Costa del Sol Vacations & Travel Tips

When to Go

May is the perfect time to visit the Costa del Sol when the crowds are thinner, and the weather is just right. Warm sea breezes blow throughout the summer, giving the region the nickname, Costa del Viento (windy coast). Summertime is the perfect season for sunbathing and sightseeing, with little or no rain. The majority of rainfall occurs from October to March.
