Mojo Lifestyle

Málaga is one of the most popular places for holiday rentals!

Málaga, the capital of Costa del Sol, was the most searched-for city in the world on Airbnb at the beginning of 2023 and the third most requested city for tourists who looked for a holiday home in 2022.

The city, and the entire region of Málaga, has become more and more successful in recent years and positioned itself as a renowned cultural and technological centre, not to mention an ideal destination for people with the possibility of working remotely.

An increasing number of travellers choose Costa del Sol thanks to this, but also due to the 320 days of sunshine, the reasonable prices, the cultural activities, the historical attractions, the beautiful nature, the beaches, the diverse nearby cities and the irresistible lifestyle.
