One of our readers has asked me to advertise this on the site:

There are some people in Almerimar looking for a 2-3 bedroom house with a garage for long term rent in Almerimar.

If you have a place you are interested in renting out please get in touch and I will pass on your details.

Sorry for not posting much recently. I have been in bed with the lurgy.

I have a question from a reader.....

There used to be an orange waste olive oil container on Calle Alcor close to the electricity substation. Over the road from hole 5 of the Master course. This was taken away some time ago. The question is where is the closest waste olive oil container to Calle Alcor?

Please can you contact me with your answer or post it as a comment on the Facebook page. Ta.

UPDATED: We received this response from a reader via email... "With reference to deliveries of gas bottles, i believe the gas man arrives on a Friday morning and hoots as he drives round. We stopped having gas a few years ago but i still hear the hooting every Friday morning so assume these deliveries still happen. I have no idea of the Company."

Plus we have had similar comments made on the Almerimar Today Facebook page. (Note: you can see this page even if you do not have an account with Facebook).


One of our readers has asked about companies that deliver replacement gas "bottles" in Almerimar.

From time to time I have seen lorries driving around Almerimar with lots of them on the back of the lorry. However I have never noticed which companies deliver replacement bottles to Almerimar. Does anyone have any information about this?

One of the readers of the site has contacted me asking about supermarket delivery services.

I know that if you buy stuff in Mercadona you can make arrangements for the the items to be delivered to your home. Also, I have seen the Mercadona mini-van driving around town. However I have never used the service myself.

Has any reader used the service and got any views on what it is like? Also, any idea of whether they deliver to the lakes area of Almerimar?

Having been prompted by the query I have had a poke around on the internet. You can see the registration form for Mercadona online services here (in English). The page also includes a link to a contact form where you can check whether Mercadona deliver to your area.

One of our readers, Corey M, is asking about bike hire in Almerimar.

I believe that some time ago you used to be able to hire bikes at the Victor Fernández Center (located close to the beach behind the beach hotel).

I was wondering if they still hire bikes and whether anyone knows of anywhere else in Almerimar that hire bikes at the moment.

I arrived in Spain 2 years ago from England. Initially I did not rush to learn Spanish but have now adjusted and tried a number of different techniques and am making good progress being at a healthy intermediate level (just enough to be dangerous!). Below is a list of resources both online and local that will benefit anyone wishing to study Spanish from Almerimar. It is far from exhaustive but hopefully it can help you on your journey. Best of luck!
