why you need to visit this town in southern spain

as i mentioned in this post, before morocco we were slowly making our way to tarifa to catch the ferry. the original plan was to just check out tarifa for a few nights before leaving spain – but after chatting with locals and doing some research, this place popped up on our radar. vejer de la frontera [never ever heard of] was absolutely worth the detour. this hilltop village is in the province of cadiz and is straight up cool. perched on top of a small mountain, 20 minutes from great beaches with surf and its coastal sister town [conil de la frontera]... we instantly fell in love. the entire city is painted white and is so unbelievably charming – filled with awesome restaurants & bars, tons of rad little shops, nice people & all around really good vibes. we did not want to leave.  

to get there we tried "bla bla car" for the first time [which is essentially organized hitch hiking] and were so happy with the experience – you basically type in where you're going and it links you up with other people going that same direction. we ended up riding with a cool young spainard who dropped us off right at our airbnb and recommend a great spot to see flamenco guitar. we stayed for three nights and here are a few of our favorite spots. you can also view the << FULL TRAVEL GUIDE HERE >> [below seville!]

VEJER: mercado de san francisco: very cool indoor food market that is pumping on weekend nights - tapas of all different types and they serve all the local bebidas | meson juderia: traditional spanish restaurant with delicious food, craft beers, extremely cozy vibes and epic views [also 100 feet from THE arch]

TARIFA [we quickly stopped here for a few hours before the ferry]: bar el frances: the tastiest tapas and drinks, and a very fun atmosphere spilling into the streets | El LOLA fun spot for tapas and live flamenco at night

spain + tapas + tinto de verano = we <3 and miss you!
