Hola, I’m Paulina

Now, who is this Algarve fan? I’m Paulina and I write at the travel blog

I worked for several years as a travel agent and was in charge of preparing tailor-made travel itineraries to the Algarve, Portugal. That’s how I got to know southern Portugal’s best and most beautiful corners. Even now that I don’t call Algarve my “workplace” anymore, I still visit as often as possible.

With my articles about Algarve on the blog, I helped tens of thousands of readers plan their trip to Faro or Sagres. As a former professional travel planner, I love sharing my Algarve vacation planning expertise with people.​

When planning their Algarve holiday, people often don’t know where to start. The region is not very big but highly diverse. Distances are not large, but the roads can be very winding. Thus it’s essential to plan your getaway wisely. 

If you only have limited time, it’s important to know that you don’t need to see it ALL.

From my years of visiting Algarve, I’ve seen and done pretty much everything, so I’ve already filtered the sights for you. You don’t actually need to see everything. You only need to see the best!

I’ll let you know what you HAVE to do, what you can skip, and the best order to do things. So, leave your planning worries behind and enjoy the mesmerizing beauty of Algarve.

Enjoy the Algarve worry-free!
