La Gomera eager to attract more German cruise liners
The CMT fair in Stuttgart has become a point of reference for tourism and is considered a highly important event.
Minister of Tourism of the Cabildo of La Gomera, María Isabel Méndez, said that the participation in the event has had “very good results for the promotion of the isand in Germany, consolidating itself as a reference destination for this market.”
“In 2016 we closed the year with 80,000 more tourists than the previous year, and in the case of the Germans the trend has also been positive,” she added.
Metings were also held with various tour operators who offer La Gomera as a holiday destination.
“In this edition, special importance has been given to the accommodation of the island and its quality, under a concept complementary to the destination of sun and beach,” said the tourism councillor. “We have been highlighting activities such as sighting cetaceans, cultural offer, gastronomic and hiking.”
La Gomera is also keen to attract more cruise liners and is already included in several German shipping catalogues.
“The positioning of La Gomera within the tourist cruise market is already a reality that is reflected in its inclusion in the offer of very usual companies like AIDA,” said María Isabel Méndez.
