HOTEL occupancy registered in Nerja during the carnival season reached 89.46 per cent.
Head of the Tourism Development Department, Bernardo Pozuelo, explained part of the success was due to the advertising campaign carried out at the international tourism fair FITUR.
Dozens of calls were received at the tourist office by visitors who wanted information on the carnival festivities scheduled for 2015, which showed the great interest sparked by the event, according to council representatives.
Councillor for Popular Traditions, Sandra Jimena, announced that during the parade, many visitors said they had come to Nerja specifically to enjoy the carnival festivities.
The balconies of hotels located around the town’s streets were full of tourists who wanted to enjoy the best view of the carnival parade.
At the municipal tourist office, 451 visits were registered during the weekend by visitors who requested information regarding schedules, routes and festivities related to carnival, aptly named ‘Festival of Tourist Attraction’ in 2013.
