Costa Tropical reports a poor July
Wednesday, 05 August 2009

Businesses along the Costa Tropical are complaining that 2009 has kicked off at the lowest level of tourist spending in 15 years. Restaurants, hotels and traders have calculated a drop in takings of approximately 25% compared to the same period during 2008.

Hopes that new motorway opening will help

As the long-awaited stretch of the E15 motorway between La Herradura and Taramay in Almuñécar opens, businesses and restaurants are hoping to attract more spending tourists. Recently, it has become more difficult to predict occupancy rates, since visitors to the area increasingly are leaving it until the last minute to make bookings and worse still, leaving it until the last minute to cancel their bookings. Time will tell just how effective this new motorway will prove.
