International tourism helps Spanish economy


June has been a successful month for Spanish tourism. The National Institute of Statistics (INE) has published that Spanish hotels registered 30,8 million overnight stays, 1,75% more than June 2012.

Overnights stays increased due to international travelers, who stayed at Spanish hotels 4,2% more time than last year. However, overnights of national tourists decreased 3’5%.

The increase of stays in hotels in June is a good point for the Spanish tourism sector. The beginning of the year was no good: overnight stays decreased in January, February and May, and this year’s Easter was no such as good as Easter 2012. As a result, overnights stays has decreased 0,7% in the first six months of this year.


The main destination in Spain for international travelers is Balearic Islands, followed by Catalonia and Canary Islands.

For Spanish tourists the main destinations are Andalusia, then Comunitat Valenciana and Catalonia.
