If you just can´t get yourself out of the house, or prefer to watch movies at home, we discovered this great service that allows you to download unlimitied full movies for either a 3 month, 1 year or 5 year basis. Full Movies gives unlimited downloads on your computer, TV or mobile 24/7 with no timer or title limits or monthly bills. And the movies are downloaded to you forever. We use Apple TV, but this service offers more, so we will be testing it out ourselves. Click here to learn more.

Team Xtreme is organizing a kids (9-16 yrs) canyoning experience in Benahavis on Monday July 11th. This is an excellent outdoor activity that the whole family can experience only 10 minutes from Marbella. Our family had an amazing time and we highly recommend this adventure trip!
