Travel to Spain is Back in Vogue

Spain is back in vogue again, so says an international travel news report. After the economic downturn of the past couple of years, Spain is once again seeing a resurgence of tourism, mainly to its sunny Mediterranean locals. Traditionally, Spain is the third most visited country in the world, after France and the United States. There are timeshare rentals, exchanges and even resales all available to you in Spain at Ibiza and Mallorca, where you can enjoy all that a great Mediterranean vacation has to offer.

Exchange your timeshare for a fun and exciting stay on Ibiza (see photo), one of Spain's Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea. Ibiza is an especially beautiful island with hidden cove beaches, high towering cliffs and a dense covering of pine trees.

Its capital, Ibiza-Town, is one of Europe's oldest towns, and was founded by the Carthaginians as an important fortress. Today the town is a holiday destination for the world's rich and famous. Very well known for its nightlife and party atmosphere, officials have been working to create family-friendly activities as well.

There are several timeshare rentals, as well as resales, available on Mallorca, another of Spain's spectacular Mediterranean Balearic Islands. Mallorca has more than 70 beaches ranging from vast bays to tiny rocky coves. The main tourist beaches offer water sports including windsurfing, water skiing, and parasailing.

When visiting Mallorca you might want to rent a car to explore the north side of the island. Here you'll have access to the beautiful Tramuntana Mountains, the "life blood" of Mallorca. There are many public hiking trails available, as well as guided hikes off the beaten path. The trails take you from olive groves into pine and oak forests, and past relics of Mallorca's cultural past including remnants of ancient snow huts, lime kilns and terraces.

When you don't want to drive, you can view Mallorca's natural beauty by riding on the Sollier Railway, a vintage train made of solid mahogany, as it leisurely travels about 30 miles through the Tramuntana Mountains.

According to the Mallorcan Tourist Board, the island has over 2500 restaurants. When you want a break from your timeshare kitchen you'll have plenty of eateries from which to choose. Mallorca has a distinctive culinary tradition including Sobrassada (a sausage) and Arros Brut (saffron rice cooked with chicken, pork and vegetables). You'll especially enjoy Ensaïmada, a sweet pastry dating back to the 17th century, often topped with apricots or filled with sweet cream and chocolate or almond paste.

So plan a timeshare vacation to sunny Spain, where, if you're lucky, you might even get to see the miles of almond orchards bursting with bright pink blossoms along the azure blue Mediterranean coast.
