Almuñécar’s 5th Tapa Route will be taking place over two weekends; the last one in March and the first one in April.
The Councillor for Tourism made the announcement together with representatives of the Asociación de Hosteleros del Valle Tropical, José Muñoz and Jorge Rodríguez.
Participating eating establishments must provide tapas using local produce with a recommended price of 2.50 euros, which includes the accompanying drink. The usual ‘passport system’ will be used with each bar visited stamping it. Customers will record their tapa evaluations on it.
Councillor Rafael Caballero explained that it was all about promoting the local gastronomy; a chance for locals and tourists to get to know as many bars, chiringuitos, mesons and restaurants as possible.
The Asociación de Hosteleros del Valle Tropical will be in charge of signing up each participant and actively encouraging as many establishments as possible to take part.
Anybody who is interested in completing the tapa route can visit the official web page, where they will find a map showing where the participating bars etc are and photos of their tapas.
Customers should have eaten in at least five establishments, getting their passports stamped in each one in order to take part in a raffle: the passport should be handed in at the Tourist Information Office on the Paseo del Altillo or the one next to the Aquarium.
