The Canary Islands closed the year with notable falls in tourist income. At present all the tourist resorts of Lanzarote are still far from recovering the pre-pandemic income figures. Teguise has been the most affected, with a 66.3% difference in income in 2021 compared to 2019 and 20% less in occupied places. It is followed by Tías (Puerto del Carmen) with a 61% drop in income and 12% less in occupied places.
Yaiza (Playa Blanca) performed better, with a 52% drop in revenue equivalent to 14% fewer places.
