Plans to make in Madrid and surroundings without fear of contagion

Experts say that contacts outdoors are 20 times less likely to catch the virus than indoors. Even though the new normality has already begun, many people are still very cautious and prefer to avoid meetings in homes or indoors.

In any case, in relation to this, now is a very good time to visit the museums. They are still large spaces so the safety distance is perfectly respected and, furthermore, there are not many people.

However, for those people who do not want to hear about even large enclosed spaces, we leave a brainstorming of plans to be made:

  1. A walk through the Retiro. The parks are always cooler, so it can be nice to take a walk, see people in the boats and sit in some shade to read or eat an ice cream.
  2. Hike and picnic in the Sierra de Guadarrama. If you don’t mind getting up early, a great plan is to go to the Sierra de Guadarrama and do some of the routes they indicate and end up having a picnic in front of the reservoir. Don’t forget to bring sunscreen and plenty of water.
  3. A boat trip around the Burguillo reservoir. If you like sailing, you can do it in the Burguillo reservoir, in the province of Ávila, less than 2 hours from the city of Madrid. The San Juan reservoir, in Madrid, could be another option, but it has had its accesses closed due to the agglomerations. It is advisable to find out if you want to go there.
  4. A dinner in some of the most beautiful and spacious terraces in Madrid, such as Raimunda, in the Palacio de Cibeles, MO de movimiento in Espronceda Street or the mythical ones in the Plaza de la Independencia.
