What to do in Spain

The beauty of Spain is that you can simply lie on a beach, cocktail in hand for the duration of your whole trip. Now it's not that we don't condone the slower pace of life, because we do, and what's a post trip dinner party without a golden tan to show off to all your friends? However there is so much to do in Spain that we just don't want you to miss out, whether it's watching Flamenco in Seville, a carnival in Tenerife, running in Mallorca, foodie tours (well, everywhere), horse riding at a hacienda or surfing in San Sebastian, Spain has it all. Decisions, decisions - here's a list of suggestions of what to do, and good news, the Original Travel team are on hand to advise on what will work best for your trip.
