ALMUÑÉCAR

Almuñécar is a small town in the southwestern region of the Grenadine Coast, and constitutes the tourist capital of the Costa Tropical. Despite its small size there are a lot of places that could be visited and also you could do a lot of activities like surfing or skydiving. 

Nonetheless there are some disadvantages like the long distance between monuments or the amount of tourists that makes difficult walk quietly in some places. Habitually is a familiar trip that we do every year since I was 7 years. We also stay in the same hotel because it is very familiar and nowadays we have friends there.  

Finally if i have to say something to improve it would be swimming pool hours, because i wish i had more time.

Dear sir or madam, I am writing to inform you of the type of trip I would like to take this summer. I would like to stay in a hotel near the beach, that has a private pool and if it is possible that it has common areas where I can play some sports such as tennis or ping pong. I would also like the hotel to have guided tours of the monuments of the place.

The room would be for 2 people and if it is possible that it has a terrace with views of the sea or the pool. Taking this into account, I would like you to offer me different proposals of the places to which I can travel.

Thank you so much, Ana
