    Trip to Spain Barcelona

    I'll be visiting Barcelona for 2 weeks. My budget is 2 000 dollars. Would these be enough or would i be required more? I'm basically focusing on the parks and beeches in Barcelona. What would be the best park or beech to visit?

    I have never traveled to Spain but know a few people who have or otherwise worked there. That amount of spending money seems more than enough as far as I'm concerned, and Spain (like many other countries) pretty much caters to all income levels. I could easily enjoy myself for less than 2000$ for two weeks in Barcelona. Of course it depends on where you're planning to sleep, eat, drink, etc.
    A word of warning if you're planning to travel to Europe; as a tourist you should take some basic safety precautions, especially if you're traveling alone. You'll likely find some Eastern European beggars and other people hanging around parks, metro stations and other public places (who basically prey on lone and unwary tourists). These people can be found in and around crowded public places so I wholeheartedly recommend you keep your wallet safely hidden and avoid making contact with them. Do not offer them money and ignore them if they approach you. There was a recent episode of Scam City on Natgeo that covered Barcelona, which is well worth watching if you're planning on going there (google search Scam City Barcelona).

    I'm not sure if 2000 dollars would be enough. It depends on your accommodations and which part of town you're staying in. On the other hand, there are some great beaches in Barcelona and the Mediterranean is beautiful at this time of the year.
    You should try Sant SebastiÓ beach as this is the closest to Barcelona City. It is located next to the oldest neighborhood in Barcelona, the Ciutat Vella.
    Playa de Bogatell is great as well, good for jogging and taking long walks. There are restaurants and sidewalk cafes nearby, great to relax and hang out with family and friends.
    The best known is the Barceloneta. I heard it was once voted the third best beach in the world! It is definitely worth a visit! Again, plenty of bars, pubs, hotels and bistros there.

    Have fun!

    Plan And Cost Of A Trip To Barcelona Spain

    You can rent an apartment or a room-share to cut on cost. If you want to be by the beach, just try to look for apartments or room shares in the Barceloneta area. Barcelona is such a fun city, and the food is incredible. You don't have to spend a lot of money to eat well. Parc Guell is very nice, you can hang out there for the whole day, pack up a picnic lunch and just find your own little nook. Parc Ciutadella is also great, closer to the city, and you can hang out all day. This is only two of the many, many, many things to do there, of course, and even if you just walk on the street there is a story to be learned. You can do a Gaudi tour, or look for all the Gaudi buildings' addresses and just find it yourself. As with every large city that tourists frequent, beggars are very visible, but do the same as you would in every large city that you visit - be cautious. There's nothing to it.

    I think it depends on a number of things also. I could budget fine with 2000 dollars going to Barcelona, but I'm not a big spender. I think the best beaches are also around the City centre.

    I think that $2000 should be more then enough as long as your not a big spender. I have always wanted to go there to vacation but haven't gotten there yet. I hear it is really beautiful there and a lot of things to see and do. Hope you have a nice time and be safe.

    Blueeyedprincess, If you want visit many beaches and parks then I think it’s not likely sufficient balance. If you want visit only one place then it may be possible. Well Ciutadella Park Barcelona is very good on your budget. It was in 1877 opened for public. The Ciutadella Park Barcelona biggest, oldest and most famous park. It’s very wonderful park.

    I dont think so it is enough. As you have to stay somewhere, you have to eat, and do shopping too and much more things, so this is not enough money. I always make budget and then on a safe side keep extra money too.

    Don't take your children with you or travel to parts of the country where advisories have been issued. If it is truly a vacation, then why put yourself into a position to be in danger.

    Re: Trip to Spain Barcelona

    Barcelona is a big city, but it's the perfect size to discover on foot. Spend a day away from the metro and the tourist bus, and take your time strolling around and stopping to recharge with some of the city's great gastronomic options. If you're in the mood for visiting some of the most impressive buildings and parks, you'll want to see all the Parc de la Ciutadella has to offer as well as the Parc de Joan Mirˇ, and the Montju´c castle, but there's also a Barcelona you won't find in guidebooks. Get off the beaten path and head up to Horta, get to know the charm of the Sant Andreu district, see a lesser-known side of the Eixample and take in breathtaking panoramic views.

    One attraction which is popular and in my opinion a must visit is the Magic Fountain of Montju´c. This is a light, music and water extravaganza that just can't be missed.
