TRIVAGO searches for Teulada-Moraira are up 46 per cent since last year and the municipality is the third most searched for national destination in the whole of Spain after Formentera and Lekeitio, figures revealed earlier this week.
Mayor Carlos Linares attributes the results to the “good management of local businesses” and thanked “local entrepreneurs” for their efforts.
The figures come after July’s municipal occupancy figures were almost six per cent higher than last year’s figures.
The advertising campaign La Proxima en Teulada-Moraira launched in Madrid in June is reported to have had a positive effect on the number of visitors heading to the municipality from the capital, along with the efforts earlier this year after the municipality signed an agreement with airline company Iberia to appear in their magazine – read every month by two million people in more than 50 countries.
Describing tourism as the “economic engine” of the municipality, Linares says that the relevant bodies will work very hard to continue to invest in tourism and promote Teulada-Moraira, by innovating in new media with which to reach more members of the public.
