Tuesday, January 7, 2020

In the case of income left by tourists, it increased by $244 million for the years in question, from $1,533 million to $1,777 million.

Tourism Minister Morena Valdez told Laprensagrafica.com that "... the reduction in the level of travel warnings issued by the United States to its citizens favored the flow of visitors from that country."

Valdez added that "...'There were two peak periods: July, October-November, increasing the income of tourists from North America; that has a lot to do with the fact that they lowered the alarm just in the last quarter. Just when the alarm goes down, more people from the United States start coming in."
