Guatemala Expects 30.000 Salvadorans
Even though visitor projections are good, they are lower than the 40.000 people visiting 2008's August Fairs ("Ferias Agostinas").
Thursday, July 30, 2009
Guatemala invested $250.000 in a touristic campaign to attract visitors from El Salvador to these fairs. Authorities also expect the arrival of many Salvadorans who had initially planned to visit Honduras, but are now deterred by the institutional crisis in said country.
Even though Guatemala received 3.1% more tourists in 2009, each one spent less, as tourism sales remained flat.
During 2010, the industry generated sales for $ 1,378 million, 6.2% more than the same period in 2009.
During the first quarter of 2013, tourist arrivals grew by 7.7% compared with the same period last year.
The Salvadoran Tourism Ministry has announced that there will be greater investment in the sector next year.
