Roquetas de Mar is a town of around 100,000 inhabitants. It is located on the coast of the province of Almeria in south-east Spain, 22 kms away from the city of Almeria (around 200,000 inhabitans). It has a hot semi-arid climate. Winters are mild and summers very hot. In general, it is dry all year round.

Getting to school

- Public transport schedules (Roquetas de Mar-Almería):

- Possibility of car-pooling with other teachers: ask in September.



- Where to live in town?



- Possibility of staying with a family?





- Possibility of sharing a flat with teachers?

- Some teacher’s assistants decide to live in Roquetas de Mar, usually near the beach, others prefer the areas of Aguadulce or Almería, which offer a better nightlife. However, living in Aguadulce or Almería can be more inconvenient as you will be dependant on the public transport  (which is far from great) or car-pooling with other teachers.


- Links to rental websites:





Many teachers’ assistants find very useful to find a flat by using websites such as the Facebook groups for assistants. Roquetas de Mar has various schools which receive teachers’ assistants. This means that different assistants might want to share a flat with other assistants of the area.


- Contact of teachers interested in sharing a flat: ask in September.
