Confidence and recognition of Cuba as an attractive and secure travel destination remains strong

August 29 (Granma) Despite campaigns organized and directed by the United States government to prevent the arrival of tourists to our country, as of August 15, Cuba had welcomed three million international visitors, thus far this year.

That so many people have chosen the island is evidence of the confidence and recognition Cuba has achieved as a travel destination, offering not only natural and cultural attractions, but also security.

According to information from the Ministry of Tourism, Canada remains the number one emissary market, followed by European countries, with Russia showing the most growth.

Cuba plans to continue expanding the number of rooms available and the construction of hotels, as Tourism Minister Manuel Marrero Cruz reported to the National Assembly last July, also stating that the arrival of more than 4,300,000 tourists is expected by the end 2019.
