The final stretch of summer is fast approaching but the hot sunny days at the beach are not over yet! If you are among those who can’t decide whether to travel or not and where to go then don’t worry. September is still a great month during which many destinations are still bathed in sunshine. We at RIU want to make it easy for you and help you decide. This time, we recommend awesome Andalusia.

Andalusia: a land full of traditions

It’s a destination famous for its joyful atmosphere and the special light and colour that makes it unique. Let’s also not forget its Mediterranean cuisine, one that has conquered so many palates against the background of the ubiquitous ‘sevillana’ music. The polka dots, flowers and flamenco shows are equally famous. Let’s face it; you can’t go to the south of Spain without donning traditional Andalusian finery and watching a performance where the art is in literally making the stage tremble. And we can’t forget, of course, the people who will make you feel right at home and imbue you with the typical ‘joie de vivre’ embodied in all Andalusians.

Another option on offer is the Hotel Riu Monica, a property that features in our Adults Only range, located in the famous small village of Nerja. It is particularly well-known for being the main backdrop to a popular Spanish TV series entitled Verano Azul (Blue Summer). You will be especially smitten by its charming streets in which the whitewashed houses lead down to the deep blue of the sea in the background. This is a place also well-known for its famous cave, the Cueva de Nerja, located 158 metres above sea level and a magnet for curious visitors every year.
