The Spanish Health Department has announced that from 23 November, all international arrivals (tourists, residents, swallows, whatever) from countries deemed at high risk according to the EU’s traffic light system will have to present a negative PCR test taken no more than 72 hours previously.
Sanidad says that the measure will add to the controls in place currently at airports such as temperature and visual checks. The new measure will mean that travel agencies, tour operators, air and sea transport companies and any other agent selling tickets must now provide information to anyone booking with them. The legislation will be published in the BOE and is in line with EU Recommendation 2020/1475, which aims to close the gap between the health monitoring models implemented by EU countries.
As far as the Canary Islands are concerned, this national Spanish measure operates over and above the regional one requiring tests on arrival at an accommodation or, for those who didn’t bring a certificate of test results with them, of having a test here after they arrive. As can be seen from the traffic lightmap the United Kingdom is currently deemed as a high-risk country of origin, and if this is the case from 23 November, anyone who is able to leave the UK will be required to bring one to enter the country: the map is updated weekly so will need to be checked before travel. Whether or not the UK is red on the EU map, those booking into regulated tourist accommodation here from 14 November will still have to present a test certificate to be allowed access to their accommodation and download the track and trace app.

Please go across to the site and read the full information, it also appears that children are not exempt. Having done some research here, PCR testing in my area is between £145 and £190, that's a lot for a family of four.
