Some Statistics on US Tourist Spending

Trail-to-garganta

Tourists from North America are the second largest group visiting Brazil after Argentinians. Spending an average of $89.70 per day the Brazilian government records their preferred destinations as:

  • Rio de Janeiro (62%)
  • São Paulo (21.3%)
  • Foz do Iguaçu (13.6%)
  • Salvador (12%)
  • Manaus (6.5%)

With an estimated 30,000 people annually not disembarking from cruise ships in Rio de Janeiro alone for lack of accessible disembarkation, transportation, and even high value sites such as the Christ statue at Corcovado and the top of Sugar Loaf there are many opportunities to increase Brazil's appeal. Although Foz do Iguaçu are easily accessible by elevated walkway that walkway is on the Argentine side of the river.

Potential solutions may lie in the launch of Vai Brasil's Viaje Mais project and the extension of the World Health Organization's Senior-Friendly Cities program. Certainly the Turismo para Todos project of the Instituto Interamericano sobre Deficiência e Desenvolvimento Inclusivo – IIDI intends to address the issue in port cities.

Os turistas norte-americanos são, depois dos argentinos, os que mais visitam o Brasil (foram 721.633 em 2006). Eles gastam em média U$ 89,70 por dia, mais do que os portugueses – também assíduos visitantes de nosso país. De acordo com o Estudo da Demanda Turística Internacional (2005), 34,9% dos turistas americanos visitaram o Brasil para fazer negócios ou participar de congressos e convenções; 32,5% vieram encontrar familiares e amigos e 28,1% vieram a lazer. O estudo mostra ainda que os destinos mais procurados pelos americanos são Rio de Janeiro (62%), São Paulo (21,3%), Foz do Iguaçu (13,6%), Salvador (12%) e Manaus (6,5%). A Embratur possui dois Escritórios Brasileiro de Turismo nos Estados Unidos: um em Nova York e outro em Los Angeles.
