Actually its not that bad.. excellent hospital nearby.. coastal highway makes it just 30mins from Almeria and the trains to Madrid, another 10 minutes to the airport
.. ferries to Mellilia.. its cheap because it got bad press in the past but..
Gone are the days of the 3hr bus ride, 2hr wait then 3hrs on to Almeria.
Its a love or hate kinda place.. I like it.
