This book keeps it's 5 star rating but I do wish the author would hop on a plane, grab a GPS and update the book with GPS coordinates, better maps (and updated parking information). What a great tax write-off that would be! Or, if I'd been thinking, we'd have started doing this and taking notes and offered to be her partner in an update.

Seriously though, this has a great variety of trips that can be reached easily in one day. Basically, she has done what MWR should have done by organizing the day trips, giving (mostly accurate) driving instructions with parking tips, meal tips, shopping tips and lists of fun things to do. There is an appendix in the back to break things up by what is more fun for kids, outdoorsy things etc.

For those of us stationed in Rota this is the best local guide travel book that can be had.

Highly Recommended (and perhaps anyone heading to Rota soon and/or will be here awhile) can contact her about updating things.

Great book!

I have been stationed in Rota, Spain, and buy a copy for those family and guests before they come so they have an idea of what they would like to do.

All trips are easy an well layed out.

My family uses it a last minute planner for the weekends. We can not decide what to do.. We just pick up the book and take a pick.

Most of what Southern Spain has to offer is covered with few omittions. Written down to earth and simple.

This book was pretty much filled with information of no use to a person travelling in Andalusia. It was so basic, almost geared for kids ages 10-12. A simple google search of the towns mentioned within the book would provide much more insight into each town/city and be of more benefit for the person on holiday. Too basic, and poorly written.

This is an excellent book to have on hand if you are moving to Rota.
We put this in our carry-on luggage and thought of all the fun things we could do when we finally arrived to Spain.
The book has become very useful. It gives specific instructions how to get around, but I would also recommend visiting the towns "Department of Tourism", they will give you a detailed map.

I have been in the area for a little over a year and it has been a great investment. My family and I have enjoyed countless hours on the road with this book. Very detailed and easily translated. I would recommend this book for anyone who is looking to be Stationed or even looking to retire in the Area. Thanks for the Great Memories.
