All's not lost though - it's still worth having a look at Thomson to see what they can offer you in the way of a good deal.

Costa del Sol

Andalucia embodies all that is typically Spanish...sun-soaked beaches, passionate flamenco dancers, Moorish castles, orange groves, proud matadors and sleepy whitewashed towns perched on dramatic hillsides. The Costa del Sol is the perfect gateway to this quintessential picture of Spain and offers so much more besides.

Food & Wine in the Costa del Sol
Southern Spain is the birthplace of tapas bars. Sometimes called 'pinchos', tapas are small bar snacks that are usually served as an accompaniment to a glass of sherry, wine or beer. Even the smallest of villages in Andalucia play host to at least one tapas bar where locals head in the evenings to enjoy a drink, a bite to eat and of course a chat with friends. Whet your appetite with 'jamon serrano', salt-cured ham that's dried out in the mountain air, or 'tortilla espanola', Spanish omelette made from potato and onions bound with eggs. Other tempting dishes include 'calamares fritos', deep fried squid rings drizzled with lemon juice, 'albondigas', meatballs served in a rich tomato sauce, and 'queso manchego', a mature sheep's cheese. Tapas are normally eaten standing rather than sitting down which adds to the vibrant atmosphere experienced in the bar.

Days & Nights in the Costa del Sol
If you like to relax by day and party by night, you'll love the cheerful exuberance of Torremolinos, Benalmadena and Fuengirola. The streets are lined with an abundance of lively bars, discos and clubs where you can dance the night away, take to the stage in a karaoke contest or laugh at a comedian on the cabaret circuit. In contrast, evenings in Estepona, Nerja and Marbella are more low key. Visitors often prefer to enjoy the buzz of local tapas bars, the romantic allure of waterfront restaurants or the beguiling draw of a flamenco show where you can experience the compelling rhythm of a Spanish guitarist and the flashing moves of a dazzling dancer.

Sights & Sounds in the Costa del Sol
Sightseeing: Inland from the Costa del Sol is Andalucia's picturesque capital, Seville. Bask in the warm sunshine as you relax in one of the many pavement caf�s that flank the orange-tree lined banks of the River Guadalquivir. Stroll through the tranquil grounds that surround the monumental Plaza de Espana and explore the Moorish treasures of the Alcazar, an exquisite citadel palace in the very heart of the city.

Sun & Sand in the Costa del Sol
Averaging 300 days' sunshine a year, it's little wonder that the Costa del Sol is widely acknowledged as the playground of Europe. The coastline is famed for its miles of wide, sandy beaches lapped by the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean. Most offer a wide range of watersports if you're feeling energetic and sunbeds and parasols if you prefer to while away your days simply lazing in the sun. Torremolinos has a 7km stretch of unbroken sandy shoreline while Nerja is known for its pretty coves tucked under cliffs - perfect if you're looking for a little more seclusion.
