THE Axarquia and Costa Tropical areas are having a great Easter so far, with hotel occupation at an estimated 85 per cent.
In Almuñecar, bookings for tonight, April 2, and Good Friday have reportedly reached 95 per cent of hotel capacity.
Taking into account the fact that Easter is traditionally a time when people leave it until the last minute to book, this could well mean many establishments will be declaring there is no room at the inn!
With exceptionally good weather forecast and temperatures expected to reach up to 25ºC, local beaches are likely to be almost as popular as the Holy Week processions and El Paso Passion of Christ re-enactment on Good Friday.
Andalucia in general and the coastal areas in particular are proving to be extremely attractive to visitors this Easter.
The number of bookings, length of visits and average spending provision are leading those in the tourism industry to start feeling hopeful for a better year.
