Spanish Classical guitar will have nylon strings and will be easier on your fingers. The fingerboard and neck of a nylon string guitar are thicker because more notes are fingered on a Spanish Classical guitar.
An Acoustic guitar will have steel strings and be a bit painful when you first learn. After six days of continuing practice the pain is gone. The neck and fingerboard are both thinner and easier to play chords and change positions
