Murcia and La Manga – Flying on a Budget

by Ken Morris

The beautiful region of Murcia in Spain is a vacation hotspot for many Europeans as well as those from other parts of the globe. The amount of visitors to this area has greatly increased and much of that can be attributed to finding flights to Murcia at a price that is considerably less than in years past. Budget airlines in Europe have increased frequency and forced all airlines in the market to reduce their fares which means a savings for the traveling public.

Murcia is a perfect location for exploring the Costa Calida on the Southeastern Coast of Spain. Weather in this region is pleasant all year round so it is popular in summer and winter, though less so in the latter since it’s cooler which makes flights that much cheaper. La Manga and Cartagena is a short distance from Murcia which are huge beach and coastal destinations.

There is really something for everyone in this region. If you enjoy outdoor activities there are plenty of things to keep you busy. There are world class golf courses so you can tee off with the beautiful coastal landscape as your backdrop. The beaches along the Costa Calida are exceptional so if relaxation is more your style there is much to choose from. There are also hiking trails and for the more adventurous there is even climbing. Other recreational activities are available to accommodate any outdoor visitor regardless of physical ability or time of year.

Besides outdoor activities there are plenty of other things to keep you busy and entertained. The area is rich in history and culture so there are many opportunities for visiting sites, museums and galleries. There is fantastic shopping to entice any budget; home wares of traditional quality are on offer which makes great souvenirs for yourself or for friends and family back home.

To find flights to Murcia at a price that fits your budget use the internet. It has the best deals and many low cost airlines only permit bookings online. Travel websites are easy to use and will compare flight departure times, companies and prices for the days you wish to travel. Keep in mind though that some budget airlines only sell tickets on their own website so it pays to shop around.

There are a variety of accommodations available in Murcia and the surrounding areas. The amount of luxury really depends on how much you’re willing to spend but deals can be found. Hotels or service apartments can be booked online. Discounts are generally available during non-peak travel days and seasons (winter).

Murcia and the Costa Calida area have something for everyone and pleasant weather all year round so don’t pass it up as a holiday destination.
