Why is Tunisia so attractive in terms of recreation?
There are two decisive factors here: the Mediterranean coast and affordable prices for package tours. Tourist experts say that in 2018 Tunisia will be in great demand among tourists who want to relax on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. First of all, due to low prices in comparison with Spain and Greece. And also thanks to a good hotel base.
