La Palma backs caravan tourism
La Palma is supporting initiatives to encourage caravan tourism.
The Cabildo has signed an agreement with the municipalities of Barlovento, Breña Alta, El Paso, Villa de Garafía, Los Llanos de Aridane, Puntallana and Tijarafe to financially support the execution of technical improvement works and support structures for the spaces enabled for motor-homes in those municipalities.
The works will be carried out following the projects presented by the various local councils for the promotion of what will be known as caravanning, a way of understanding the enjoyment of free time in direct contact with nature.
The agreement takes literally “the public, social and economic interest of a project that bets for a type of tourist activity that generates direct income to local companies.”
“With this agreement the island administration and the municipalities advance in the promotion of caravan tourism on the island, an activity that is having an important boom in the Canary Islands and that is compatible with any other type of tourism and has an outstanding advantage in boosting the economy insular,” said a spokesman for the Cabildo.
Under the agreement, the subsidised works to improve the specific spaces for caravaning will be able to run until September 30th, 2018
