Málaga, Spain

I won’t beat around the bush.  Our overall opinion of Málaga: eh. It’s a fine place, and many people we met at our hotel absolutely love it here; but in my humble opinion, you can get better versions of all the same things elsewhere in Andalucía, or other parts of Spain.  Better beaches, better Picasso […]
