|Type of experience (special occasion, day trip, holiday location, eatery)
|Holiday visiting Spanish friends.
|On a scale of 1-10, what overall rating would you give?
|9 out of 10
|When you got there, what were your first impressions?
|Beautiful town, with loads of historical features. Friendly people, for a small town there are lots of places to visit. The festivals are amazing and the food is muy rico!
|Was it what you expected or did it exceed your expectations? Were there any wow moments?
|The whole experience exceeded my expectations. The great thing about a town like Badajoz is that you learn about it’s history and Spanish culture.
|And what about the things that could have been improved?
|I wish I spent more than a week there. There was plenty of other places I would have liked to visit nearby e.g. Caceres. Olivenza, Merida.
|Looking back on your experience, are there any hints and tips you would give for someone wanting to go? (e.g book early, visit a specific place, ask for a booth)
|It’s difficult and expensive to get a direct flight to Badajoz because it has a very small airport. You will have to book a flight to Madrid and travel four hours to Badajoz. But it is well worth the travel. Also, it is not far from Portugal, so if you get a chance you could travel across the border and visit Portugal too.
|And finally, the magic question, would you go back again?
|I would 100% go back again, just for the Churros (delicious)!!!
