A gateway to the charms of Madrid for hundreds of thousands of air passengers a year, Barajas is perhaps best known for being home to the Spanish capital’s main air hub — Adolfo Suárez Madrid–Barajas Airport. But there is more to this district than just its travel connections. The Aquopolis San Fernado water park guarantees plenty of watery fun for all ages, and local parkland will likely make for a pleasant spot to take a short walk when not out enjoying the area’s array of popular shops and restaurants. Whatever your reason for travelling, the area’s location close to such a key airport means there are plenty of Airbnb vacation rentals to choose from when booking your Barajas, Madrid stay. These are some of the best.
