Best in Spain is a compilation album of recordings by Boney M. released by BMG-Ariola Spain in 1996.

Best In Spain is one of the more unusual Boney M. hits compilations as it contains not only the original disco classics but also two contemporary interpretations of the band's hits. The first is "Rasputin" sung in Spanish by electropop band Fangoria which samples the original Boney M. version and the second a fairly radical take on "Ma Baker" by Spanish punk rockers The Killer Barbies featuring Alaska.
