Preparing your trip to Cadiz: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

1. Despite the fact that Cadiz is a peaceful and safe city, travelers should not forget about basic safety measures. This means that it is better not to leave personal belongings unattended. Keep valuable items in a safe at your hotel. Of course, it is better not to visit the outskirts of the city alone in the evening.
2. Cadiz is perfectly suitable for cycling, so consider renting a bicycle to navigate from one landmark to another. Public transport also works well, the same applies to taxi. The only advice here is to ask the price of a taxi ride in advance and make sure the taxi driver turns the meter on and doesn’t say “mañana” instead (it means tomorrow or, to be exact, someday). It is possible to catch a taxi right on the street, online, or having called a company that offers these services.
3. Tourists need to be super careful when driving in Cadiz because local people do not always follow all traffic regulations.
4. To make a ride to another city, it is better to use the bus or train.
5. Summer is usually very hot in Cadiz. Rains are very rare here during warm months. It often rains in winter though. The average summer temperature is 24-26 °C, but the climate may seem to be not very pleasant because of dryness. Don’t forget to take such items as sunscreen, sunglasses, and a protective hat. In winter, the average temperature is roughly 0-6 °C, so it is better to stock up on items for mild European winter if you plan to visit Cadiz during these months. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. Many establishments such as cafes, shops, and restaurants close for siesta from 14:00 to 16:00. It may be hard to buy something or eat during these hours in Cadiz, and tourists should take this into consideration. As a rule, governmental offices start working at 9:00 and close at 17:00. Saturday and Sunday are days off. However, it is still better to check the schedule of the office that you plan to visit because working hours can also be changed depending on the season.
7. Almost everyone speaks international English, so travelers shouldn’t encounter any problems.
8. Vacationers can move around the city wearing beach outfits, but girls are still not recommended to do this when they are alone. Spanish men are very passionate and so they will surely try to conquer the beautiful lady. So females who do not want this kind of attention are better to wear something less revealing. Beach clothes are also not suitable for sightseeing and visiting churches. In general, it is better to dress appropriately for any occasion. Beach outfits are great for the beach, and smart casual style is the best for a stroll in the city.
9. Tips are usually included in the total (10-15% of the total depending on the establishment). However, if the service fee is not included, tourists need to leave the extra.
10. To see local life, go to one of the local markets and try to bargain with sellers.
11. Such goods as jamon, sherry, leather items and ceramics are the most popular gifts that tourists bring from Cadiz.
