The ski station is incredibly expensive.

It may be better to get a place in Granada and go up every day.
One of the online places which do longer term accommodation is Spotahome.

Could anyone advise me on finding a room or studio for the winter? Either in the ski village or Granada itself (although this would be difficult for me to get the mountain every day and the bus seems expensive?)

Thanks in advance!

Rent a motorbike in Granada Spain

Driving round Granada is an excellent way of getting around. I have driven a small vespa for the last 15 years.
The only problem is that the helmet messes up my hair.  You can go up any street that a bus or taxi can so it is much more usefull than a car.

It is possible rent motorbikes in Granada.

The cheapest is a about 20 euros per day for less than a week.
If you rent one for 3 weeks the price would be 12 euros per day or 600 euros.

This would get you a 50cc Yamaha Neos which would be ideal for getting around Granada.

50cc Yamaha Neos
Minimum age: 21 years
Min. Experience: 1 years
Car license: Allowed

You can get bigger bikes but you may have to have a motorbike licence. 

There is almost no rain between May and September so it is perfect.
The weather is not too bad the rest of the year and I use my vespa all year.

Many years ago I have driven down to the coast on a 125 between Christmas and New Year.
The weather was fine.

I am going to stay in Granada for 3 weeks next April.
I would like to rent a small motorcycle or a scooter for my time in Granada.

It is my understanding that motorbikes don't have to obey the traffic restrictions and can go into the Albaycin at any time.

Does anyone know a company that does this?

If you just go to the taxi rank in Malaga airport a normal taxi will take you for about 160 euros.
It is wise to agree the price before you set off.

A less stressful but more expesive alternative is to book a taxi / chauffeur online.
There will be someone holding up a sign when you get of the plane, and they will take you to your destination.
There are several companies offering this service.

One of them is taxi2airport.

My flight is arriving in Malaga at 9.30pm
I am travelling with my mother who does not walk very well.

If it possible to book a taxi from Malaga airport to our hotel in Granada? 
This is a very common question.

In my opinion it is best to buy a ticket to Granada from Malaga in advance.
It makes things easier if you aready have the ticket and it is one less thing to worry about on arrival.

To buy tickets online go to
If you miss a bus they normally let you onto the next bus without paying again as long as you have a ticket.

I am coming into Malaga airport at around 3pm on an Easyjet flight.
I have been told that the best way to get to Granada is by bus.

Is it possible to get a bus from the airport to Granada or do I have to go to Malaga bus station.

Is it best to book in advance or to buy the ticket when I arrive.

Blue is Paper.
On the side they say "Tu papel es importante"
This is clever because "papel" means both paper and role.
So it means "your role/paper is important".

Green  is Glass.
Don't put any ceramics in here.

Yellow  is containers.
This is the most confusing and a category not found in other countries.
It is plastics, aluminium and metal. So:
tins, cans,  Tetra-Brik, plastic bottles, plastic bags etc.

Grey  is general waste.
Anything that won't fit in any of the above.

I doubt if you will need it but there sometimes are other containers.

For example:

    Aceites – Oils
    Ropa – Clothing
    Zapatos – Shoes
    Pilas – Batteries

The above just a basic guide.
If you want to throw away more complicated items you would have to go to the recycling centre.

Here is the address .

Recycling Centre - Punto Limpio Granada

Polígono El Florío,
Open: Tuesday to Saturday from 09:00 to 20:00.
Sunday from 09:00 to 15:00.
