unfortunately yes, with the euro the way it is now, it's almost the same as the pound. but the spanish don't bring the prices down to compensate. we found a huge difference last year so have chosen to go to eurocamp in france this year, it's coming in at around half the price as last years holiday and for an extra week aswell.

Menorca does tend to be a bit more expensive than the rest of Spain. We were there last July & the prices hadn't changed much from the previous year, except for the price of petrol. Even with the terrible exchange rate we didn't spend much more than usual.
