City girl's guide to the Azores - Kateryna Review

Getting around

City girl's guide to the Azores by KaterynaWhile there is public transportation, it is scheduled to accommodate the locals and their regular work days. As such, it does not reach all points of interest, runs infrequently and not very late. While there are a number of tour operators offering their daily sight seeing tours they average at about $75+ EUR per person for a 4 hour/half day tour and well over $100 EUR for an 8 hour/full day tour. Having a limited budget we wanted to maximize our experiences and have the freedom to see and do things at our own pace, hence, (as per multiple TripAdvisor suggestions) we rented a car.

"What a Trip" - Nancy D. Brown Review

Baia da Barca hotel review. Village of Madalena, Pico Island, Azores, PortugalIf you enjoy the privacy that an apartment has to offer, yet you still like a hot breakfast waiting for you in the morning, Baía da Barca combines the best of both worlds on Pico Island. This four star self-catering apartment hotel is located in the village of Madalena, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in an upscale area of Pico Island, in the Azores.

Built in 2009, this environmentally-friendly hotel offers 12 apartments, many with panoramic views of Pico Mountain or looking out to the sea. While the energy efficient hotel does offer handicapped accessible rooms, mine was not one of them. I stayed in #2, one of four upstairs units, with 15 steps leading up to the top apartment. Once inside, a cheery living room with fireplace greeted me, with a small kitchen on the other side of the room. I didn’t utilize the kitchen, so I’m not able to comment on its functionality, but a plus for those who want to keep dining dollars to a minimum.
