is very touristic and overpriced. But if you travel trough the south of Spain, it's a must to visit.
Its a lot cheaper in
now with the Euro rate. It is really worth the visit -- not just cheap fags and booze, even dining out is cheaper!
looks better from twenty kilometers away.
's main problem seems to be the British expats found in every bar and restaurant complaining that it's crap and not like England (they do the same in Spain) and the low life Spanish cigarette smugglers stuffing half-dismantled mopeds with cigarettes on every street corner. The locals are extremely friendly; depending on the time of year, weather can be quite warm and humid. Shopping is extremely cheap if you avoid the establishments aimed at lightening tourists' wallets. If you expect Spanish food (like tapas) in a British country, be prepared to pay for it. Historically, the place is amazing. To see all of the tourist attractions (many by appointment with a military guide) you need at least a week in the country. To really enjoy the place (and the beaches) several weeks and an open mind are recommended.
is a dump at the bottom of Europe. Stay in Spain -- it's cheaper and a lot nicer.
I keep going back to
since I was sixteen (am now fifty-five). It has changed a lot and not all for the best, admittedly. As with anywhere else, though, you need to look at the history and culture of the place -- the locals are really terrific and multicultural. If you want a week on the beach with lots of booze and karaoke, go to Spain. A cheap hotel saves money for everything else you may want to do. I'd live in Gibraltar if I could.
