Fair of Fuengirola 2018


As many of you might already know the Fair of Fuengirola starts this week on Saturday, the 6th of October.

For this reason and because we love sharing our lovely traditions with you on Friday, the 5th of October, Hotel Florida Spa has organised at 11:30 A.M. by the pool a great free activity about the fair specially for you!

In it we will give you information about the fair, we will inform you about what is going on in town and at the fairground, we will explain you about the traditional flamenco dress and the accessories that go with it and we will explain you what to eat and drink at the fairground during the fair.

Regarding the official programme of the fair we would like to highlight and recommend the flamenco mass in honour of Virgen del Rosario. Every year this is held on the 7th of October at 10:00 on Constitution Square, right in the city centre.  This mass is not a common one; it does have the wow factor as it is quite festive and most of the many who attend it come wearing beautiful flamenco dresses.

If you want to have fun with us and get some information about the fair, we would love to see you on Friday at 11:30 in our Snack Bar. By the way, besides good info we will also give a free glass of rebujito, the most popular drink of the fair, to all guests who attend our fun special activity.

Enjoy the fair at Hotel Florida Spa!!

“Japanese Calmness & Andalusian Passion”


Last week here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa we recommend you visit Mijas to enjoy its fantastic flamenco shows.

Today’s recommendation will not make you have to go too far, as it is a fun plan in Fuengirola.

The plan in fact is a free exhibition called “Japanese Calmness and Andalusian Passion”.

This beautiful exhibit includes works by Japanese artist Michiko Bokka, and it will be on display from Friday the 14th of September till Friday the 5th of October in Casa de la Cultura, located right in the city centre of Fuengirola.

Michiko Bokka moved to Andalusia in 2004, her works are made using India ink and in them she tries to find calmness and dynamism.

Bokka has exhibited her works in countries like Italy, United States and Japan, so it is a real privilege to have one of her exhibitions in Fuengirola.

If you love art and the Japanese culture and you are on holiday with us at Hotel Yaramar we recommend you not to miss the opportunity to visit this great exhibition.

We are sure you will really enjoy it!

Flamenco Shows in Mijas


Last week, here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommended you attend the fantastic sevillanas dancing classes that the Fuengirola Council has organised this month as a warm up for the upcoming fair.

Today, our recommendation is also about dancing as every week, both on Wednesdays and Saturdays at midday there is a free flamenco show in Mijas Pueblo.

On Wednesday the show is in Plaza Virgen de la Peña and on Saturday it is in Plaza de la Constitución.

As it is outdoors, the shows are on weather permitting, but as in Costa del Sol we have a good weather most of the times, they rarely get cancelled.

Due to the great location of Hotel Florida Spa, getting from our hotel to Mijas Pueblo is very easy and quick, as the bus to Mijas is taken in Fuengirola bus station, which is only 5 minutes away walking from us.

If you would like to watch this superb free show and visit one of the most beautiful whitewashed villages in Andalusia, Wednesdays and Saturdays are the perfect days to do it!

Enjoy flamenco in Mijas Pueblo!
