"a safe place to travel to", - for who ? Sounds like he's more concerned about earning money from visitors than the health of Spain's inhabitants. Well, what about us ? We should be isolated until we're all vacinated in Spain, anything less will put us in a far worse situation...

Majorca may now appreciate that Tourists will now have to be won and maintained instead of taken them for granted. Armengol..... Majorca will have to take it’s place in the queue

Spain has the worlds highest competitiveness tourism rate. Spain number 2 most visited country in the world, tourism give a huge impact to Spanish economy. Tourism is a Spain’s one of the biggest power, that doesn’t have other country. And I do not understand why government is not supporting and care it enough. Work of the Hoteliers, tour operators, tour agencies are very important, because those work is giving a big impact of businesses of bars, restaurants, shops and souvenir shops etc. Government literally abandoned them instead of support first. Trying to help restaurants but tour operators lost 92% of those business!
