    You'll find plenty of great information here and everyone is very helpful. Orisson fills up quickly, so I would book that as early as you can. The first day from SJPdP is brutal and breaking it up is very sensible. I would definitely consider...

    Spanish ATMs often fed me 50€ notes. No one getting these complained but I could tell they weren't happy. They certainly wouldn't be happy getting $50 notes and likely aren't enchanted with George Washington portraits either.

    Hi John. Welcome. Please don’t take this wrong way but be careful where you source information from. Here is generally a good option. I note your other post was on a thread about some wildly inaccurate credit card info. Cheers!

    Nope. Euros are the currency of Spain. Dollars are not accepted nor easily exchanged. Your best bet is to use a no fee debit card at ATMs. I use a Schwab account debit card which charges no fees and rebates all ATM charges worldwide. You can...
