When traveling, accommodation also counts. If you are planning a getaway to Andalusia and in addition to the places you are going to visit, you care (a lot) about the hotel where you are going to stay, we propose a route through three inns on the Costa de la Luz: that of Cádiz, that of Mazagón and that of Ayamonte. During your stay we are sure that you will not miss anything. In addition to enjoying all the comforts, you will have the perfect excuse to visit these beautiful destinations in southern Spain.

Day 1: Parador de Cádiz

The journey begins in one of the most avant-garde paradores in Spain. Located on the edge of the Mediterranean and with stunning views of the bay, this ultra-modern building will delight any design lover. With all the comforts you can imagine, one of its strong points is the spa, where you will surely be tempted to let yourself be pampered (which is what vacations are for). It also has two great gastronomic spaces: the Parador de Cádiz Restaurant and La Tacita del Atlántico.

Enjoying the hotel is a key part of this experience, but Cádiz is worth getting the most out of. In addition to its beautiful Cathedral, we encourage you to discover its neighborhoods, such as the Pópulo, the oldest, or that of Santa María, with its characteristic baroque houses. But above all, you will find the soul of Cádiz walking through its streets and stopping to enjoy fried fish in one of the typical bars.

Can you imagine a hotel in the heart of the Doñana Natural Park and facing the Atlantic? With a presentation like this, it is not difficult to imagine that this accommodation will become a travel experience in itself. But before arriving at the hotel we make a stop in Jerez de la Frontera to visit one of its famous wineries. And then, in addition to enjoying Parador beachwhich is surrounded by a paradisiacal environment of pine trees, dunes and virgin nature, you can take the opportunity to discover the Doñana National Park, whether on foot, on a horseback route, by 4×4 or even by bicycle. In the parador’s restaurants you will also find an authentic culinary paradise with interesting proposals for both seafood and mountain cuisine based on local and quality products. You can complete the pleasures of this trip by enjoying some delicious white prawns from Huelva or some garlic coquinas.

Day 3: Parador de Ayamonte

The third and last stage of this route along the Costa de la Luz takes us to Ayamonte, a magical border place that will become the perfect ending to the trip. Located on the ruins of the roman castle, from the terrace of the parador you can enjoy one of the most beautiful sunsets in front of the mouth of the Guadiana. You will feel what a real vacation is like, because there are few things more gratifying than being able to rest in a space of luxury, comfort and full of charm. In addition, the hotel offers you the opportunity to sign up for one of the bicycle routes to know the historical heritage of Ayamonte. You can also take kayak excursions through inaccessible corners of Isla Canela.

Taking advantage of the proximity, we encourage you to visit the coast of Portugal by crossing the Guadiana International Bridge. On the other side of the river are charming towns in the Portuguese Algarve such as Alcoutim or Castro Marim.
