Use of the future tense

In one quiz there was a sentence:   Hace calor.  Saldré al jardin un rato.   Voy a salir  sounds more natural and is what I hear more often from South Americans. Is the use of the future tense more common in Spain?

Hola Andrew

Yes, you're right. The near future is more commonly used in Spain and in Latin America. 

This sentence would probably sound more natural as you said using "voy a salir..".

Saludos
