This route follows the coastline of the peninsula, running through a mixture of landscapes and cities sprinkled with history and legend by the waters of the Atlantic.
Parador de Cádiz. 1st day. Sunday.
Cádiz was once known as Yazira Qadis: Isle of the Peninsula of Cádiz. To see the city in all its splendor, the best thing to do is climb Tavia Tower. From there open up the Tierra Gates, entryway to the walled city. Lying below is the cupola of Cádiz Cathedral. Caleta Beach marks the city's horizon, open and infinite, bounded by two castles, Santa Catalina on one end, and on the other San Sebastian, built atop a former Muslim tower which was in turn raised over a temple dedicated to Kronos. The Cádiz Museum is a must-see. It is well worth the time to take a stroll along Ancha Street or simply get a feel for life in the city.
Parador de Mazagón. 2nd day. Monday.
This route is a true dream come true for nature lovers. Mazagón's beach stretches from the Tinto River Estuary to Torre del Loro, a 10-kilometer strip of golden sands running alongside an ancient cliff face. This area is accessible from the Parador. The wealth of forests and picturesque fauna, shared with the nearby Doñana National Park, the richness and variety of the fishing, the incomparable infrastructure of its marina, the quality of its beaches, which are invariably waving a Blue Flag, make today's Mazagón an ideal destination for rest and relaxation.
Parador de Ayamonte. 3rd day. Tuesday.
Ayamonte is the last stop on this route along the Costa de Luz, a place to rest and relax. You can enjoy the Guadiana River Estuary, and lovely beaches such as Isla Canela and Punta del Moral, where the dunes created by sea currents and the changing of the tide characterize the landscape. A special highlight is the Isla Cristina Nature Reserve. This natural setting is located between the towns of Ayamonte and Isla Cristina. This wetland area is located near the estuary of the Carreras and Guadiana rivers. Other bonusus are the pleasant climate which the area enjoys throughout the year, and its proximity to Portugal.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
