European Union: Spain requested accession to the EU on 26 July 1977.
On 1 January 1986, Spain and Portugal acceded to the European Economic Community, which thus became the ‘Europe of the Twelve’.
Language: The official language in Spain is spanish.
Spanish is the official language (either by law or de facto) in 20 sovereign states and one dependent territory, totaling around 442 million people. This includes Equatorial Guinea, where it is official but not a native language.
Currency: Spain is one of the 19 states member that has EURO currency.
Card Payments and Cash Withdrawals:
You can pay with international credit cards everywhere, starting from 1€. Some restaurants might impose a minimum payment of 10€.
ATM: they are easy to find everywhere in the country, you just look around you and you will find a Bank with an ATM.
Connexion: The Internet is at a very good speed, with 5G. Wi-Fi connection everywhere you go, free or on demand in some restaurants or hotels.
If you are from the EU, roaming is free of charge. You can call and connect to your mobile data as if you were in your country of origin without extra costs.
Roads: I’ve never seen better roads than the ones in the Canaries. It’s simply a pleasure driving on their highways.
Plugs: Plugs are Type C and F. The standard voltage is 230V, and the standard frequency is 50Hz.
Best Time to visit
The best times to visit the Canary Islands are spring (March-May) and Fall (September-November). I personally, go every year in Spring, April, or May. Not very crowded, nice weather, especially in the South of each island and you can already swim in the ocean if you are like me and like cold water.
If you are in the North of the island, chances are it will be cloudy, rainy, and very windy in the spring, but ride for like 30 minutes towards the South of the island and you will be amazed: sunny and people and at the beach. Happened each day on each island.
