  • Times to Travel: Conditions in central and northern Spain are considered near-perfect in spring and late summer. The 'Costa del Sol' and other southern coastal areas are pleasant throughout the year. Across the Andalucia Region (even in winter) the days are usually sunny and warm. For those seeking summer heat relief, the mountains are a good choice, as are the northern coastal areas from La Coruna to San Sabastian. The eastern Mediterranean coastal cities - from Barcelona south to Cartagena - and the Balearic Islands, are more temperate.
