are bizarre lol.
Thankfully this problem is not that prevalent but it's nice to see Benalmadena Ayuntamiento taking a proactive approach to this, and it's just a shame other resorts don't follow suit.
