Mallorca top destination in the world
Mallorca has replaced this summer Orlando as the most requested destination worldwide, according to Hotelbeds, showing that the Mediterranean strengthens its position as a leading tourist destination for sun and beach. According to these data, after Mallorca, Barcelona, Tenerife, Benidorm and Costa del Sol, are positioned as the top five preferred by tourists in Spain which, in turn, is becoming one of the main tourist worldwide destinations.
The report confirms that the Mediterranean is one of the most important tourist centers worldwide, as evidenced by the fact that, according to data from Hotelbeds, of the seven major destinations worldwide, six belong to this region.
Meanwhile, Greece is still a high demand destination, the third globally after Spain and the United States, despite the political and economic uncertainty has caused a slowdown in the creation of new reserves. The Hellenic country is followed by Turkey, Italy, Portugal and France as main destinations worldwide.
In the words of CEO of Hotelbeds, Carlos Muñoz, “the good figures for this summer predict another year of record for Spain as a destination. Globally, from Hotelbeds also we hope to consolidate our growth over 2014. ”

Along with the expected recovery of the domestic market, which is already the second issuer rating to Spain, the firm commitment of the traditional source markets for this destination is one of the pillars supporting the growth in the movement of visitors.
Thus, the British market has become the main source of tourists to our country. It is followed by Germany, whose travelers are choosing Spain only behind Turkey, who leads a short list of preferred by the Germans to travel this summer destinations. Ireland and Italy closed the ranking of the five main markets in Spain, according to data from Hotelbeds.
Despite the importance of sun and beach tourism, especially during the summer, there are many other reasons that make Spain a favorite destination for visitors. Destination activities are an essential part of any trip, key to turning a vacation into an unforgettable experience.
