The Spanish campsites reached an average of national occupation around 70% in Holy Week, the same figure that was predicted, according to the data that has spread today the Spanish Federation of Camping Entrepreneurs (FEEC).
The bad weather and that Holy Week was ahead about two weeks with respect to 2017 has caused that this year the average occupation is 10 percentage points lower than the previous year.
Andalusia, Murcia and Barcelona have registered good general data, thanks to the last-minute sun of the coast. In these coastal areas, 90% occupancy in bungalows and 70% in plots has been achieved.
However, the best figures have been given in Navarre, Aragon and La Rioja, where the occupation of the bungalows has reached 100%, while the plots have remained at 65%, 70% and 75% respectively . FEEC has highlighted that the campsites in the province of Huesca, near the ski resorts of Formigal, Cerler and Candanchú, will maintain “a high occupancy throughout the month of April”, due to the amount of snow accumulated.
In the interior (Castilla y León, Castilla-La Mancha, Extremadura and Madrid) the bungalows have worked well, with about 90% occupancy, although the plots have remained around 55%, below the initial forecasts.
The north (Cantabria, Asturias and the Basque Country) has been marked by climatic instability. The bungalows have registered an average occupancy of 75% in these communities and only 50% in plots.
