Where is Aguilas and how can you get there?

But now, how could you get there? Well it depends if you choose a flight, train, bus or car, my recommendation if you are going to take a flight is to choose a close airport, in this case you have two options, the airport of Murcia or the airport of Alicante. From Murcia in car you’ll probably spend around 1 hour and a half to get there, from Alicante could be more, around two hours, in any case you can take a bus from Alicante-Murcia and then another one to Aguilas. There is also a train that connects Alicante with Aguilas, but you would spend more time, it is cheaper but slower (7.95 €) and the other inconvenience is that there is only six train frecuencies the whole day during carnival and summer, but just three the rest of the year.

Your Official Guide to Traveling Around Alicante

Last semester I studied abroad in Alicante, Spain for four weeks. This was easily the longest I had ever been out of the country and the thought of learning a foreign city on my own was terrifying. Luckily though, I gained enough confidence to go out and explore. By the end of my trip I could walk around the city with my eyes closed and still find a way to my little heaven, Canada Coffee Shop. Adapting is the hardest part, but it’s definitely the most fun part too!
