Bus Travel Along Coast: Be aware Alsa buses do not provide extra buses if they become full along the route; if at a major station that sells tickets they will at least be able to tell you it’s sold out, saving you a long, hot, boring wait. At stops that do not have a ticket office you just have to wait till the next bus and hope there is room. This morning in Torrox Costa I was waiting for a bus to Nerja. Two in a row, 11 and 11:30, would not allow anyone to board as they were full. I didn’t wait to see if it was going to be 3 in a row. -Naythan
