Holidays in Spain - Adjust your Body Clock

Due to the warm climate of Spain and traditions of its people, there is a different daily routine to observe while you're on holiday here. Be prepared to readjust your body clock, so that you are in tune to the 'Spanish schedule' and get the most of your experience.

Two notable differences that you need to be aware of are meal times and siestas. It can be difficult or frustrating to find that there is little to do during the siesta period of around 1:30 PM until 5:00 PM, thus it is important to plan ahead and make sure you don't need to shop during that time, as most stores close for the siesta period In terms of mealtimes, breakfast and dinner are generally eaten at around 10 AM and 9 PM, respectively, with restaurants opening at around 7 PM, so remember to either eat a late lunch, or have a small snack to tide you over, if you're used to eating dinner earlier.
