This month, NexusTours secured its spot as a destination management leader in Cuba with the signing of a strategic agreement with Grupo Gaviota.
Grupo Gaviota is currently the most established travel company in Cuba as it is known for having the most experienced and skilled personnel on the island.

NexusTours enjoys a strong operational infrastructure in Cuba, which includes its own office and nearly 150 employees who are ready to service the country’s nine major destinations as well as the nearly 800,000 passengers expected to arrive next year.
By securing this deal, NexusTours will hold 30 percent share of the destination management service market on the island.
