* Marbella Family Fun gets a facelift!

If you haven´t noticed yet, Marbella Family Fun just got a new facelift this week. We have grown so much in the past two years that our site is brimming over the top with content and pages, so we are gathering it all together in a new format to make things easier to find.

All the content is still there, but the navigation and organization of the site is being re-arranged. You will now find the main navigation bar at the bottom of each page. We still have a top navigation bar, but with limited categories to keep things simple. Coming soon...a drop down menu for the top navigation bar!

For our regular visitors this change will be somewhat similar to arriving at the supermarket only to find the dairy section isn’t where it used to be. It may take getting used to, but with time you’ll find that things are much easier to get to. Don’t forget to use our SEARCH BOX on the top right hand corner in case you are really lost.

We may have some growing pains here, so please bear with us and let us know if something isn’t working for you. We welcome both positive and constructive criticism, so fire away!

Thank you for your patience and support and please let us know what you think of the new look. Click here to read more...

* Dolphin Safari in Gibraltar

You wouldn´t believe it with all this rain we are now having, but last weekend we went to see the dolphins in Gibraltar with the Dolphin Safari. We had a fantastic trip and saw (literally) HUNDREDS of dolphins at the same time. Read our reviews to get more details. This is something you don´t want to miss when visiting the coast!

* Saturdays in Old Town Marbella

Let’s cross our fingers and pray the rain doesn’t fall during the Marbella Town Hall’s “Siente Marbella” fair. This chance to bring together art, music and gastronomy to Old Town Marbella includes artists, concerts and a total of "gastrobars" scattered throughout the historical center. It’s a fun day out for the whole family! Click here to read more...

* Share your photos on our Facebook wall

Often times I will upload a photo of a place I am at on our Facebook wall and we always get nice comments. It seems as though you guys enjoy these little tips and photos and find them useful.

I would love you to post your own photos on our wall if you find yourself in a place you enjoy or have an experience to share. I have the Facebook app downloaded on my phone and it’s very simple to use. Just take a photo, make a comment and click upload. Click here to read more…

* How was your Halloween?

How were your Halloween celebrations? We went to Benahavis and all I can say is "Wow!". I have never seen so many trick or treaters in Spain. The town hall organized a very scary haunted house and bouncy! Many parents were having a good time in the local pubs/restaurants while their children ran around the village on their own.

Tell us what you did. We want to know and it helps our readers prepare for next year. :) Click here to read more…

Don´t forget the power of the BUZZ! Please tell your friends and family about our newsletter or to follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

Thank you... and see you next Friday.
