If I Had a Boat

One of my most memorable evenings in Madrid was hiring a boat and paddling around the Buen Retiro Park pond at sunset. This is a popular activity during summer so I recommend going after 7pm when there’s generally less people and the searing Spanish sun is setting. To rent a boat for 45 minutes will cost you less than 5 euros and although the pond is small, it’s worth it. One thing I liked about the Spanish is their ability to make friends with anyone, and I can almost guarantee that within the 45 minutes you’ll make plenty, especially if you’re as uncoordinated at rowing as we were.
