Welcome to our Expert Guides

Being as fortunate as we are to spend lots of time in ‘our’ countries, we have amassed considerable knowledge of the Hispanic world over the years.

We have distilled what we hope are the most insightful (and occasionally entertaining) pearls of wisdom into our online Expert Guides, which are emailed to you once a day for a week. See below for a list of the topics covered.

Alternatively, if you'd prefer something in the post, please request our printed guides to Costa Rica or Spain & Portugal.
