Reyes Maroto, hopeful of some tourism at Easter.

31-01-2021Efe

Spain's tourism minister, Reyes Maroto, said on Saturday that she hopes that national tourists will enable a restarting of tourism at Easter.

"It is difficult to foresee, but if the health security conditions are met, Easter - for us (the government) - could see a restart of national travel." The government, she assured, is working on a reopening of tourism.

At an international level, there could be a reopening in summer, if the situation with the pandemic improves and the vaccination process is accelerated. Once international mobility recovers, Spain will be well positioned as a tourist destination. "Spain, along with Italy, continues to be the preferred country for travel."

Absolutely irresponsible of Spain 🇪🇸 to allow people to travel from 2nd of February never mind opening up tourism from anywhere by Easter especially from United Kingdom !

So the Island charges a ridiculous amount of tourist tax (which most ends up unaccounted for), tourists are met with graffiti telling them to go home as they are not wanted, and now they want our money again, we are being asked to holiday in the middle of a Pandemic?

But isn't that where most of the covid cases came from? Tourists from the mainland had infection rates amongst the worst in the world. So, is it lives or money?

Sure, we can have a summer season this year, all Spain has to do is vaccinate all of it's population in preparation for it. Don't hold your breath though, check the progress rate, and do the math.......

But doesn't Spain have a high infection rate? Why import the disease, regardless of the source. I guess the argument is life v economy. I know where I vote....
