• Corralejo promotes itself as one of the most important emergent destinations in Europe
• Corralejo highlights in Madrid the prize awarded by TripAdvisor
• The new American ambassador in Spain visits Corralejo’s exhibitor in Fitur LGBT
• The mayoress will give a speech tomorrow about LGBT sector together with Maspalomas and Ibiza
• The importance of this town after having been used as cinema set in the shooting of “Exodus” and “The Dictator” has been highlighted.
Corralejo Grandes Playas and the rest of La Oliva have started their tourist promotion this week in the International Tourist Fair in Madrid (Fitur), highlighting the recent award by Tripadvisor, which certifies that the tourist area in the North of Fuerteventura is the most important emergent tourist destination in Europe and the 9th in the world. An award won thanks to the opinions and scoring by TripAdvisor users, one of the most important tourist portals in the continent.
The Mayoress in La Oliva, Claudina Morales, and the Councillor of Tourism, Marcelino Umpiérrez, attended the inauguration of the fair in Madrid, the most important in Spain, and the third most important in Europe along with London and Berlin, aiming to deepen in the promotion of this town among the tour operators in the Peninsula. The symptoms of recovery regarding peninsular tourism registered in the last quarter of 2013 could extend to the year 2014, according to the forecast by the tourism management in Madrid.
Moreover, Corralejo Grandes Playas inaugurates its own display in the so called pink corner, where some of the destinations and companies supporting the LGBT sector (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transsexuals) gather. This initiative places Corralejo next to two already consolidated destinations in this sector, which will allow the specialised press to get to know the tourist area in the North of the Island even better, and its attractions for the LGBT community. We must highlight the efforts by Fuerteventura and Corralejo to promote as a tolerant and “gayfriendly” destination. We will also remark the presentation of the poster for the next “Rainbow Fuerteventura”, which will be celebrated from the 4th to the 8th of December.
The increasing importance of this town after being used as a film set after the shooting of “Exodus”, by Ridley Scott, the American film “The dictator” or “Invasor”, the last production by the director Daniel Calparsoro has also been highlighted.
Another interesting proposal in Fuerteventura are the boat trips in Corralejo, and Fuertecharter has also done its bit to get this award by Tripadvisor, as we are the first attraction in The Canary Islands, something we feel proud of.
With our trips in Fuerteventura, the boat trips and boat chartering we contribute to letting the tourists find out the wonders in the Northern area which has been so promoted and that visitors like so much, thus getting customer loyalty.
