My partner and I are Canadians coming to Portugal for the first time in October. We are hoping to extend our 90 day visitors visa and were informed by the Embassy in Ottawa that it is possible once we are on the ground by doing so at the SEF office.
We were considering starting our stay in Tavira on the Algarve and then going to Tomar for the balance of our stay. We were wondering if anyone had any ideas about accommodations in Tavira and whether that was a good location to begin our exploratory stay in Portugal.
We spent the past 8 years in Mexico and lived in Germany for 10 years in the 80`s so we have had some experience with being a foreigner in a new place.
Thanks!

It depends on how you like the weather. Algarve would probably be unbearably hot but Tomar would be great as it might be a little cooler in the summer. I am from Canada as well and I don't think I could bear the heat of the Algarve in the summer. I have also been to Tomar several times and just love it there. I guess the Canadian winters got to me and can't take the heat any more. Madeira is lovely as well. You might like that. The northern part of the island is slightly cooler than the southside.
This is my opinion on the weather.
