Havana, Jul 28 (Prensa Latina) The International Event on Nature Tourism Turnat 2015, set for next September, will have amid its main topics the environmental protection, said its organizers.

“On this occasion, the tenth international event will be held in the Cuban western region where truly interesting landscapes are located”, said Emma Rosa Fonseca, commercial director of Ecotur, and Franklin Marin, specialist in that company.

The event is scheduled from September 22 to 27 this year, when a growing spiral of Cuban tourism is occurring, particularly in nature and adventure offers.
