Nearly 1.2 million people toured the country in this last long weekend and mobilized $37,304 million in the gastronomic, hotel and commercial sectors, while a summer season with “very high” movement figures is anticipated.

The Minister of Tourism and Sports of the Nation, Matías Lammens, stated that “hand in hand with PreViaje, tourism created tens of thousands of jobs during 2022, generating opportunities in every corner of the country. With the impetus of the arrival of million tourists from abroad, 2023 will be a record year for the sector”.

According to the surveys of the Argentine Tourism Observatory (OAT), 1.2 million people travel the country. According to the Argentine Confederation of Medium Enterprises (CAME), $37,304 million were mobilized.

CAME revealed that travelers spend $8,772 per person per day, 8.3% higher than the last long weekend in November.

The last holiday for this date had been in 2020: compared to that year, when there was little movement due to the pandemic, 130% more tourists traveled, and the economic impact, measured at real prices, was multiplied by five.
