The Balearics' agro-tourism industry has continued to enjoy steady growth this year, despite the slump in tourism. The latest set of booking figures show that in August, the Balearic agro-tourism sector accounted for 22 per cent of the Spanish market. Cataluña enjoyed a 16 per cent share of the market, Andalucia 11 per cent, Aragon 10 per cent and Castilla y León six per cent. During August, a total 206.371 tourists, domestic and foreign, stayed at agro-tourism hotels across Spain, 16 per cent more than in August last year. Balearics however, is still struggling to increase the size of its domestic market. As far as Spanish agro-tourists are concerned, the top destinations are Castilla y León, Cataluña, Cantabria, Asturias, Galicia, Aragón and Navarra. Over the past few years the number of agro-tourism hotels in the Balearics has risen sharply, mirroring a national trend as demand has also grown as part of the independent holiday boom. More and more people are arranging their own holidays and agro-tourism hotels are becoming increasingly popular for long weekends.
