    Aires are very few and very far between in central and southern Spain, with or without wi-fi which is a big ask. Cannot think of any near Granada (city) but guess there may be some places in the country around. Hang around and probably somebody more knowledgeable will come along to prove me wrong...... usually happens. :Laughing:

    PS: Should you find one/any would love to hear about it.

    Btw, if wifi is important , do what we all do...... park outside McDonald and piggy back their excellent system, have even heard it rumoured that some folks go inside and buy coffee...... must be tuggers :Rofl1::Laughing::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Also have a look at Lebara for a data card, readily available most towns and at €10 for 500MB is quite handy for urgent stuff if not for lengthy browsing.

    If you want close you'll have to pay campsite fees, with WiFi. A tired old place but right in the middle. ACSI.

    We plan to visit the Alhambra next week and intend to use Camping Reina Isabel (acsi 2132) in the 2013 book.It has WiFi and is 3km south east of the centre.Can not find Camping Motel Sierra Nevada in this year's book but it is closed after 31 Oct according to the Caravan Club book.

    Stayed a few days here last year. Nice compact site, has good restaurant and bus service into Granada passes gate. Walk up hill to La Zubia and try the tapa bars in town.... great value.

    Please be aware you need to book the tickets online for the Alhambra Palace as if there is a large group or bus tours you will have to wait in the queue and may not even get in. Just "google" it for the web site. You might be lucky and turn up on the day and get in without waiting.

    DQ is quite right. Visitor numbers to the Alhambra are strictly limited each year and online booking is by far the best option. This method will ensure that you "jump" the line and will give you a FIXED ENTRY TIME TO THE NASRID PALACE. Don't be late, if you are you will miss your time slot.

    Enjoy your visit, it is a fabulous building, go the extra and rent the audio guide, worth it.

    We stayed at a campsite at Beas De Granada and the bus into the city stopped at the gate. The site was very good and it had an excellent bar/cafe, used by locals. And, as far as I can remember, WiFi. I think it was an ACSI site too.

    One other thing; we enjoyed looking round Granada but found the Alhambra very disappointing. Too expensive, touristy, and very crowded, even out if season, and the most interesting bits were time-limited.

    Thanks for all the suggestions and ideas ref Granada. Currently parked up close to Motril before heading inland in a couple of days. Will see what we can find central and wifi 'compatable', will keep everyone informed if we are lucky!
    Failing that I expect we will have to fork out for ACSI site or 8 hours close to a mcdonalds for a days work!!!
