I have heard mixed opinions on whether I should take a taxi (50 euros but safer?) from the airport to my hotel(I assume the taxi will take you to your exact location) or to take the shuttle bus and then walk a 10 min. walk to my hotel(4 euros). What is your advice?
Consider I am solo and that the walk includes baggage.
What about the best way to depart Barcelona and get to the airport in the fastest way?
I wanted to thank everyone for their input on the pickpocketing situation. It seems the best thing to do is be very viligant. It would probably be better to not be travelling alone... I was just concerned because I have asthma medicine that I keep in my purse and I wouldn't want my purse to be snatched.
I would be concerned with taking pictures and fearing thieves would pounce when your guard is down.
Is it reccommended to go to the beachfront and if so what would be the best way to get there(which stops) or should I try to avoid the metro as much as possible?
Would it be wise to not venture out alone at night?
