Tenerife Tourism: 5.3 Million Visitors by the End of 2015

Tenerife tourism board expects to close the year with an increase of about a 2% or 3% in tourist arrivals amounting to 5.3 million tourists by year-end.

The announcement was made by the Spanish island’s Tourism Minister, Alberto Bernabé, who attributed the total number so far to the recovery of the Spanish market in particular, and to the stability of international tourism this year.

"This is one of the highest totals recorded historically, together with 2006, with 5.4 million visitors, and 2007 and 2008, also with about 5.3 million visitors," the minister explained in a press release.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
