5 Comments on “Location: El Puerto de Santa Maria

  1. I had an excellent week in Spark. I didn´t expect it would that good. I loved everything about it and I would really like to come back again.

  2. Zeer hartelijke en inspirenende omgeving (het Spark gebouw en zijn bewoners) Veel lesstof doorgenomen maar natuurlijk niet genoeg tijd om heel diep te gaan. Toch heel veel opgestoken en geen moment van verveling deze week

  3. Mensen die je op straat ontmoet zijn echt super aardig en ontspannen. Ze willen je echt helpen met alles wat je vraagt.

  4. Great atmosphere in El Puerto! Very friendly people who want to help you improve your Spanish.

  5. The town of El Puerto is unique in a way that can only be felt by visiting it. When you first visit it feels like a run-of-the-mill traditional sleepy Andalusian town, but once you spend some time there you come to find that it has so much more! El Puerto is remarkably welcoming for a little town, especially in its way it treats us foreigners, and there is so much to see and do. You can spend your afternoons under the sun on one of its many beautiful beaches, visit the castle, have a beer and some tapas in one of its million different restaurants or bars, go horse riding, play a game of padel or even go sailing in nearby Puerto Sherry!

    If anything El Puerto is a surprise and mystery, and merits taking some time to investigate.
