Is Ibiza really this expensive?
I plan to go to europe next spring or next year. One of the place I would really want to go would be Barcelona and Ibiza before leavin for Italy. I heard this place was really expensive? And...
Some great clubs to go there and in Barcelona !
... im new on here. Not the last post im wrintin'!
In terms of clubbing in summer = expensive, the "superclubs" often charge around 30-50 euros entry, and perhaps 10 for a drink. Accomodation isn't too bad if you book ahead. Food and alcohol in supermarkets was pretty reasonable considering the place.
For spring it's probably a lot cheaper, but I'd also say it's much quieter and it wouldn't really be the same experience that Ibiza is renowned for. In my opinion unless it's July/August (and maybe the shoulders), you're probably better off sticking to mainland or coastal Spain as it's a lot easier to access and there's probably a similar vibe, for clubbing anyway. Or try other popular lively European cities eg. Berlin, Paris, London etc. all of which I'd guess would have better nightlife in the springtime.
That being said, if you decide to go in the summer - I just went last summer and if you're interested in the scene it's worth every penny! There was a great atmosphere there!
And one last thing - it's not really the backpacker type scene (probably due to its price and poser-like attractions), so it'd be best to go with friends or others who are interested in the same thing. Keep that in mind!

Totaly agree. Ibiza is real expensive during clubbing season and in fact due to recent changes in the law you may find it's not the experienc eit used to be. However I stayed there a month ago and had a totaly different experience...amazing beaches, brilliant rstaurants..probably my favourite place to visit.

thank you really much for your replies!
I plan to go there in May/June. Before Ibiza: Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Paris, Barcelona. After Ibiza: Rome, Venise, Prague and Berlin. As you can read, there will be enough parties to keep me alive! Ibiza is just a part of my whole trip but this place is like a dream to me.
I wanted to know if it worth the price even in spring.
As you can imagine the itinary, you guys have any suggestions of smaller cities in between to stop and visit that worth the ''detour''?
Will be my first time in europe.
