The mayor thanked the Director of the Area of Analysis and Tourism Intelligence in Tourism and Planning Costa del Sol, Rafael Fuentes, “for his good disposition when it comes to solving all the doubts raised from the tourism sector”.
In this way, as he explained, this tool lets know from the number of tourist beds available at all times or the number of people who stay overnight in Benalmádena during any day of the year, and even the origin of most tourists who choose the city as a destination, or even know habits, customs and places most visited by tourists.
