As there is so little advertised due to the restrictions for COVID-19, we have combined the 3 areas we normally cover in the Costa Cálida. Many of the usual events in the area have been cancelled or changed. Street Markets have been reinstated with the usual conditions such as keeping social distancing and the wearing of masks, but the usual Artisan Markets are not taking place.
Please adhere to these conditions for everyone’s safety. Most of the exhibitions etc are still being held, but check at Tourist Offices to confirm that events are still taking place.
