Musings from a Canadian couple living in Spain.

All about the things we love about Alicante and Valencia, Spain!

We know how exciting travel can be and like most people, as soon as the plane lands you want your adventure to begin. To make the most of your trip, we’ve gathered some information we wish we knew about when we first arrived. Alicante and Valencia are the perfect cities because of their proximity to an airport, train station or bus station. 


Let’s get started …

NOTE – due to relaxed rules imposed by the Government of Spain, non-essential travel is now allowed. Click here to visit Citizen’s Advice Bureau Spain for more information.

What happens when you arrive to Valencia?

Mandatory use of face masks

People six years of age and older are no longer required to wear a face mask in outdoor spaces where it is possible to maintain a safe distance of 1.5 meters between people from different social bubbles. However, the use of face masks are mandatory in indoor spaces or while using any means of transport, whether by air, sea, bus or rail transport, as well as in complementary public and private passenger transport in vehicles with up to nine seats, including the driver, if the occupants of the passenger car do not live in the same household.

Night time movements

Bars and restaurants can stay open until 12:30am, with a maximum of 10 people per table (indoors and terraces).

Border closures in the Valencia region

The entry and exit of persons from the territory of the region of Valencia is no longer restricted.
