BEST EVER SUMMER FOR ANDALUCIAN TOURISM!
BEST EVER SUMMER FOR ANDALUCIAN (COSTA DEL SOL) TOURISM!
This August was the best in the history of Andalucia tourism. That is the claim of the Junta De Andalucia Councillor for Tourism and Commerce, Rafael Rodriguez. He revealed data from the National Institute of Statistics which showed that the number of overnight stays registered in the region had increased by 400,000 compared to 2008. In Malaga, more than 1.62 million people stayed in hotels between June and August, which is 5 per cent more than the same period last year.
For the first time in years, there have been more foreign tourists than Spanish, with 830,224 and 793,511 respectively from June and August. The figures only take into account hotels, with 600,000 visitors in August alone, but the number of people staying in Malaga at campsites and rental apartments has also increased.
This increase in tourism is exciting news for any "Buy To Let" investors or holiday home buyers, looking to subsidise their mortgage payments with summer rentals. Coupled with some incredible deals available in Andalucia's Costa Del Sol (one of Spain's most popular destinations) with up to 60% reductions on luxury new homes, it is now a great time to secure a genuine bargain in Southern Spain.
You can find a sample of some of these deals, in the main menu under (Hot Properties).
