Also need advice on places to go, things to do, over the long New Years weekend, as well as the following weekend, along with estimated transportation costs.
We arrive late at night on the 26th and leave early on the 9th, with the wife working during the weekdays, I just hanging about the hotel for the most part, and the two of us wanting to see the area on the weekends.
As to restaurants and things to do we always prefer to "go local" rather than go tourist, if you know what I mean.
P.S. We do not speak Spanish but should have the trusty pocket translator with us although I don't think it helps a lot... :-)
