SUMMER TOURISTS: 93 per cent occupancy during the first two weeks of August Photo credit: Mojacar town hall

MOJACAR had a “more than satisfactory” summer, the municipal Tourism Office announced.

Occupancy rates were high, reaching an average of 93 per cent during the first two weeks of August, with still higher figures depending on the type of accommodation.

Eighty per cent occupancy between June and October was equally encouraging, especially when hotels, hostels and tourist apartments had to respect maximum-capacity figures during this period.


The Tourism Office revealed that although until mid-September 93 per cent of visitors were Spanish, foreign tourists are returning to Mojacar, with a marked increase of face-to-face enquiries at the Tourism Office from British, French, Belgian, Swedish and Dutch visitors.

Linda came to Spain to live when she was 24, just over 52 years ago, and her husband is Spanish. She began writing for English-language local newspapers in the mid-1970s and hasn’t stopped since! She leads a Spanish life, which she believes is vital when conveying the news to English-speaking residents, and along the way she produced two editions of Expand Your Spanish, helping English-speakers to enlarge their knowledge of the language. She was excited to be in at the birth of the Euro Weekly News in 1999 and is still passionately writing for the paper 22 years later.
