Just a short one hour flight from Barcelona is the beautiful island of Menorca. One of four islands in Balearic island chain, Menorca is an outdoor lovers paradise and has been named a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Smaller than it's more populated neighbors Ibiza and Majorca, Menorca maintains a quieter pace of life. One that is ideal for our vacation there. Less traffic, less people, more relaxation. While all the islands are beautiful in their own right, we prefer our town squares, restaurants, beaches and walkways free of mass tourism. You get a truer feel of the land and the culture this way. You can stroll in peace while you window shop through the many local boutiques. Find a spot on the sand without crowding. Stand up paddle in caves and coves with absolutely no one else around. Menorca is a Spanish dream land and we can't wait to share it with you!

And that is just the beginning of it all. We have charted a private sail boat to live like royalty for the day in Menorca. And to cap off your trip we will immerse you in local culture with an evening at the grand celebration of the town of Mahon. This 4 day event called Festes de Gracia is an experience unlike anything you have ever seen. We will be a part of the kick off celebration where hordes of locals sing and dance in the streets followed by a beautiful parade of black stallions in the town square. All of this and it doesn't even begin to describe all of the sights, sounds, smells, people and beauty you will absorb while in Spain. Get ready to be amazed. As always, it is your vacation.

Dining: Do we even need to say it? Spain is dining heaven! Around every corner is culinary bliss and it is a essential part of the Spanish experience. Dining with the gods is guaranteed but it is more than that in Spain. It is a way of life. One that may take a few days to get use to but then suddenly you are sitting in a beautiful town square at 10 pm, listening to a local strumming the sounds of Catalan and laughing with your friends and it all makes sense. Maybe we have it all wrong and this is how life should be! Don't worry. Siesta from 2 to 4 is also a way of life here.
Given the vast array of dining options, we have not added the cost of an inclusive dining plan to this trip however breakfast is included during our stay in Menorca. Part of dining in Spain is learning where and how to do it without spending a fortune. For example inclusive breakfast in most hotels will cost you around $20 a day. Take a morning walk outside of your hotel to a local cafe and enjoy a traditional Spanish breakfast of Bocadillos or Pan Con Tomate for $7. The options are vast and you can pick and choose what type of dining best suites you. Whatever you choose you can count on your taste buds being on sensory overload every day in Spain!
