I don't want to be in any of the real touristy places where there are lots of other Brits. I just want a nice location where little English is spoken so I have to speak Spanish, but where there are things to do so I can go out a meet people and have some fun.

Also, I know it's a pretty vague questions and difficult to quantify, but anyone have any ideas on the costs of living in Spain?
