At the end of February I will be spending a week in Malaga.
I intend to explore the city thoroughly in the mornings and then be back in the La Malagueta and La Caleta neighborhoods in the mid-afternoon for a bite to eat. And to just enjoy the neighborhoods before going out for a late dinner each night.
I am especially intrigued by the chiringuito concept. Is late February to early in the season for these open-air restaurants? Are there any that are especially recommended? I've noticed one called El Cachalote on Google Maps that I will visit. But I'd really like to visit some of the very traditional, open-air ones where they are using a boat filled with sand to hold their fire. It sounds so authentic I can't resist.
Any suggestions for such a chiringuito in those two neighborhoods? Is there any suggested pubs one should stop in to get a late afternoon pint after beach-side espetos? Also, is there a particular difference between a marisqueria and a chiringuito?
And one last question: would a jacket normally be recommended for the nights in the last week of February?
