The province of Cádiz is filled with music festivals in summer.

A unique environment and artists on the level of Raphael, Pat Metheny, Tom Jones, Luz Casal and many others.

The town of Sancti Petri (Chiclana de la Frontera) once again brings together the best artists of the moment in its famous festival by the sea.

With hundreds of kilometers of things and beaches, water sports are the star in summer in the province of Cádiz. Surfing, paddle surfing, kayaking, kitesurfing… choose the coast of Cádiz, it is full of proposals for children and adults to start or improve their technique. We recommend the activities of our friends at Club Educa Surf next to the Hotel Playa de la Luz in Rota.

The Festival of the Urta in Rota

The urta is a typical fish from the town of Rota, which dedicates its most popular festival to it from August 3 to 6, in a typical Andalusian setting. Let yourself be carried away by the concerts, walk slowly through the booths or taste the elaborations of the contest that is dedicated annually to this fish so typically from Rota. Take the opportunity to take a walk through the historic center of Rota and taste the famous “urta a la roteña” that you will not find anywhere else… well accompanied by a tintilla de Rota, the locally made wine.


Cadiz gastronomy

Since we are talking about good food, you cannot come to the province of Cádiz without trying the local gastronomy. We highlight the wide variety of fish preparations, and of course the world-famous Jerez wines. The AQ35 Patio de los Naranjos restaurant at the Hotel Jerez & Spa has one of the most complete cellars in terms of Jerez wines, especially the so-called VORS, the oldest.

If you prefer to taste these gastronomic wonders on the beach, there is nothing better than letting yourself be rocked by the waves at the El Embarcadero restaurant at the Hotel Duque de Nájera or La Gaviota Restaurante Terraza at the Hotel Playa de la Luz.

For horse lovers

If you like equestrian activities, a must is to witness the show “How Andalusian horses dance” at the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art, based in Jerez. The beauty of the fusion of the rider and his mount will not leave you indifferent. We also recommend a visit to the Yeguada de La Cartuja, in the middle of nature, one of the epicenters of purebred Spanish horse breeding.

But in the province of Cádiz there is much more. A multitude of equestrian activities, especially in the surroundings of Jerez, but also an international event with 200 years of history: the Sanlúcar de Barrameda horse races. This show is held in two cycles: the first on August 10, 11 and 12, and the second on August 25, 26 and 27. In the middle of the sunset with the low tide of Sanlúcar, it is an unforgettable sensation to witness the beauty of horses and riders riding along the beach next to the mouth of the Guadalquivir river and the Doñana Natural Park.

Spring is an ideal date to make a getaway to the province of Cádiz. The weather is good and allows you to make plans outdoors, and the calendar is filled with unique events that you won’t be able to enjoy anywhere else. Whether you prefer the beach, sports events, cultural tourism, nature or a wine lover, there are many plans in Cádiz in spring for you.

Holy Week in Cádiz. Although there are Holy Week processions throughout Spain, those in the province of Cádiz have something special: the flamenco touch that you will not find elsewhere. From April 2 to 9, the Holy Weeks of Cádiz capital and Jerez are declared of National Tourist Interest, they have a long tradition and you will be surprised when, suddenly, a spontaneous person begins to sing a saeta to the Virgin or the Christ to her passed. Even if you are not very religious, the flamenco art expressed at Easter will make your hair stand on end.

MotoGP World Championship in Jerez. A little further on in the calendar, from April 28 to 30, Jerez will once again host the great motorcycle festival, the Moto GP Spanish Grand Prix, at its Ángel Nieto Circuit. The party and the activities around the bikers reach not only Jerez, but a good part of the province of Cádiz, where there are many events related to motorcycles.

Feria de Jerez 2023. And almost without leaving one event we get into another: the Horse Fair returns to Jerez from May 6 to 13. Flamenco dresses, sevillanas, rebujito, horse ride… the Jerez Fair is stately, elegance, flamenco, fun, color and much more. Enter any booth and enjoy the flamenco performances that fill the Real de la Feria for free, don’t forget to ask for a rebujito and a good ham to accompany it. Very close to the Real, you have at your disposal the Hotel Jerez & Spa and the Hotel Villa Jerez.

More fairs. The Jerez Fair marks the start of the rest of the fairs that run through the province of Cádiz in each locality without exception until the month of September, without interruption. In Rota, the Spring Fair brings flamenco, sevillanas and fun from May 4 to 7; A little further on in the calendar, from June 6 to 11, the Sanlúcar de Barrameda Manzanilla Fair, dedicated to its most international wine, is also very attractive.

Pizza Festival. And another very different event, the Pizza Festival, will be held in Rota from March 16 to 19, just before welcoming spring. Did you know that Rota is one of the Spanish cities with the most pizzerias per inhabitant? The reason lies in the presence of the Rota naval base and the North American personnel, who have influenced the gastronomic customs of the town. A weekend to taste a wide variety of pizzas and many other activities.

Relaxation on the beach. If you are more of those who want to take their first dip in the sea and relax on the beach, there are also plenty of plans for you in the province of Cádiz in spring. Kilometers and kilometers of beaches with all the services you need and an exceptional climate to enjoy the sun and the sea in spring. Our hotels Playa de la Luz and Duque de Nájera are located on the seafront in Rota, very close to other epicenters of tourism in the province of Cádiz.

