Not sure how many people have had the chance to explore the southern Murcian coast but Aguilas is worth a look and apparently has one of the best carnival weeks in Spain between 15th - 22nd (or 25th - can't remember if it's a week or 10 days!).  It is a really nice seafront with lots of cafes and shops.  The day we went it was a howling gale in April last year so I probably didn't see it at its best but the carnival is probably worth a look if you're over then??

Hi

sounds like it would be worth gowing and having a look as we are

 over during the carnival with our 2 daughters. Could anyone tell us

the time it takes to get to aguilas from condado and the best directions.

  thanks all. Pat & Jackie

Pat / Jackie

See my post under beaches. Aguillas is signposted all the way from the end of the MU603, probably takes about an hour, although i did plenty of detours as well, it's a nice easy drive, road runs parrellel with the AP7 Toll Road all the way, so if you want to make it a really easy drive then suspect you could get on that, but it takes the fun away from seeing the surrounding area and just driving off down side roads not knowing where they are going .

I'm also over 15th to 21st and plan to go and have a butchers at the Carnival.

Dave

Hi,

This also caught my eye.  We too are over that week with family and would be interested in taking in the atmosphere of a Spanish Carnival!  Any idea of what the programme is i.e best days to go.

Pauline, Martin & Dan

The Aguilas Carnival is a "people carnival" with a long history which has been celebrated for the last two centuries, with strong social and cultural elements. This is a two-week "fiesta" which requires an entire year of hard work and preparation in which the entire population of Aguilas participates in one way or another. The Aguilas Carnival is famous for its parades and, increasingly, as the "Night Carnival" in which most of the population dresses in costume and comes out to enjoy the Aguilas evening. These parades, which include the participation of 4,000 people, floats, groups, and musical bands, take place in an atmosphere of revelry which affects the crowd and makes it part of the Carnival.  

Join Dragontours on Sunday 22nd February 2009

Price per person 26€ includes coach from Puerto de Mazarron, Bolnuevo, Country Club & Camposol to Aguilas & a seat at the famous parade.

Call Kathy on 0034.968.199.021 or email camposol@dragontours.net

The letter 'A' before drink is pretty apt for the operating theatre, must be £4 a pint now in there at current exchange rates,

Hopefully a few dry evenings to be had so might be warm enough to sit outside in a jumper mankini - perish the thought
