Las 4 cosas de Madrid que no debes dejar de probar

Madrid es una ciudad que tiene tanto que ofrecer que a menudo una escapada no da para mucho. Pero si vas sobre seguro y te llevas esta lista de 4 cosas que sí o sí debes hacer en tu visita a Madrid (sobre todo si nunca las has hecho), seguro que vuelves a casa feliz y con ganas de repetir cuanto antes. Las propuestas son para todos los gustos, así que, viajes con quien viajes, te conquistarán.

El vermú de La Latina

Salir de vermú por casi cualquier ciudad española es divertido y genial, con amigos, con pareja o incluso con los críos. Pero si hay una ciudad donde el vermú es un ritual ésa es Madrid. La zona de La Latina y ahora también en muchos locales y tabernas de Lavapiés, esta costumbre de comer algo antes de la comida del sábado es un clásico muy moderno. Todo el mundo está allí, todo el mundo ríe en la calle y todo el mundo se divierte.

Las tapas son excelentes y las mejores, como siempre, son las de siempre: la ensaladilla rusa, los calamares andaluza, el queso curado, el jamón al corte, las indispensables croquetas, el lomo… Y las bravas. Pero hoy en día la variedad es infinita habiendo lugar para pinchos vegetarianos e incluso mini tapas para los niños.

El triángulo del arte

Seas un aficionado al arte o no tengas ni la más remota idea, el llamado triángulo del arte de Madrid merece la pena. El Prado es uno de los museos más importantes del mundo, con una de las mayores colecciones de obras de arte más fascinantes de todos los tiempos. Basta con ver algunas de las salas (todo del tirón es imposible) o bien apostar por alguna de sus exposiciones temporales que son de altísima calidad.

Para los más modernos, el Reina Sofía o el CaixaForum. Las exposiciones temporales son las reinas de la agenda en estos dos centros. Artistas innovadores de todo el mundo han pasado y siguen pasando por sus salas. Y también acogen eventos y talleres interesantes para mayores y para niños.

Picnic en El Retiro

Dedícale tiempo a este increíble pulmón verde de Madrid. Su lago, sus barquitas, sus paseos, sus zonas de relax, su imponente palacio de cristal (a veces acoge exposiciones de arte, fotografía y escultura muy interesantes) y sobre todo el ambiente: no hay mejor ambiente en todo Madrid, sobre todo si vas con los niños.

Llévate un picnic, tu libro de viaje, tus cascos de música, lo que quieras para relajarte y regálate 2 horas sin hacer nada. Sentado en el césped, bajo la frescura de la sombra de los árboles y con el lago de fondo. Parece imposible poder alcanzar tal paz en medio de una urbe como Madrid.

Una obra de teatro

O un monólogo de humor o una ópera o un musical o un concierto en directo. Si vas a Madrid tienes que aprovechar una de las ventajas de la gran capital: la agenda de eventos es inmejorable, tanto en estrenos de cine como en danza y otras disciplinas escénicas que son menos frecuentes. En Madrid puedes encontrar propuestas para todos los gustos y para todas las edades.

Lo único que debes tener en cuenta es que lo mejor es que planifiques y reserves con antelación porque las entradas sueordreferencelen volar y las que no vuelan suelen subir mucho el presupuesto. Aún así, hay planes que merecen mucho la pena y que son gratis, como las actuaciones de cantautores en pequeños bares o los conciertos de grupos menos conocidos pero que pueden dar la sorpresa.

En cuestión de alojamiento, si quieres disfrutar de Madrid en 4 días lo mejor es que apuestes por un hotel céntrico, bien equipado y desde el que puedas ir caminando por todo el Madrid histórico, como por ejemplo el Petit Palace Puerta del Sol (justo al lado de la emblemática zona de las campanadas de fin de año) y el Petit Palace Alfonso XII (frente al Retiro).

Get ready to enjoy the South

The South is always a good place to escape to. Throw yourself into the adventure with your eyes closed. Fill the car with your junk, put your suitcases in the car, grab the children and leave, at that exact moment the word “holiday” rings true. Yes, there is nothing like Andalusia to ensure sun, perfect beaches, ever-lively beach bars, refreshing drinks and fun for all ages, all at your fingertips. So, yes, you heard right: Easter is coming and it’s time to head South!

But out of the whole South that opens before us … where do we choose to stay? On this occasion we’ll dive in and opt for 2 classics: Cadiz (well, the coasts of Chiclana) and Malaga (well, Estepona).

If you stay with the ‘gaditana’ option, you will have some spectacular beaches in which to enjoy the tranquillity and the beauty of one of the best-conserved coastlines in Andalusia. Cliffs, secret coves, beaches with impossible waves in which to show off your surfing skills, taverns where there are endless tapas and parties…. a lot of partying. It is an ideal destination if you are getting away with friends, but if you go with the family, don’t worry: there are a billion ideas for having fun with the kids.

From the beginning you can choose a hotel for families in Chiclana that guarantees you free time. This is possible because the kids will have their mini club, their swimming pool with water games and their special monitors to help them to enjoy their inexhaustible energy while you can lie in the sun, lapping it up in a state of nirvana. After all a little rest doesn’t hurt anyone 😉

In Cadiz do not miss:

– Try a little golf: there are magnificent courses and hotels usually offer discounts.

– Dedicate a whole day to walking around the capital and to viewing its monuments.

– Eat, eat and eat everything you fancy because everything is great.

– Have a drink in the beach bar. A classic.

– Take an excursion through the natural landscapes: don’t forget the camera.

But if Malaga holds more pull for you, be prepared because the coast of Estepona has all that Cadiz has. Here the atmosphere is mainly geared towards families, with the combination of sun-beach-fine foods and partying and this is for all ages. In Estepona there is always something to enjoy with the family, so the best thing to do is, before you take to the road, research the list of activities for Easter in the area and take note of the events that you really can’t miss (and that go beyond the traditional processions).

For rest and relaxation, the most comfortable option is an all-inclusive hotel in Malaga, such as the Saladillo beach resorts, which have everything to entertain you without leaving your facilities: swimming pools, restaurants, relaxation areas, areas for children … And a key location in front of the beach itself.

In Malaga do not miss:

– Visiting the capital: the Picasso Museum, the huge castle that watches over it and its urban beaches.

– Enjoying the lively nightlife of the famous Larios Street.

– Touring the Estepona coastal villages.

– Try spit-roasted sardines by the sea.

For updated information on the list of events and ideas for enjoying these two unique destinations, consult the tourism websites of the Costa del Sol and Cadiz. Also the ‘Andalusia Tourism’ site has interesting suggestions for routes for both the natural environment and gastronomic heritage.
