For the third consecutive month, travel to Spain was up. That is great news for a country currently going through a financial crisis.
About 7 million people visited in July according to Spain's government, which is an increase of 4.5 percent and the largest jump in traffic in over two years.
However, even with all the increased tourism to Spain over the last few months, overall travel decreased by 0.4 percent compared to the same time a year ago.
So who made their way to Spain in 2010 the most? That would be British travelers, who made up 7 million of the 30 million people that flocked to the southwestern tip of the Iberian peninsula. German and French guests round out the top three, which 5 million and 4.7 million visitors respectively.
Spain is no stranger to heavy tourism traffic, as it consistently ranks among the top three alongside both the United States and France.
