Thus, it was found that all the fifteen destinations that grew the most in searches during a year are national, with emphasis on Strength. The capital of Ceará led the list with 133% of growth in the period. "The city has invested a lot in tourism.

In addition to Brazilian destinations, the ranking also showed an increase in the search for Latin American countries in relation to other international destinations. In the list that compares the most searched destinations last year compared to this year, Orlando, which appeared in 13th position in 2019, was replaced by Buenos Aires in 2020. New York, which occupied 15th place, gave way to Santiago, in Chile.

“New York was replaced by Santiago, a city with much more affordable prices for Brazilians. In addition, it is important to remember that in 2020 we will have many long holidays and travelers may be looking for closer and shorter trips instead of saving the budget for an international trip., said in a note, Fleury.
