AFTER a record number of visitors last year, Costa del Sol tourism figures have started 2015 getting better and better.

The latest figures from the National Statistics Institute (INE) show the number of hotel visitors in January, with Malaga Province registering a 10 per cent increase compared to the same month in 2014, with a total of 199,246 visits.

Elias Bendodo, head of the Costa del Sol tourism board, said that this was the third highest amount ever registered in January and the increase was higher than in both Andalucia (9.6 per cent) and Spain as a whole (7.5 per cent).

More hopeful signs came from hotel employment figures with a total of 7,322 people working at hotels within the province, 447 more than in January 2014.

dji phantom 2 vision spy drone in costa del solPersonal Spy Drones are the new fun toys for adults, and they can be used in so many different situations. 2 years ago we paid good money to have a professional video crew come through our holiday rental homes in La Cala de Mijas, and it produced some excellent videos. We have had so many guests say that they decided to stay with us based on two things: Our 5 out of 5 star review on every single website we advertise our rental homes on AND the video tour of the apartment. It really gives people a great idea of what we are all about and what to expect. Yesterday we had another idea: Let’s make an aerial video tour of the apartment complex, the trip to the beach, the local market, and nearby towns.
