Costa del Sol's brilliant sunlight doesn't cost you a thing

Extending from the cliffs at Torremolinos in the northeast, to the tiny village of San Luis de Sabinillas in the south, the Costa del Sol is a string of Mediterranean cities and villages that's a hit with families, friends on vacay, backpackers, and honeymooners. Celebrities stop by to hang at posh nightclubs and practice their drives on the links. Sun worshippers lounge on the beaches or wander the picturesque parks. A Costa del Sol vacation rental is the ideal place to relax after a long day of shopping, dining, and outdoor fun.

Take a guided tour. Then guide yourself toward sunny beaches

There's so much to see in Costa del Sol, you'd be well advised to sign up for a guided walking or Segway tour to get the lay of the land. Marbella, the largest city and chicest resort town in the area, boasts a charming old town that's a pleasure to stroll. Estepona, a fishing village in the south, has streets lined with vibrant murals. Of course, don't let all that walking distract you from the region's beaches. Most are backed by promenades lined with shops, bars, and restaurants. Some cater to families, others to late-night party people.

Admire orchids and artworks all along Costa del Sol

Each village along the Costa del Sol has its own collection of beaches, museums, and cultural attractions, so take your pick. Perhaps you're a nature lover who'd appreciate the Orchidarium in Estepona. It features 1500 orchid species and 5000 subtropical plants, flowers, and trees. Maybe your Costa del Sol vacation rental is further north, near the Centro de Arte Contemporaneo in Mijas and its impressive collection of Picasso ceramics. Or after a beach day in Benalmadena, mosey over to the largest Buddhist stupa in Europe. This domed meditation center houses relics and beautiful religious paintings.

A few crowds in June, a few clouds in January

They don't call it the Sun Coast for nothing. Your Costa del Sol vacation rental will be bathed in sunlight throughout the year, although summer is when days are most reliably warm and bright. Average highs are in the 80s, the ocean is warm, and visitors pack the streets, beaches, and nightclubs. Spring and early fall are still warm and still popular, and winter temps are nothing to run from either. From November to February, nights are cold and occasional showers might ruin your tan, but you'll have more peace, quiet, and money left in your wallet.

The Sun Coast is set up like your own personal safari

This most brilliant of coastlines puts a variety of landscapes on display: beaches backed by cliffs, bays framed by sand dunes, all within sight of majestic mountain ranges. The animal viewing options are endless. Take a cable car ride up to Calamorro Mountain in the town of Benalmadena, for example, and enjoy views of the Mediterranean, and eagle and vulture sightings. Then head back down to sea level and the butterfly park, featuring your fluttery friends, iguanas, and tortoises. Commune with crocodiles in a park in Torremolinos or encounter orangutans in Fuengirola's famous zoo. The world is your jungle.
