Welcome to Malaga Guru!

At Malaga Guru, we aim to give you the low-down on the must-dos in the city, as well as guide you off the beaten track.

We love the city and we want to share that love with you by showing you the true gems that the city of Malaga has to offer.

Whether you have come here to live, you’re here on holiday, or have chosen this magnificent city for your Erasmus year, we hope you find this site useful.

Here you’ll find everything you need to know, from tourism and culture, to the best food and shopping spots.

If you’re intending on staying here for the long term, we’ll also help you to get to grips with Spanish culture and bureaucracy!

‘Bienvenidos’ and ‘suerte’! And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
