The most refreshing plans to fight the heat

By | 28 July, 2016 | 0 comments

Take a break from Madrid and hop onto a train at Atocha station that takes you to Cercedilla. In just over one hour, you will be able to breathe in the fresh mountain air and enjoy the recreational area of Las Berceas, a shot of oxygen a stone’s throw from Madrid.

Here you can find artificial pools located in an authentic natural landscape, the Guadarrama mountains, the ideal place to cool down and forget about the city heat for a day. The area has many sinuous pools, picnic areas and different adventure games such as zip wire and climbing and the best time to come is during the week, since it gets quite busy on weekends. This way, you can also visit the town of Cercedilla and discover some of its most authentic restaurants, such as La Alacena, whose winter decor will make you feel refreshed.

En remojo, mejor

Better in the water

In Villanueva de la Cañada, you can find another way to enjoy a day in the water at its water park, Aquopolis. Buy your ticket online and benefit a discount on the normal price (25.95 euros). Here you can find rides that are divided depending on their level of excitement, such as the Kamikaze slides or the Grand Rapid river descent. You can take the 581 bus from the Príncipe Pío interchange (stand 5, floor 1, blue level), which leaves from Paseo de la Florida every hour.

However, if you don’t fancy going far away from the city centre, in Madrid you can find a sports and leisure complex with a rooftop swimming pool, which isn’t a bad option at all. We are talking about Gymage, a centre which combines fitness and wellness. Having opened a year ago to non-members, entry fee for 4 hours during the week costs 9 euros and 12 euros for the whole day. On weekends, there is a single entry price at 17 euros, which will also get you a free drink. Located on Plaza de la Luna, next to Callao, it’s a great option to enjoy the summer without having to suffer it.
