suggestions for activities

Hello,

I'll be renting a house in August near Ayerbe, Spain with 3 kids (ages 9, 12, and 15) and I'd welcome suggestions for fun activities in the area, including waterparks or other places to swim. Restaurant suggestions are welcome to.

Thanks!

Interesting location, especially for outdoor activities, but remember, it will be warm in August, even in the mountains.

You'll only be about an hour from Jaca, the "pearl of the Pyrenees", and from there another hour or so up to Formigal, Sallent de Gállego and Panticosa, some of the best mountains in the middle of the Aragon Pyrenees. The following web site will give you a welth of information on the area.

The area parks are Parque Nacional de Ordesa y Monte Perdido and Parque Natural de la Sierra y Cañones de Guara.

You're also not far from Zaragoza (1-1/2 hour drive), so you can take the kids down for Expo 2008 (http://www.expozaragoza2008.es/)

You might also contact the Tourist Office of Spain in New York. They can send you additional information of the area. Tel: 212-265-8822

I believe there is one in Zaragoza, built for the Expo, but I don't remember seeing it last winter when we stopped there for lunch.
