Algarve Vacation Guide
For many tourists, the Algarve is synonymous with vacations in Portugal, encompassing the country's fabulous weather, scenic beaches, and lively spirit, to result in a holiday destination par excellence.
Want to spend your vacation at nightclubs playing the latest tunes until the wee hours of the morning? Not a problem — the Algarve has a great deal of those. But you can just as easily find all inclusive resorts catering to spa addicts from around the world, and luxurious hotels with private beaches where you can lounge all day under your sun umbrella and forget about the real world.
You may fly in to Faro, but depending on the kind of Algarve vacations you're looking for, there are plenty of beach towns all along the coast for you to choose from. Those looking for the quiet life will find it in Monchique or Tavira, surfers can revel in the waves at Sagres, and for the best of the region's nightlife entertainment, make your way straight to Lagos.
The Algarve has great weather most of the year, which is both a good and a bad thing. On the upside, you almost never have to worry about it getting too hot, too cold, or having your vacation rained out entirely. Unfortunately, that also means that there is barely any low season to speak of, with its accompanying discount deals and special offers. The spring, summer, and fall are all popular times to visit the area and to get cheap all inclusive vacations to Algarve during these months, you will need to book at least a couple of months in advance, if not more.
The tourist traffic dips slightly in the winter, barring the weeks around Christmas and New Year's, owing to the occasional showers during the area's rainy season. To get cheap deals on vacation packages, plan a trip for November or early-March when there are marginally fewer tourists around, but still plenty of sunshine and pleasant weather for you to enjoy the Algarve's beaches and outdoor activities.