Centenary of Lola Flores. In January 2023, one hundred years have passed since the birth of a universal Jerez: the great Lola Flores. And to celebrate it, the city has prepared a great program of events and routes through the places she frequented as a child. In addition, in spring the Lola Flores Museum will be open to the public, which the Jerez City Council has promoted in collaboration with the Pharaoh’s family, and which will house a large number of objects from her legacy.

Nature tourism. In spring, the province of Cádiz is a spectacle of nature. The natural parks of Los Alcornocales or the Sierra de Cádiz offer in all their splendor the best routes, trails and active tourism activities for children and adults. If you also travel with your bike and practice cycling, the province of Cádiz is a treasure to discover. Our hotels Playa de la Luz in Rota and Hotel Jerez & Spa are Bike Friendly, and have the tools and materials you need, as well as the best routes to discover Cádiz by bike.

Donana in spring. Speaking of spectacles of nature, how can we not talk about Doñana in spring. After the winter rains, the marshes and the national park in general are at their best to enjoy a unique experience full of life. And it is that Doñana inhabits the largest European bird reserve, with more than 300 species, some of which are habitual residents, and others are passing through. You can cross to the park by barge from Sanlúcar, or do it through Huelva, with one of the many active tourism companies that offer excursions.

“El Rocío”. We stayed in Huelva because another unique spring experience in southern Andalusia is El Rocío, the pilgrimage of thousands of people to the village of Almonte, which is much more than a religious event, it is an experience and a feeling that is difficult to forget. . In 2023, the big days of El Rocío are May 28 and 29; In the previous days, the province of Cádiz was filled with pilgrims heading to Sanlúcar, where the brotherhoods embarked to cross the Guadalquivir River and make their way to Almonte through the Doñana National Park for several days. Who has lived it, repeat.

Patios Festival. Spring is synonymous with this festival in many Andalusian towns, where the residents open their houses and dress up to show the flowery decoration and pots that they have been pampering for a whole year, and which in spring become an explosion of colours. In the province of Cádiz, the Fiesta de los Patios in El Puerto de Santa María stands out, straddling Jerez and Rota, where from April 20 to 23 you can delight yourself with the careful floral decoration of a multitude of participating homes.

In summary, spring in the province of Cádiz is synonymous with good weather, joy, fun, and unique experiences that you will carry with you in your memory. We want to share them with you!

Plans in the province of Cadiz to start 2023 by the best way - HACE

It may seem that the months of January and February are among the least attractive on the travel calendar, but we assure you that, in the province of Cádiz, there are many leisure options to experience. Added to this is a mild climate with mild winters that allows you to enjoy outdoor activities most days. Do you want to know what to do in the province of Cádiz at the beginning of 2023? Here are some ideas.

When life is Carnival

February is the month of carnival; many of the Cadiz towns celebrate it to a greater or lesser extent, but we especially recommend two. On the one hand, the carnival of Rota, from February 18 to 26, with a multitude of events including the festival of groups, the coronation of the Carnival Mermaid and the Children’s Mermaid, the proclamation and the parade on Sunday. The entire Villa participates in these acts with their costumes displaying a carefree humor. And the other appointment, is how could it be otherwise, the carnival of Cádiz, declared of International Tourist Interest. The official program runs from February 16 to 26, but since January 21 the preliminaries of the Official Contest of Carnival Groups have been held at the Manuel de Falla Theater in Cádiz. Living the cante, the humor and the acid criticism of the groups live is an experience that you cannot miss. If you’re traveling with kids, take them to see the children’s group contest… they’ll have a blast!

Jerez and flamenco

Throughout the year Jerez is flamenco and flamenco is Jerez, but at the beginning of the year even more so. And it is that from February 24 to March 11 a new edition is celebrated, and there are already 27, of the Festival de Jerez. Shows, masterclasses and flamenco in any corner of the city, when you least expect it.

Lola Flores and Jerez

Without leaving Jerez, we have another interesting date at the start of 2023 with the great Lola Flores. And it is that, in February, on a date yet to be determined, the museum that is being built and that will house the legacy of this universal artist from Jerez will be opened to the public. A must on your next visit to the city.

Biker concentration in Rota

Are you a biker? You have an appointment on the first weekend of February with the XXXVIII Villa de Rota Biker Concentration, with which we collaborate again through the Hotel Playa de la Luz. Come and experience the special atmosphere of motorcycle lovers and a lot of activities related to the motor world.

A toast to 2023 with Cádiz wines

Another option to start the year off right is to do wine tourism in the province of Cádiz. On the one hand, the hundred-year-old wineries of Jerez will reveal all the secrets of the most international Jerez wines: fino, oloroso, palo cortado, cream and Pedro Ximénez. If you stay at one of our hotels, Hotel Jerez & Spa and Hotel Villa Jerez, don’t forget to ask us about all the options to visit the wineries.

On the other hand, go ahead and get to know some lesser-known wines in the world, but equally traditional and rooted in the culture of Cádiz: the tintilla de Rota, a type of wine that was on the verge of disappearing but that in recent years has been resumed with force. So that you can delve into the mysteries of the tintilla from Rota, there is nothing better than taking advantage of the “Rota and its wines” promotions at the Hotel Duque de Nájera or the Hotel Playa de la Luz.


To these plans in the province of Cádiz in January and February you can add the usual attractions of the rest of the year: walks along deserted and kilometer-long beaches, visits to the rich cultural and historical heritage, or taste the magnificent gastronomy of Cádiz in one of our restaurants in Jerez and Broken. Do you still have doubts about what to do in January and February in the province of Cádiz?

And remember that if you opt for early booking, you will get interesting discounts. Check conditions on our website!
