TWO MILLION EUROS is being invested in promoting tourism to La Manga among a number of international tour operators, especially with the opening of the Corvera Airport.
Plans are also being formulated to ensure that should the expected boost to the area take place, hotelsmay be able to stay open during the low season.
Speaking to Spanish media, the Tourism Minister Javier Celdran said that, “the arrival of the AVE High Speed Train combined with the opening of Corvera will trans-form the way we look at tourism inthe region of Murcia.
We can look forward to, for example, a tourist from Germany being able to cometo our region directly rather than travelling by road.”
It’s been a poor winter for the La Manga area as almost all the hotels have closed since last October; something that is hoped to changeover the next year or so.
Some have already begun to open this month and have boosted their custom by offering 25,400 beds to the pensioners’ tour organisation IMERSO across La Manga, Aguilas and in the city centre of Murcia.
