Handcraft and gourmet Market in La Cala


Two weeks ago, the blog post we published here about the handcraft market in Mijas was very popular among our guests. Because of this, today we would like to recommend you another great market you can visit if you are currently on holiday at Hotel Yaramar.

The market we mean is the handcraft and gourmet market that is on from 11:00 A.M to 8:30 P.M. on the Supersol square of La Cala de Mijas, and which can be visited up until tomorrow, the 11th of December.

Getting to La Cala from Fuengirola is easy as they are quite close and the bus line that connects Fuengirola with Marbella has a stop in there.

If you would like to visit La Cala de Mijas and you are a big market fan, we are sure you will really enjoy this one.

Besides, it is the perfect moment to start with the Christmas shopping!

Malaga’s Christmas lights 2018


It feels like yesterday when we were celebrating the start of 2018 and now December is suddenly here, and Christmas can now be felt in the air.

As you know at Hotel Yaramar we are massive fans of Christmas as everybody is much more cheerful and towns and cities are busier and they look beautiful with lovely Christmas lights.

Malaga is in fact one of the most popular cities in Spain for its beauty during Christmas, as its city centre, and especially Calle Larios, look absolutely amazing this time of year.

The Christmas lights in Calle Larios are always fantastic, and their design is stunning as it is inspired in cathedrals. 

Malaga’s Christmas lighting opening ceremony 2018 was on Friday the 30th of November, since then until the 6th of January, the beautiful lights will be on daily from 6:30 P.M. till 2:00 A.M.

As in previous years, there will be a music and light shows, though this year instead of twice it will be 3 times a day (at 6:30 P.M, 8:00 P.M and 9:30 P.M).

The music themes chosen this time are “Rondo veneziano-Zodiaco”, ‘Rondo veneziano-Música fantasía’, ‘Villancico altozano’ by Café Quijano and “Cosas de la Navidad” by Raúl Charlo.

If you have the fortune of staying at Hotel Yaramar this December, we certainly recommend you not to miss a visit to Malaga city centre.

Because Christmas in Costa del Sol is simply magic!
