Cuba keeps tourism focus

Cuba is bravely continuing to develop its tourism industry, despite the obstacles imposed by the US economic, financial and commercial blockade.

Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel said that Cuban tourism intends by 2030 to have 252 new hotels, with 68 enlargement projects and 90 to increase the category.

About 54 camping sites, 32 nautical centres and marinas as a result of restoration and enlargement projects, naval workshops, and an International Diving Centre, are also on the list of priorities.

Plans also include 13 real estate development projects associated with golf courses (with 15,000 real estate units), 42 recreation and adventure projects and more than 100 logistic projects, mainly improvements in capabilities and technological equipment.

Tourism Minister Manuel Marrero said that the construction of over 2,000 hotel rooms were completed this year, totalling 72,900 rooms in June.

Mr Diaz-Canel stressed that tourism, in addition to being an important contributor to the economy, is also a bridge. With each tourist who visits us, the clauses of the imperial blockade are broken, he added.
