The government approved the draft of the new tourism law for circularity and sustainability on Friday.
Planning amendment could open the way to more tourist accommodation places in Portocolom's historic area.
At present over 50,000 new places are being processed, which equate to a 15% increase on the existing number of tourist places.
While Barceló accepts that it is not possible to limit the actual number of tourists, there can be a limit established on the number of tourist places (in accommodation).
"Just as there has been an historical ceiling for hotel places, so we will proceed with regulating tourist rentals. There will have to be regulation of tourist places."
