Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Murcia

The Murcia Region has a lot to see and do and you should be able to get around and see it within a couple of days. The best way to do it if you have either a car or a bus is to base yourself out of Murcia city in a hostel and take day trips as not many of the towns worth visiting have hostels in them. The two major places are Murcia city and Cartagena of which Murcia is the most central.

Murcia is a small and pretty city with quite a few things to see and do. You should be able to get around most of it within a day. There are several hostels here in the city but make sure that if you are coming during a festival or holiday season you book in advance to avoid missing out. Oh and Murcia seems to love their festivals. People will be out in hoards with music in the street dancing.

There are a few hostels in Cartagena but it is worth booking for them well in advance also if you are planning on spending some time in this lush, historical beach side town. The hostels can book out a week or so in advance. You can get here on a local bus from Murcia fairly easily and it takes about an hour. Some of the hostels are quite a way out of the town and not accessible unless you have a car so make sure you do your research on where you are staying before you book.

The best way to see the Murcia region based on the lack of towns with hostels is based in a Murcia hostel and with a car. With Murcia as your base you can make day trips to adjacent towns such as Lorca, Totana and Caravaca De la Cruz to get your fix of castles, archaeology and medieval history. There are other towns inland and along the coast which feature these things as well but these are three of the more prominent towns that are easier to.get to. And then when you are done with that you can call in at one of the many beach towns such as Aguilas, Mazarron or of course Cartagena and get your relaxation on.
