Oh Spain, what’s not to love about this beautiful country, with its friendly people and delicious food and wine? We have fallen hard for Spain, and we totally recommend you to visit a campsite in Spain during your RVing trip through Europe.
Watch out for the crowded campsites in Spain!
However, there is small warning. Spain can be very touristic during the summer. Lots of people drive all the way south to the Spanish Costas to spend their summer break on crowded campsites. If you:
- want to stay several weeks on one campsite in Spain;
- like the blistering hot sun on your skin;
- like to have everything nearby (restaurants, swimming pools, supermarket), so you practically don’t have to leave the campsite;
- prefer lots of activities for children (kids club and teenage activities);
- and find crowded places lots of fun…
then a beach campsite in Spain, at the Costa Brava or Costa Dorada, will be perfect for you and your family.
Lots of quiet campsites in Spain as well
If you want a more quiet place to spend your family RVing adventure, with more sightseeing and less crowded campsites, then there are lots of possibilities in beautiful Spain too (thank god)!
But during the summer, temperatures rise to 40 degrees in Spain. The inland will be abounded in July and August (all the locals spend their holidays at the south coast). And even at the beach, you will notice that the local people tend to stay inside during 11 am and 4 pm because of the heat.
Although lots of tourists ignore this siesta, it is rather wise to stay indoors or in the shade during this time of the day, especially with children.

Spain is beautiful in low season
In conclusion: I totally recommend Spain during low season. It is lovely at the coast of Andalucía (e.g. Costa de Almería, Costa Tropical, and Costa del Sol). We have spent some time near Almería in January, and we had a comfortable 15 to 20 degrees in the afternoon. Although it was chilly in the night, there was almost no rain and during the day we could enjoy the sun.
Some days we had with lots of wind. We heard from other RVers that this was unusual. So maybe it was just bad luck.
