The decrease in this type of occupation in Spain was almost 30 points higher than that recorded in the overnight stays of travelers who chose Galicia during the month of July

Overnight stays in non-hotel accommodation (tourist apartments, campsites, rural tourism accommodation and tourist hostels) stood at 391,718 in the month of July in Galicia, which is a decrease of 21.7% compared to those recorded in the same month in 2019, according to data from the National Statistics Institute (INE). With regard to the distribution of overnight stays nationwide, Galicia accounted for 2.5% of those recorded in July, compared to 1.1% the previous year.

Although there were decreases in all categories, these were not as sharp as in the country as a whole, where the drop in overnight stays was 49.9% compared to the same period last year, with 9.9 million overnight stays in some extrahotel accommodation. This year-on-year decrease, the lowest since the coronavirus pandemic broke out, is the result of a 19.4% drop in overnight stays by Spaniards and a 77% drop in overnight stays by foreigners. The type of accommodation that shows a greater recovery is rural tourism. In July it was used by 430 thousand travelers who made 1.5 million overnight stays, 10% less than a year ago.

In the case of Galicia there was a greater decrease in the number of hostels, as a result of the drop in the arrival of pilgrims, especially foreigners, which meant a drop of almost 80% of the overnight stays with respect to last year. In the case of campsites, the number of overnight stays went from 311,878 in July last year to 263,624 last month, the lowest, with barely 15% less. In the case of the tourist apartments, the fall was of 22% and in the case of the rural tourism of 38%, counting last month 41,105 overnight stays against 67,151 of the same month of the previous year.

The province of Pontevedra stands out in the ranking of the 15 national provinces with the highest number of overnight stays both in tourist apartments and in campsites. In addition, the INE highlights Rías Baixas among one of the tourist areas as the one with the highest number of extrahotel nights in July in rural tourism accommodation.
