  • The perfect nature and relaxation kilometers of pristine beaches with all services in short I highly recommend a visit to Santander that is a wonderful city with an almost typical cuisine but with cheerfulness and Swiss of Spain!

  • Visit almost forced in Santander, there is a trenecitos service that offers you a complete visit to the island, area leisure for children and even a small zoo in marine animals. Wonderful views of the sardinero. Recommended to visit in the morning, there are less people.
