Hi there, I mostly lurk and absorb as much information as I can.

I will be going to San Juan De Los Terreros in October and I have a couple of questions. I have searched the threads and found some information but I can't really grasp it, mostly because I don't know the area so don't get the gist of the information.

I will not be renting a vehicle. The property managers will pick me up from the airport for 80 euro, if I remember correctly. And will drop me off on my return trip for the same.  Is there public transport from the airport? I have been advised to fly into the new airport at Murcia. If there is public transit, does it go near the Calas del Pinar development? And, will I be able to manage with my next to nothing Spanish (Yes I am doing online lessons).

When it comes to general grocery shopping, I understand there are 3 grocery stores in the immediate area. I also read there are 8 buses a day to the nearest town of Aguillas. Will it be easy enough for me to go to somewhere like Lidl by bus with very limited Spanish. or, should I just expect to spend my tie locally - which is fine. Or, are the taxis cheap enough I can do my big grocery shops in Aguillas by taking a taxi there and back?

THanks!

Hi, I have lived in Terreros for twenty years and without a car you will struggle unfortunately. 

We don’t have a bus service to Aguilas I’m afraid or to anywhere else for that matter. 

There is a bus that runs twice a day from Almería city to Cartagena but with very limited stops and that wouldn’t help you. 

We do have a local taxi and his name is Pablo. He is the only taxi in Terreros and charges around 10€ Each way I think to Aguilas. It’s not within walking distance but the local shops are. 

If I can help any further just let me know. 

Maggi

Thanks Maggi,

I would love to get in touch once I'm there, if you don't mind.

I'm feeling a bit miffed as I was informed there was a bus run 8 times a day. 10E each way isn't bad though for a taxi  if I can shop just every couple of weeks.

Thank you.

That’s fine love, no problem. 

Message me a couple of weeks before you come and I’ll send you my email.

Will do.I won't be bothering you, but it would be great to have a contact in case I need to know how to find the taxi driver,for example. I have an online Spanish course but it's slow going!

Hi ruth.

We bought in san juan last year and hire a car. However there is a bus service to aguilas and surrounding areas. There are 3 buses per day either way and info can be found on www.busbam.com. There are also taxi drivers in aguilas who can bring you back to san juan. Stance is in the centre of aguilas and drivers will give you a card if you need to phone in future. San juan is expanding due mainly to the mar de pulpi complex so hopefully more frequent buses and taxis will become available. Regards john

Thank you, John.

Much appreciated. I won't be able to rent a car as I'm hoping to be there a few months - Brexit dependent whether it's 3 or 6. Having a bus available to branch out wider than the actual village will be great.

regards,

ruth

Hi Ruth

We recently moved to SJLT and love it. There isa Soar Supermarket and also Pepe’s that recently opened and has a fresh meat counter. There are also two chinese shops that sell everything and open all day, every day. There are a few hairdressing salons and a beauty salon and a small market on a Sunday but told in the summer that it is buzzing. 

I haven’t explored the bus yet but there is a timetable at the bus stop; i get they are not frequent but think you could work to get one into Aguilas and come back later that day. Hopefully as it expands, if there is a demand then this could improve. 

There is a lot of building going on which can only improve the area although it is a shame that Mar de Pulpi has been aloud to expand. 

Intercambio meet on a Friday evening at the back of La Venta. There is a quiz inn a Thursday night at Meson Pepe and various classes available at The Community Centre behind The Spar shop. 

Good luck

Thank you Pamela, this is good news to hear. I will definitely attend some of the meetups and it's good to know about the grocery stores.

THanks again.
