Guaro is a typically Spanish, pretty, white village. When you arrive, you truly feel like you are in the heart on Andalucía. There are small local shops, and some lovely restaurants and bars but what Guaro is famous for is hosting a festival called the "Luna Mora" (Blackberry Moon Festival) which is Moorish festival celebrating the village's heritage and is held in the second or third week of September. This is when Guaro transforms into one of the most visited white pueblos in Andalucía. Thousands of candles light up the village during the evenings, and a host of big-name musicians come to play. A medieval Moorish market dominates the streets, and local sellers and craftsmen, dressed in ancient Moorish costume try to sell you their wares. Belly dancers sway to Arabic music and everyone is taken away with the beautiful, relaxed atmosphere and enjoy a glass or two of local wine, or a cool beer.
It's not too hard to find the village, located just 3 km from historical Monda and 6 km from Coín. It is just 20 km from the coast and upmarket Marbella, and 50 km from Malaga and the international airport. The town, itself has a few Roman remains and evidence of Moorish settlements with some very attractive historical buildings, making the town worth a visit. The surrounding countryside blooms with almond trees, which help sustain the economy of the village. The village's slogan is "The Natural Almond Paradise".
There are a host of golf clubs close to Guaro driving down towards the coast, and in the Sierra de las Nieves natural park you can partake in Safari Jeep Adventures, quad biking, or follow some of the stunning routes by foot. Including climbing to the summit of La Concha, the mountain that backs Marbella.
Guaro enjoys the sub-tropical Mediterranean climate, which has hot summers and warm winters. Divided from the sea by the mountains means the heat can soar in summer, but it remains comfortable for the most part. Temperatures are an average of 32 ºC in summer.
