Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Murcia

One of the most striking aspects of Murcia is that the terrain around the city is near desert, a situation that the city's founders tried to remedy by building canals. During the Summer months of July to September the temperatures can reach as high as 34°C and with very little wind. Always be sure to carry around bottled water to combat the intense heat all year round. The local Spaniards are easy going, however as Murcia does not experience as much tourist traffic as the nearby Almería and Costa Blanca, it would be best to carry a pocket phrase book around as English is less common here. You can find travel guides on the Venere website so that you can see all the local attractions going on around your chosen hotel, and begin planning your vacation.
