The first of them, María Zambrano, thanks to the Spanish high speed train AVE, has become one of the most important stations in Spain due to the amount of passengers that use it.

Open in 2006 this is not an old school station as it offers train services but also a wide leisure area and many stores as in the same building there is a well known shopping centre called Vialia.

Vialia has two floors and more than 100 establishment of all kind. There are shops, restaurants, a multi screen cinema, a bowling alley and many more things that will make you have a fantastic time.

Although it is not the most central station in Malaga it is quite close to the city centre which means that you can have a nice walk and visit Malaga and its monuments.

Benalmadena Butterfly Park


If we think about springtime we think about butterflies. If you love nature and you have special interest in these beautiful animals Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, recommends you to visit the Benalmadena Butterfly Park.

This Butterfly Park is the biggest park dedicated to butterflies in Europe and it is located in Benalmadena Pueblo in a thai style building beside the buddhist stupa which is also worth a visit.

Since it opened in 2011 around 1.500 butterflies from different tropical areas in the world live and breed in its gardens.

In this park butterflies are obviously the stars though during your visit you will also be able to observe several plant species and other animals.

Visiting this unique attraction in Costa del Sol is very easy. The park is open daily from 10 A.M to 8 P.M and to get there you will have to take a train in Fuengirola and get off in Benalmadena-Arroyo de la Miel. Once you are there, just outside the train station you will have to get the L2 bus that connects Arroyo de la Miel with the Butterfly Park and the Buddhist centre.

Make the most of your stay at Hotel Florida Spa and enjoy observing the beautiful colours of the butterflies and the wonderful views of Costa del Sol that Benalmadena Pueblo offers!
