Spain has received over 5 million foreign tourists in the first two months of the year. This represents a 4.5% increase from last year’s numbers.

United Kingdom was the market that delivered more tourists to Spain in the first two months of the year, despite suffering a decline of 5.6%, followed by Germany and France.

In the first two months,  878,257 German tourists travelled to Spain, a number virtually unchanged over the same period last year. As for the French market, third in number of arrivals, an increase of 4.9% was registered.

Interesting is the behaviour of Nordic tourists, which accounted for 10.9% of the foreign tourists in January and February. This is an increase of 14.6% over the same period last year. For its part, the Italian tourism increased by 18.3% over January and February last year. The same growth rate recorded the arrival of tourists from Belgium. Other significant growth markets are the Netherlands (23%), Switzerland (20%) and the U.S. (10.1%).
