My daughter is going to be studying in Alicante beginning in January for the semester, probably finishing in late May. My husband and I would like to go visit and I am beginning to look into travel arrangements.
I have never been outside of the US (except Mexico). I am somewhat overwhelmed at the prospect of planning this trip.
So my questions are:
Where in Alicante is a good location to stay. Knowing nothing about the city, I don't know what part is the best. From pictures, I think there might be hotels at the beach?? Is it a swimming beach? Are hotels right there desirable?
Where and how do you reccommend to travel from there? I know I want to spend time in Barcelona, but I'm not sure about distance and transportation. I know we would love to go other places, but I just don't know where.
I imagine we will stay 10 days or so. I don't know yet if we will go in the middle of her stay...March, maybe.....or if we will wait until she is finished and bring her home with us in late May.
I know I need to do much research, so if anyone has suggested resources, I would appreciate that, too!
Thanks so much!
