Popular with German and British couples, Alaro offers a taste of the real Spain.

Accommodation is limited to just a couple of hotels, options just outside Alaro consist of some private rental properties and converted manor houses although are well outside the village.

Typical of a small village, there isn't a great deal in terms of shops and shopping, with a pharmacy, small supermarket, newsagent being about all that is available. The not to far town of Palma has a far wider choice of shops.

Daytime attractions are really limited to relaxing activities: drinking coffee or beer at the cafe/bars on the main square, walking and exploring the surrounding countryside..etc By night there are a handful of bar/cafes. Palma is the place to go for livelier entertainment as well as cultural activities. A daily bus service is available to Palma and some of the surrounding villages and provides the only real means of getting around. Taxi's are limited and car hire is not available within the little village.

There are no organised excursions but making your own trips to Pollensa (with its Roman bridge and historical church), the seaside resort of Puerto de Pollensa and Valldemosa (mountain village with monastery where Chopin lived) will make interesting trips whilst in Alaro.
