Cuba Reaches Four Million Tourists Arrivals

Cuba has currently reached about four million foreign visitors, with 54 days in advance, the Ministry of Tourism (MINTUR) of this country reported.

The report states that such data is a convincing example of the continuous increase of those who choose this archipelago as a destination.

MINTUR insists that despite the damage caused by Hurricane Irma and the campaigns to prevent visitors from other nations to come to know the island, the intense work of the sector’s entities managed to maintain interest in Cuba.

Precisely, thanks to that dedication, Cayo Santa Maria, Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo, located in central-north Cuban region, reopened their operations on November 1.

With such reopening, high tourist season (November-April) begins with all available tourist destinations of the country and with higher levels of services.

Such arrival confirms the expectations of the authorities who conveniently predicted that 2017 could close above 4.7 million foreign visitors.

Tourism Minister, Manuel Marrero, showed his confidence that the travel industry in this archipelago would maintain its rise.

Canada continues to be the first tourist market towards Cuba with 34 percent of total arrivals.

More than four million people traveled to Cuba in 2016 for the first time, for a 14.5 percent increase compared to the previous year.

About 68 airlines are flying to Cuba linking 70 major cities in the world, and in terms of cruises, about 25 ships are operating to which eight will be joined, with 265 stopovers and more than 170,000 passengers in general.
