Hip Guide to Spain

Barcelona Super Hotel Deals!

Spain is one of the most fun and exciting countries in the world to visit. From snowcapped peaks and ski resorts down to the palm treed semi-tropical shores of the blue Med, Spain will delight your senses and keep you coming back.

Cosmopolitan cities like Madrid and Barcelona are rich with art and culture. The extraordinary coastline along the Mediterranean hosts dozens of resort towns where guests from all over Europe stay for weeks on end in high rise hotels, condos and villas. It's not hard to find the sun, sand and surf in Spain. Yet hundreds of quaint villages in the interior wait to be explored far from the hustle of cities and tourist destinations.

This site will help you explore all Barcelona and Spain have to offer the visitor including 1000+ Hotels, restaurants, museums, shopping, an event calendar, Spain map and factsheet, Spanish Recipes, Tips for Tourists, Spain Forum and our Spain Photo Gallery. We even have a Bookstore with a good selection of travel books about Spain. Browse around our site and let us know what you think!
