San Antonio A Time for Change
Yesterdays post; San Antonio A Time for Change went down very well and has sparked some great conversations over the last 24 hrs.
Both Martin Makepeace and Sofia Costa Blom commented and forwarded the article onto friends and colleagues, and as it spread around the internet, it became very clear that there are many people out there who love the real San Antonio.

With the upcoming municipal elections at the end of May across Ibiza, British ex pat Martin Makepeace has been asked to stand in San Antonio for the Partido Popular (Peoples Party).
With this weeks surprise announcement from Super Club Space having to move its opening party back a week due to the Municipal Elections, we take a look at the wider picture and possible long term future for that part of Ibiza.

Without doubt, these plans are controversial.

Rental Apartments in Ibiza
In Ibiza it was always the way that come the end of September and early October an abundance of accommodation, from large villas down to small apartments, would come up to rent for the year ahead. The rent would be fair and agreed with the landlord in advance for the whole year.
Although not a done deal this upcoming summer could see British police officers taking to the streets of San Antonio in a bid to combat antisocial behaviour and drugs.
