Getting to your destination
This pleasant Spanish seaside town feels a million miles away from the boisterous resorts of the Southern Costas. La Coruna has plenty to offer more cultured tourists, with a laid back hippy-dippy atmosphere and a plethora of fantastic seafood restaurants.
It takes about 15 minutes to drive to La Coruna from the airport. Lots of hotels in La Coruna have guest parking, but there are also plenty of car parks and on-street spaces if your accommodation doesn't. Always check local signs: generally in Spain blue lines on the road mean you're in a pay and display zone, while yellow lines mean you can't park there.
Just on the border between Galicia and Asturias, the port town of Ribadeo makes a great base for exploring Spain's north-eastern regions. Gorgeous architecture, lovely beaches, and fantastic river fishing make this town a top pick for holidays in Galicia.
It takes about an hour and a half to drive to Ribadeo from La Coruna Airport. Parking is widely available in hotels and other accommodation options: camping is very popular in the area surrounding Ribadeo. Free parking is widely available, but do check local signage for restrictions and prices.
Santiago de Compostela
While many pilgrims choose to walk the Way of St James to reach this magnificent city, we won't tell if you decide to fly and drive instead.
If you can't find cheap flights to Santiago de Compostela, La Coruna Airport is a great alternative. It only takes about 50 minutes to drive from the airport to the city. Parking is limited in the city centre, and if you do find a space the chances are you will need to pay for it. This includes hotel car parking: the closer you stay to the old town, the more expensive it is.
