The consulting firm Focus Market carried out a survey of the different destinations that Argentines choose to travel from Thursday, April 14 to Sunday, April 17, 2022 and reported that the most wanted nationally are Mar del Plata, Mendoza and Bariloche.
The study, which was carried out on March 21 and took into consideration a package for two people traveling by bus and staying in a 3-star hotel (with breakfast) for four days and three nights, showed that the cost of vacationing in “La Feliz ” reaches $52,800, while in the case of Mendoza it reaches $80,000 and Bariloche to 105,400 pesos.
The survey was carried out in the same destinations and hotels, but traveling by plane, where in some cases prices triple for those dates. In the case of Mar del Plata, traveling by plane and staying at a three-star hotel with breakfast included costs $157,500, while traveling to Mendoza costs $160,000 and to San Carlos de Bariloche about 203,000 pesos.
“The long weekend of Holy Week is on its way to surpassing the numbers for 2021, which according to CAME were 1.9 million tourists circulating throughout the country. The Pre-Travel Plan continues to collaborate for record numbers in tourism that will probably exceed the numbers of 2019 when 2.1 million tourists had been transferred for this weekend “said Damián Di Pace, director of the Focus Market Consultant.
In the case of Mar del Plata, traveling by plane and staying in a three-star hotel with breakfast included costs $157,500, while traveling to Mendoza costs $160,000 and to San Carlos de Bariloche about 203,000 pesos.
“According to Fecoba (Federation of Commerce and Industry of the City of Buenos Aires), which surveyed the hotel and gastronomic SME sector, 3 out of 10 businessmen maintain that tourist activity will increase next Easter weekend driven by departures without restrictions in the interannual comparison, the incentive generated by the Previaje plan and the economic differences that exist to leave the country in such a short period of time”, added the specialist.
