almunecar is parking a problem?

We are considering spending a week in Almunecar from the end of July and are considering renting a house in the old town. We would like to hire a car, but it won't be used everyday. Is parking it for a couple of days at a time going to be a problem? We don't want to be worrying about having to move it at regular intervals or 'feed' meters between trips out. We realise we will have to pay for parking (if there is any). Maybe there is somewhere to park long term and then walk back to the centre?

Alternatively is it really feasible to rely on buses and taxis for local trips and airport transfers?

we really would prefer the Independence a car would allow us, but not at the expense of a worry free holiday

Parking in the old town is a problem unless you somehow rent a house with its own garage. In the lower town virtually all parking is either metered or official car parks - and this is not cheap. Public transport is good if you want to do some day trips to eg Granada, Nerja. Malaga is also very easy by bus and you can get to the airport easily by bus or train direct from the centre of Malaga.

Do a bit of research and look at the Alsa bus timetables for the area. If you know where you might want to go you can plan out your trips in advance.

Parking can be diabolical in the old town. There is a parking garage right by the beach, and you can purchase a pass (un abono) for 2 weeks or a month. I'm not sure what the summer rate is--I know it is higher--but right now, the 15-day pass is 55 euro. With that, you can go in and out as you like and never have to worry about change for the machine or moving the car. It's nice to have the car in the shade, too.

Taxi transfers are expensive, but you could do a taxi from the airport and then rent a car locally for a few days when you wish to get around, too. There is a pretty good bus network for local towns you might wish to visit.

Bon voyage!
