Final comments
For me it was crucial to make trips out of the city as cadiz is quite a small town that doesnt offer a great variety of activities (especially in winter, if its too cold for the beach). In general i really loved my stay there, and so will you. Wheather, people, beach, university.... everything is making you feel very comfortable!
