Increased Costa Blanca hotel occupancy rates for last month are giving further early weight to the view that it is going to be another bumper year for tourism in the region. After last year’s record tourist figures, both nationally and locally, and a rise in January in passenger numbers for Alicante-Elche airport, overnight hotel stays for the Alicante Province region were up by over six percent compared to the first month of 2014. Returns showed that overnight stays amounted to nearly 800 thousand in the area, with large increases for domestic visitors, as well as a more modest rise for international guests, with Benidorm(pictured), continuing to be very popular.
