A March 2000 trip
to Calahonda by Dundee Scotty
Quote: Calahonda is a lovely town on Mijas Costa, about 15 minutes from Fuengirola to the north and Marbella to the south. This was our first Spanish holiday and our first time to a bonus week at RCI's Club Calahonda.
There were two swimming pools on the complex; unfortunately, because it was March, neither were heated.

Attraction | "The Rock of Gibraltar"
The short journey across the runway, which runs between the border and the town of Gibraltar, is quite spectacular and exciting, especially if you have to stop to let a plane land or if you have to hurry to get to the other side when the warning sounds. We took the cable car up to the top of the rock and the views are fabulous – you can see Spain, Africa, the Straits, all the ships; it’s quite surreal. We then walked down to the Apes Den and there I fell in love with all the apes -- they tell you not to feed them, but everyone does. Just be careful of your sunglasses and sun hats -- they make off with them in a flash, never to be seen again. I could have stayed there all day just watching the antics of the apes and their babies. Then it was down into town to do a bit of shopping -- everything is so cheap.
Then we went back to the bus, which was waiting at the harbour, for the journey home. We booked the tour through Club Calahonda and were picked up at the resort and returned to the resort at the end of the trip.
