Between January and June this year, Spain recorded a 2.2% drop, close to one million, in tourist numbers, as well as a 3.1% decrease in overnight stays, according to the National Institute of Statistics (INE). Fears of excessive heat this summer and protests by locals against the onslaught of holidaymakers seen in recent years may be to blame for this fall in tourists.
