The information below is legalese. Essentially it means this:

  • We’re amateur tourists who built this web site for fun.
  • While you may find lots of good and interesting information about Blanes, Catalonia (Spain), and the Costa Brava here, you will have to check and double check everything yourself.
  • If something bad should happen (e.g. your hotel was overbooked, the ocean was dirty, the apartment’s sea view was from 30 miles inland, or a fly landed in your tapas) you can not blame us.

As for Copyright:

  • Original material published at VisitBlanes.com is copyrighted and may not be re-written, re-posted or re-published elsewhere.
  • If you do it anyway you will get a substantial bill, get introduced to our legal guys, and end up paying us lots of money.
