In the first quarter of 2013, residents in Portugal made around 3.7 million tourism trips, 6.2% more than in the same quarter of 2012. This variation resulted mainly from the growth observed in trips motivated by “visit to relatives or friends” (12.4%), having been recorded decreases in trips from “Leisure, recreation or holidays” (-1.2%) and “Professionals or business” (-1.9%). Overnights stays showed a reduction of 9.3% this quarter.
