El Salvador continues in the showcase of world tourism, thanks to the execution of one of the main projects to attract foreign visitors by the Government of President Nayib Bukele, such as Surf City, in addition to the security strategy through the Territorial Control Plan and the exception regime, which are making the country the safest in Latin America.
An example of this growing interest on the part of international tourists is the recent arrival of one of the most luxurious cruise ships in the world, such as the Scenic Cruise Lines, which docked last October 8 at the Port of Acajutla, with more than 250 tourists. on board.
Another example of this is that at the end of last week, the vice president of the World Surf League (WSL), Graham Stapelberg, arrived in El Salvador to confirm that two important international-class tournaments of this sport would be held here.
These are the Championship Tour (CT), which will take place from June 9 to 18, 2023 and the Longboard Tour, which will take place between September 19 and 25 of the same year. These events will be qualifying events for the 2024 Paris Olympics.
“Recently we held a successful Championship Tour (CT) event that demonstrated the incredible setting that El Salvador has,” said Stapelberg, who added that: “We hope to continue working closely with CORSATUR and have a bigger event next year in Punta Rock”.
There is no doubt that these events place El Salvador as a safe destination worth visiting, investing in and living in, as the Minister of Tourism, Morena Valdez, has stated on several occasions.
Thanks to the push that the Government of President Nayib Bukele continues to give to tourism in El Salvador, the country is among the few nations in the world that by the end of 2022 will exceed the number of international tourists that arrived in 2019, which was the year of prepandemic.
According to the head of the branch, until September El Salvador had received 1.8 million foreigners, which is about to exceed the goal of 1.9 million proposed for this year.
