TC Conference on the Costa Del Sol

Trevor Smith on 21 November 2008
The Travel Counsellors Conference is one of the highlights of the year and this year was no exception with over six hundred Travel Counsellors from the eight countries around the world represented, and over 140 suppliers and tourist boards from around the world represented.

The Costa del Sol was not a destination that I know well and this visit changed that.

We enjoyed a fantastic session with the Costa del Sol Tourist Board who gave us so much to think about and leave conference with.

The Costa del Sol has so much history, tradition, style, elegance, flamenco, food & drink, fiestas, museums, beaches, National Parks and golf & spa resorts.

In fact so much for so many, a destination to suit all and with a fantastic Mediterranean climate so a great destination all year round and we only had three nights to check out this location.

Malaga as a city break destination was bought to life in the presentations that we received and I am sure that I will be visiting sometime in 2009 as a city break! Malaga is also a major port for many Cruise operators with many ships destined for Malaga in 2009.

One of the highlights of our visit to the Costa del Sol was a visit to Mijas, the White Village of Andalucia, a beautiful village set up in the hills with its narrow cobbled streets with the many craft and pottery shops.The village of Mijas can itself be your base for an idyllic holiday in Andalucia.

Whether you are after a beach holiday, a city break, or golf & spa holiday then the Costa del Sol has it all.

I had a wonderful weekend break and will definitely be returning.
