Of the total number of tourists who visited the country, 15% were on board cruise ships, ie 365,000 people. As for the revenue generated by the sector, figures from the Comptroller General of the Republic showed that tourism spending reached $3.233 billion, ie $179 million more than reported in 2013.

Prensa.com reports that "... Hotels with less than 100 rooms in the capital city obtained a cumulative occupation rate of 53.9% in the 12 months of last year, while larger establishments reported occupancy levels of 56%. "

"... There was a 75% increase in entry of French tourists in 2014, because at the end of 2013 the airline AirFrance established direct flights from Paris to Tocumen. In addition Argentine visitors decreased by 17% compared to last year. "
