Holy Week boosts the sector with increases in all subsectors: apartments, campsites, rural tourism accommodation and hostels.


  • Apartments: Overnight stays in tourist apartments grew by 18.8%, with the Canary Islands as the preferred destination (more than 2.4 million overnight stays) and Tenerife as the most demanded area (more than 802,000 overnight stays). The price rose by 12.9%.

The data for March, marked by Holy Week, are not entirely comparable to those of 2023, as the holiday was celebrated in different months. It is recommended to wait for the results of April for a joint analysis.

Without a doubt, the non-hotel tourist accommodation sector is booming, driven by both domestic and international demand.
