This one goes out to the Surfers! Groupon.ie offers a great deal for 7 nights at Spain’s north coast close to Santander. Stay at Latas Surf House (91% on Tripadvisor + Certificate of Excellence) the perfect and very popular accommodation for spending all day surfing. You share a room with one other person and get a great breakfast on each morning. Daily surf lessons are also included by excellent and experienced instructors and they take place close to the hotel in the Bay of Biscany, which is one of the largest beaches in the region. The voucher also includes the renting of surf equipment and a paddle surf class is put on top! The staff of the hotel is super friendly and the atmosphere chilled out so look forward to spend some easy going days in the beautiful North of Spain.
Close-by Santander is also worth a trip. The city hosts the Magdalena Palace, dramatically located in the peninsula overlooking the sea. If you like animals then I’d recommend you to visit the Cabarceno Wildlife Park. Another option of a short trip would be Reinosa, a historical little town on the lakeside, with a beautiful romantic Old Town.
The voucher works for 2 – 14 days but the example I chose is for August, 28th until 4th September, since I found cheap flights on those dates (book on BudgetAir.ie and fly from Dublin to Santander). But please feel free to play around with travel dates and modify them according to your flexibility! Once you bought the voucher you have to book within 10 days by phone, though, remember that! On this trip, I’m sure you learn a lot :)
