    This is a great list, but I’d love to add Costa Tropical too! :-) Of course I am a little biased.

    We love living in Andalucia and just spent the past few days checking out Mojácar, Garrucha and Vera. We had a great time and were so pleased that “high season” is less crowded compared to our area. It was very peaceful and lovely. That said, we love our town of Almuñécar and it was good to be home and see the life in the city. No matter what, there are always new areas to explore. I was just searching your site for Alhama de Granada, as that is where we are going to explore this week. Thanks!
