Uruguay forecasts good tourist season

Montevideo, Dec 24 (Prensa Latina) Tour operators, hoteliers and analysts are seeing good signs for the current tourist season in Uruguay, particularly for the sun and beach tourism.

The first Argentine, Brazilian and national tourists are already arriving in Punta del Este and other seaside resorts, together with cruise ships, which brought more than 6,000 cruisers last week alone.

It is traditional that the flow of foreign visitors increases after Christmas holidays on the beaches of Maldonado, east of here.

Two summers marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, with sanitary restrictions and border closures that had a negative impact on the tourism industry, are now behind us.

The Economic Research Center forecasts that, from December 2022 to March 2023, some 890,000 Argentines will visit this country.

Around 200,000 Brazilians are also expected in that period.

Minister of Tourism Tabare Viera predicts a season with about three million tourists, which would mean a recovery after the pandemic.

He said that, in 2017, the country received 3,800,000 tourists, a record difficult for now to match due to loss of air connectivity, among other factors.
