My husband and I will be renting an apartment long term in Torrox Costa for a year from 1st June 2012, having never been to this area could anyone give us the following Information:-

  • We would like to bring our 3G MiFi with us (Mobile Internet - No phone line required) - which Spanish service provider has the best connection coverage to buy a  sim card from?
  • Does anyone know of a reasonably priced & reliable transfer service from Malaga Airport to Torrox Costa?
  • Is there a Medical Centre close to this Resort?
  • Are there any "Big" Supermarkets in the Torrox Costa area to do our monthly shop?
  • Do the buses run regular to various locations and are they a reasonable cost per trip?
  • Can anyone give us a rough Idea on the cost of living (ie: Alcohol/Food shopping/eating out/electricity/water & garbage bills?
  • We like to walk for at least an hour or more each day, are there plenty of places to wander?
  • Is there a good English community?

Any further details on this area would be gratefully received

 The only thing I can help you with really is the internet thing...


You can go to any movistar and vodafone shop with your device that you have at the moment, and ask them for a monthly sim card with no contract, and use it month to month. Depending on your device, you may be locked into a specific company, like vodafone or movistar, or orange, however, normally they give the devices over here for free when you purchase the sim card.


Hope that helps!

Thanks for the Info it's really helpful.

Do you know how much a monthly sim card would cost and would I have to just walk into the shop each month to top up?

Depending on how much data you want to download they have tier pricing structures. I think movistar charge 1gb at 20€ 2gb 30€ and unlimited 40€. I think i have remembered that right... All payments for terms longer than 30 days are direct debited. However I do think you can pay monthly also in any movistar shop under slightly different terms.
