According to the survey of foreigners entering Spain, a notable contribution to this increase was made by tourists from Germany, whose numbers soared 17.6 percent last month.

The numbers also show the increase of arrivals from the United States – 10 percent in May and 8.3 percent for the first five months of 2012 – and from Latin America, up 27.3 percent and 35.5 percent, respectively.
