Avoid the inflated prices, overcrowded beaches and polluted waters of Costa del Sol. The alternative is close by. Unlike the other "costas", Costa Tropical in Southern Spain has remained unspoiled with clean beaches and sea, and no high-rise hotels. This is still a traditional agricultural working area. Typical crops are cherimoyas (custard apple), mangoes, avocados, bananas, citrus fruits, tomatoes, cucumbers and excellent potatoes. Due to it's unique micro-dry climate and over 320 days of sun per year, it offers an average year round temperature of 20 degrees.
According to the World Health Organisation this area can truly claim:
"The healthiest climate in Europe and second in the world" "Almost as perfect an environment as is possible to obtain"
