|Newly opened Costa Coffee|
There was a steady stream of customers either buying and sitting down or ordering a take away. I must admit I was rather surprised at the prices - a small cappuccino was 4.10 euros; medium 4.50 and large 5.00 especially as in Benidorm a cafe con leche is around 1.50 euro. But, when my medium sized one came it was at least a double if not triple measure of a standard coffee - I will still be wide alert at midnight I think!

Make sure that you buy your cigarettes and tobacco from these official shops, which are widely found all over Benidorm. Do not be tempted to buy "bargain" ones offered from behind a bar claiming to be off the back of a lorry or bought over from Gibraltar - they are most probably counterfeits containing goodness knows what. If you are going to kill yourself by smoking at least ensure its with good quality tobacco!
