For his part, the Secretary General of the Municipality of Salto, Gustavo Chiriff, pointed out that “it is a very important launch because for us the autumn-winter is the high season, where a lot of people, especially from the south of the country and the metropolitan area, not having the destination of sun and beach, goes to the coast to enjoy the hot springs.

In particular reference to Salto, Chiriff highlighted that “it has a lot of things to offer. From thermal waters and parks, nature tourism, sport fishing, cultural tourism, religious tourism, bird watching. That is to say, in Salto there is a range of possibilities, where tourists can enjoy hot springs, but also other activities,” he concluded.

Regarding promotions, the leader highlighted that to attract more tourists, from private ventures and also the ventures of the Municipality, there are benefits to access accommodation and also tickets to thermal parks at a lower cost. In this case, for example in Termas de Daymán, all visitors in the fall-winter season will pay the resident rate, which is $150, he concluded.

Then, the Secretary General of the Municipality of Paysandú, Fermín Farinha, highlighted that his department has a diversified tourist offer: Guaviyú Hot Springs, Almirón, the latter are the only salt water hot springs in the country, to which is added a cultural proposal and a department that is prepared to receive visitors with “intensity and, above all, safety.”

Finally, the leader stressed that for this specific season, a package of benefits and promotions has been arranged, in this case from the private sector to the public sector, so that whoever decides to go to Paysandú has the possibility of doing so in a promotional manner, with tourist packages, also added with walking tours in the city itself and also in the surroundings of the hot springs, where there is a very important historical tourism activity, he concluded.

Finally, the General Director of the Secretariat, Ignacio Curbelo, pointed out that “we are very excited to accompany this launch of the high season of one of the most important tourist products that the country has. When this time of year comes, people want to go to the hot springs. But fortunately the destination has become seasonally adjusted and today, both Uruguayans and foreign visitors, enjoy thermal destinations all year round, which is also, of course, very important for the sector, said the MINTUR leader.
